Mobile families would like…
Respect for Culture
Mobile families would like others to respect their cultural traditions, routines and values. They may have very different views on learning, family roles, home life, work, and the value of formal education and its cultural relevance.
Participation in planning
Mobile families want to be involved in planning and decisions that affect their everyday lives. They want opportunities to voice opinions in meaningful and participative ways. They want their voices to be heard and acted upon.
Flexible learning allows families to continue education during periods of travel and respects the mobile lifestyle. Flexible learning means providing a wide range of creative and adaptable opportunities for learning, offering and valuing different routes to gaining qualifications, and celebrating mobility as a positive contribution to children’s learning.
