LSC Education attended the recent BSME Conference in Bahrain followed by IPSEF conference in Kuala Lumpur. Both events provided several excellent days of information-sharing, ideas and discussion on the success, growth and development of the international schools’ market. According to ISC Research's market update at the conference, opportunities continue to be burgeoning for investment in education in the Middle East and Asia.

A range of themes ran through the conferences, focusing on quality teaching and learning, curriculum choices, school design and build, staff recruitment and CPD, financing school projects, legal and regulatory issues and investment opportunities, as well as discussions on the many business models available to owners and operators.

We look forward to IPSEF Middle East conference in Dubai, in October and to continue working with BSME schools and leaders over the coming year.
