Learning Support and Mentoring

At Fredel Education we are aware that many children need some support and assistance as they prepare to transition to a UK school. This may be help across a range of school subjects or support to improve their level in a specific subject. We have a very experienced team of tutors and mentors who can offer coaching and mentoring that is designed to help your child achieve the standards required by UK schools. We can achieve this objective because we know the UK schools so very well. We are not offering general coaching or extra help on a random basis. Rather we assess the needs of your child with regard to their entering the UK school system and we develop a programme specific to these needs.

A specific service Fredel Education offers is support and tutoring for a child who is preparing to sit the COMMON ENTRANCE EXAMINATION. This is the examination specific to leading UK senior schools and is normally taken at 13 years of age. Some schools may ask children applying for admission to sit this examination (held in June each year). If the school requests a child sit this examination then the child will definitely need expert support and advice from teachers who are experienced in this examination. The subject range and the syllabus for each subject examined are different to what most children will study at school in Romania. It is not often that a school will ask a child from Romania to sit the Common Entrance Examination. Where a UK school does ask a child to sit the Common Entrance Examination Fredel Education can work with the family and the child’s school in Romania to design a study plan that will prepare your child for the Common Entrance Examination. Our experience shows that Romanian children do perform well in the Common Entrance Examination (and gain admission to their chosen school) but only if they have followed a plan designed by teachers who know well the Common Entrance examination.

Fredel Education offers the widest range of leaning support and mentoring services available in Romania. This is because we have an unrivalled understanding of both the Romanian education system and the UK system. Our programmes cover specific subjects, include the full range of subjects studied and we help children adapt their learning style to that which applies in the UK schools. This can be through a program of one-on-one coaching sessions or from our “Prepare for Life at UK School” sessions which we hold each summer in a range of cities and “offsite” locations across Romania.

‘Prepare for Life at UK School” are 3 day programmes held in the summer and which introduce the British way of teaching, showing how students have to develop initiative and create their interest in and understanding of a subject. Also we provide a thorough introduction to the style of life at a UK school….we play many of the sports available at UK schools, we discuss what can be gained by your child getting involved with drama, music and a range of other subjects that UK schools excel at. We look at the ways of school life in the UK, the British sense of humour and how to get along with kids from a truly international background. The courses are set up for all age groups and are fun and interactive. The aim is to make your child feel confident about going to school in the UK. This is key to your child successfully entering the UK school system. We highlight the many wonderful things they have in Romania and which we know their new colleagues in the UK schools will enjoy hearing about and which will make for strong bonds and friendships from the first days at a new school in the UK. They ensure your child finds the transition to a UK school to be a straightforward process and not a major challenge. This is wonderful for your child a great relief for the parents!

Fredel Education offers full support through the entire time your child is at school in the UK and not merely during the application phase. Our team can advise on how to interpret school reports, help with subject and course selection. Where you child or the family have concerns or issues we can help and advise. The advantage of Fredel Education is that we, as Brits, understand the UK/British education system and the broader society in the UK. It is not a big jump from Romania to the UK in terms of lifestyle but there are some differences and Fredel Education specialists can help explain these and in this way they do not become a significant issue. We often work with families through each year of their child’s schooling in the UK and this includes helping with university selection and preparation for application and admission to UK and US universities.

At Fredel Education we are the leading provider of support for children with special needs. We have the greatest range of experience of the special needs of children of any adviser in Romania and we know there are schools in the UK that focus on each kind of special need. The great news is that these amazing schools can allow a child with even the most extreme needs to gain a good education, address their needs in a positive way and enter adult life well prepared and able to enjoy a full and enjoyable life. Please refer to the “Special Needs” section on the “Our Services” part of our site for more specific information and please DO get in contact. We are hugely sensitive to and supportive of children with special needs and no group in Romania knows this group of children and how to help and support them better than Fredel Education.
