Globeducate announces a new strategic partnership with IEG on becoming a shareholder in the group.
IEG ́s four schools in Morocco and The Netherlands have joined Globeducate, one of the world's leading K12 education groups, now with 60 + premium bilingual and international schools, and online programmes, and working in 12 countries.
IEG, established in 2015, is a network of schools with more than 4,500 students across four schools in Morocco (Lycée Française Guy de Maupassant, Sophie Germain French High School in Rabat, and Ecole Trilingue Internationale, Casablanca) and International French School d ́Amsterdam in the Netherlands. The schools offer modern and contemporary facilities, including amphitheatres, semi-Olympic swimming pools and Fab-labs.
The bilingual schools in IEG will benefit from working closely with Globeducate ́s EIB (Ecole Internationale Bilingue) schools in Paris, a reference in French-English bilingual education for more than 60 years, and will also work with Bilingual European School, Milan. The schools will also strengthen their educational offering through close collaboration with other Globeducate schools and participating in Globeducate Events, as well as working closely with our partners such as WWF, Eco-Schools, LEGO® Education and Arts International.
Lamia Outgenza, Managing Director of International Education Group, said: "IEG is proud to have Globeducate as a shareholder and strategic partner. For IEG and its schools, this is a unique opportunity to become part of one of the largest school networks in the world and to benefit from a daily expertise that will undoubtedly allow us to continue to innovate in order to fully meet the expectations of families and students."
Amine Lahrichi, Secretary General in charge of Operations at Saham: "Saham is delighted to join forces with Globeducate to continue supporting IEG. Globeducate is a prestigious partner with whom we share the same values and ambition. Its entry into IEG's capital is a recognition of the quality of the work accomplished since
2015 and which we will be keen to continue together."
Luca Uva, CEO, Globeducate, said: “We are delighted to partner further with Saham to further develop IEG, and we look forward to working with the entire IEG network to deliver excellence in education to its entire community. This is an exciting development for both Globeducate and IEG. IEG schools will benefit from access to our world-class educators, exciting learning experiences and state-of-the-art teaching platforms. I know that IEG is proud to have Globeducate as a shareholder and strategic partner.”
We look forward to welcoming some of our new colleagues to the Globeducate Leadership Conference in September, and to meeting students and teachers from these schools at our events in the new school year.
