With the job market in the United Kingdom competitive it is just natural that families look for any way how they can increase their children's chances for a good career.

Most of the time, the schools families send their children to can already be one, if not the one, deciding factor of what career paths a child will be able to take in the future.

Public schools are increasingly seen as the second choice, given that public schools are often coming with problems that can range from overcrowded classrooms to underfunding.

This is where families should consider a good private school.

The United Kingdom fortunately has numerous renowned private schools available. Many of those private, independent schools have established a great reputation which alone is often all that is needed to get the door open to a good career.

Employers will in all likelihood prefer those applicants that come from good schools. If your child has a good school listed on his or her CV, it can give them a huge advantage on the job market later on in life.

Not all children are equally at ease with learning, be it foreign languages, maths or any other valuable skill and knowledge. For those students who may require additional help, private independent schools are usually the best choice. With less students per class, as is the case in private schools in the United Kingdom, teachers can focus better those students who need some additional help. As a result, your child will usually be able to significantly improve his or her grades in a private school.

At the U.K.'s premier private school in Hertfordshire Kingshott School you can learn all about it.

camper van to get around
Perfect mobility, the ability to get around and to be where you need to be reliably and on time sure plays a major role for  a large number of businesses. Think about the postal service, a pizza delivery service, a manufacturer of goods, a doctor who needs to visit his outpatients, just to name a few.

Almost anyone has a car today and chances are if you have a business you might also own a transport van. But sometimes it could be worth it if you look at alternative ways for your transportation too. I have found that for certain professions, in particular for those such as for freelancers, journalists and photographs a camper van can be a very smart choice.

Why a camper van?

As compared to your car or your typical commercial transport vehicle, a camper van also allows you to use it as a place to sleep and to stay placed for a a few days. This can be ideal for those people who need to spend a short time at certain locations, say that a photographer who is looking for a great spot to shoot in the middle of nowhere or the journalists who wants to travel around to festivals and similar events without wanting to stay in hotels and bed & breakfast places. The added benefit here of course is that you can save a good amount of money all at the same time.

Sometimes a job may not require you to travel all the time but only on occasion or during certain times of the year. Let's say you are a journalist who is reporting about music festivals. You don't necessarily need to own a camper van since festival season will normally be limited to  a few months per year only. In this case it can be a good idea that you get in touch with a VW camper hire. You can then rent a van at the right time, say for a month or two when you need it. This is a very efficient and economic way to get around for your job.
