The AEGIS Spring Conference took place at Holborn Bars on Thursday 15th March 2018 and was fully booked with over 85 delegates.  Speakers included Julie Robinsion - ISC; Helen Clews - British Council; Clodagh Wilkinson - Bournemouth Borough Council; and Dai Durbridge - Browne Jacobson.  All our speakers helped us to raise awareness of the importance of AEGIS accredited guardians and the safeguarding of international students.  The child is our absolute priority in everything we do at AEGIS.

We have received some encouraging feedback about the day:

"I am writing to thank you for such an excellent conference in London.  I learnt a great deal and found the subject matter to be of huge interest.  And it was great to sit and chat to other delegates on my table, all of whom were very committed to AEGIS and the work you do." School delegate

"Thank you for organising such a relevant and interesting conference." Guardianship delegate

"I enjoyed all of the sessions yesterday.  Also a great venue - you guys did a great job.  Looking forward to next year's conference!" Guardianship delegate

"A very valuable day.  Thank you." School delegate.

"My first conference and I enjoyed it and got a lot from it." School delegate

The new AEGIS Inspection Handbook and Guardianship Organisation Minimum Standards has now been released.  Much hard work has gone into this all-in-one document which provides clear information and support for Guardianship Organisations wishing to go through our inspection process.  

We have also introduced new fees which make the process more affordable for smaller companies just starting out in this sector.  

Our aim is to share best practice in the guardianship of international students.  The child is our priority!
