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!
