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.
