Yasemin will be presenting ‘Why Guardianship Matters’ at the BAISIS Conference in Birmingham on Friday 10th March 2017. She will be available all day if anyone has any queries about guardianship.
The British Association of Independent Schools with International Students (BAISIS) www.http://baisis.org.uk exists to promote best practice in academic and pastoral provision for international students at UK independent schools and colleges and to represent the interests of its members at the national level.
Members are drawn from independent schools, study centres and colleges. Originally founded in 1997 by Bedford, Rossall, Sherborne and Taunton Schools, membership has grown steadily and today the association is an influential organisation which occupies, and speaks for, an important niche sector in international education. BAISIS exists to provide help in the form of training, development and mutual support to its members and for quality assurance purposes. This is achieved through regular meetings, training from inside and outside the Association and through a bespoke annual conference. All member institutions provide a supportive pastoral framework and quality academic environment for international students. BAISIS also represents the interests of schools and colleges with international students in the UK at the national level, through its membership of the All Party Parliamentary Group on International Education, the British Council International Education Advisory Group and its partnerships with other organisations.
