AEGIS Homestay Safeguarding Training for non-members

By Offshorly Dev August 10, 2023

This training covers the basics of safeguarding for homestays appointed by guardianship organisations.

AEGIS recognises just how crucial homestays are in the safeguarding of international students. 
The main aims of AEGIS are:
• To ensure that a guardianship organisation meets the requirements of current safeguarding and child protection legislation in relation to the care of international students studying in the UK. 
• To ensure that the highest standards of care, safety and supervision in respect of the pastoral, social, cultural and educational welfare of international students are maintained by the guardianship organisation.
You are an important extension of the guardianship organisation and it is vital that you understand your safeguarding responsibilities. 


This is a click-through course which involves reading and should take around 30 minutes. There will be multiple-choice questions in the quiz sections. You can recap at any time by choosing the relevant course section.  Once each quiz section is submitted, you will not be able to amend your responses. A certificate will be awarded on successful completion of the course.
Course Fee for a homestay not linked to an AEGIS-accredited guardianship organisation: £20
