Best Start Education was founded by Director Elena Colquhoun in 2014. Elena has significant experience in the world of education and of looking after students as they live and learn in the UK. The current size of the company enables Elena to play a direct role in supporting each student, successfully meeting one of the organisation’s aims to offer a highly personalised level of service.
The lead inspector reported:
“Parents and students are overwhelmingly positive about the service they receive from Best Start Education and most have chosen the organisation based on personal recommendation. Best Start Education offers the highest possible standards of care to international students.”
Elena gave the following feedback about the process:
“We are delighted with the outcome of the Gold Standard reinspection. AEGIS accreditation was a very thorough process, which involved checking all the documentation, inspecting host families and getting feedback from schools, parents and students. It was constructive and helped to ensure that our standards continued to be kept at the highest possible level. I recommend other guardianship organisations to join AEGIS, as you get support from Yasemin and the team during challenging times like the current pandemic.”
AEGIS offers the highest level of inspection and accreditation for guardianship organisations.
