Accreditation is crucial for any organisation in any field. The stamp of approval from an impartial, external governing body assures that the organisation under scrutiny is doing things properly.
International parents and students are asked to choose a family friend or a Guardianship Organisation when they enrol their child into a UK boarding school. We want parents to understand the importance of choosing an AEGIS-accredited guardian and what that accreditation actually means. They should be aware of the risk they may take if they choose otherwise.
With so many Guardianship Organisations to choose from, AEGIS continues to do their best to help parents by offering an Assessment and Inspection framework in order to assess the quality of UK guardianship organisations.
We at Bright World know what it means to be accredited, the question now is: what does it mean to you?
“Becoming a fully accredited member of AEGIS involves a rigorous inspection process. Accreditation will only be granted once the inspectors are satisfied that the Guardianship Organisation meets all of the AEGIS inspection criteria and standards.” Yasemin Wigglesworth Executive Officer, AEGIS
