Bright World’s commitment to safeguarding children, who are under our care…

 

"Bright World is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.”

Unlike many other guardianship organisations, we are fully accredited by AEGIS (Association for the Education and Guardianship of International Students). This means our practices and processes have been thoroughly inspected and audited by this important organisation and we can therefore guarantee that we will act in your child’s best interest at all times.

Bright World also works closely with TravelSafe International, a charity devoted to the welfare of international students studying abroad away from their parents.

We are working extremely hard in order to further improve our training in child protection. You can view our Child Protection Policy & Procedure on this page and will soon be able to view our planned training programme here also. This will ensure that all Bright World staff are fully qualified in this field.

Child Protection and Safeguarding

Safeguarding is the protection of children from maltreatment and preventing the impairment of children’s health/development.

Bright World ensures that whilst studying overseas, children continue to grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care.

Undertaking that role, so as to enable those children to have optimum life chances and to enter adulthood successfully”
Working together to safeguard children (HM Government 2015)

Child Protection is a part of safeguarding and promoting welfare to protect specific children, who are suffering or are at risk of suffering significant harm.”

Why should Bright World have safeguards in place?

By making sure that Bright World has the correct policies in place, we are honouring our responsibility as Guardians to protect our students during their time in the UK.

This is why we are tailoring Government policies and procedures, to reflect the uniquenesss of Bright World as an organisation and the role in which we play in the development of our international students; whether they are just placed in schools, by our Admissions department or whether they choose to enrol as a Bright World Guardianship student.

In both cases we take responsibility and aim to continue to improve and develop our safeguarding and child protection procedures. You will be able to read these shortly on this page, or if you are a parent of one of our students, you will be also able to read this information on Blink - The new parent portal.
