Our Managing Director, Lana Foster is always very keen to talk! She is also always very keen to have the opportunity of promoting the importance of good guardianship to anyone who is involved with international students in UK boarding schools in the UK.
Lana & James Foster - James is always very supportive to Lana and helped to calm her nerves before she took to the stage
She was therefore delighted to be invited along to talk to the delegates at this year's BAISC conference in Birmingham on 8th October. The BAISC is the British Association of International Study Centres and BAISC members are committed to:
successfully integrating international students into mainstream education and helping international students achieve high academic standards, providing the best pastoral care possible to international students and valuing the contribution made by international students to their institutions.
The conference was attended by over 40 school professionals, Heads, teachers and boarding staff from schools all around the UK.
Lana's presentation was entitled ' The importance of a good guardian' and lasted around one hour.
We hope that it helped to promote the good name of AEGIS, our accreditation body and helped the schools understand more about what we do and how we work. All this is to make sure our international wards are kept safe, sound and happy while they are in the UK.
"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."
The number of UK Boarding Schools and important Industry Associations attending our Company Conference last week was testament to how highly thought of Bright World Guardianships is. We have had some wonderful feedback at how impressed our guests were with the amount we invest in Child Protection and Safeguarding. It is so important to bring the whole company together once each year to share experiences and obtain important Child Protection Training. I believe it really sets Bright World apart and enables us to strive to be the best in UK guardianship' Lana Foster, Bright World Managing Director
The Bright World Company Conference 2018 was a resounding success. So many of our close partner schools and agents took the time to join us. We all came away feeling very positive about the Guardianship industry and the work that schools and Bright World do together to keep children safe.
