Star Awards 2017 OMG we have been shortlisted!


We are now allowed to tell everybody that we have been shortlisted in the TOP FIVE in a BRAND-NEW category at the 12th Study Travel Awards: ST Star Service Provider. 

This is very exciting news as it will be the first year that Guardianship Organisations are included in the list of possible nominees.

Up for the ST Star Service Provider, we are extremely proud to be considered in this category and are even prouder to see guardianship recognised in such a large industry arena.

The prestigious ceremony takes place during the ST Alphe Conference in September this year and acknowledges achievement across the whole study travel industry, asking educators and agents worldwide to vote for the company who deserve the award most for excellent business performance.

Will we be the first Guardianship Organisation EVER to be a winner?

The award for the ST Star Service Provider finally offers guardianship a rare moment in the spotlight.

“We are so excited and proud to be in the top five Service Providers and therefore up for an award. That is almost enough to make us realise how much our partners appreciate all the hard work our team does. If we win, of course, this will be an amazing bonus and we will be so proud and thankful to all our supporters.” James Foster, Commercial Director.


What are the StudyTravel Star Awards?

The ST Star Awards have honoured top class performance across the Study Travel Industry for 11 years and are the awards that those working in the Study Travel industry want to win, and want to be associated with. These awards showcase top-class performance, reward achievement and raise standards across the industry.

The winners of each award category are revealed at the glamorous ceremony, held on the second evening of ST Alphe UK at the London Hilton on Park Lane. Attended by over 860 guests, the awards feature a networking reception, gourmet meal, followed by the winners’ presentations on stage and dancing to round off the spectacular evening.

We wont know if we have won until the 2nd September but we have caught Lana and Charlotte surfing the internet for new evening dresses on several occasions so we think they are hopeful...
