the highest accreditation standard available for UK guardianships

Bright World Guardianships AEGIS certificate

Gold standard accreditation is the highest possible standard achievable in guardianship in the UK. UK Boarding Schools are satisfied with the assurance that comes with this, and many now strongly recommend that any guardian appointed be accredited by AEGIS to Gold standard.

This independent mark of approval reassures all involved that the guardian organisation appointed has passed a thorough inspection and is operating professionally and following a strict safeguarding framework. There are a total of 11 standard categories and within these standards are 196 criteria.

The 11 main areas covered are;

  1. Company aims, principles and practice
  2. Management of the guardianship organisation
  3. Pre-Arrival Support
  4. Student Induction
  5. Travel Arrangements
  6. Homestays
  7. Student Folder
  8. Safeguarding, Child Protection & Welfare
  9. Complaints
  10. Day Schools & Private Fostering
  11. Liaison with Partner Schools

An Authority on the Covid requirements in different countries

The Directors have become very much an authority on the Covid requirements in different countries and have been sharing their knowledge with others in the sector. This is typical of the focus of this guardian organisation – to be a specialist specifically as a guardian rather than diversifying into other aspects of the educational sphere.
