Accreditations and Memberships
Association for the Education and Guardianship of International Students (AEGIS) is an independent organisation who inspect and accredit guardianship organisations in the UK that are able to reach and maintain a very high level of care.
To become members of the association WHG was inspected by government trained schools inspectors (OFSTED), who investigated all our methods and took 24 random references from schools, parents, students, agents etc.
To maintain our membership and accreditation, inspectors are able to make unscheduled visits to the WHG head office or Local Guardians and request documents for inspection. In addition, we must submit a yearly report to AEGIS.
All of our Local Guardians, Head Office Staff and Directors are trained to level 2 in safeguarding children. Our two designated child protection officers are trained to level 3.
