Why should you attend?

With the continued growth in numbers of pupils from overseas in UK-based schools and colleges, the topic of guardianship is becoming more and more important. The current lack of clarity in the regulations governing guardianship and safeguarding provisions for international students leaves young people, and their schools, in a vulnerable position.
