BSA Certified Agent Scheme

About the scheme

The Boarding Schools’ Association (BSA) champions boarding and promotes boarding excellence. The BSA is the largest association of boarding schools in the world and represents more than 600 independent and state boarding schools, over 500 of which are based in the UK.

The BSA and our member schools are looking to work with the best, top-quality education agents and consultants around the world and our Certified Agent Scheme is a mark of professional quality for education consultants and agents.

This training and certification programme provides unrivalled assurance to BSA boarding schools that they are dealing with the top-class consultants and agents who have the highest standards in recruitment, safeguarding and student placement.
