Will my profile be visible to other schools?
No. Your profile is searchable and visible to our member agents only. The aim is to provide transparency so they can access the facts, figures and details about your school that are not available on your public website but which they need to consider the right schoosl for each family.
What does an ‘Approved’ member agent mean?
All the agents with whom we work are carefully selected, interviewed and triple reference-checked to ensure they are the right match for UK boarding schools. After going through this rigourous process, agents are given membership of the British Boarding Schools' Network and they can attend the British Boarding Schools' Workshop and networking days.
The quality of the agents underpins the success of our business over the last 15 years. We continue to expand the network of agents and all agents go through the same rigorous process.
Do you monitor agents?
Yes. We invite member schools to give us feedback if they experience a problem with an agent. Agents have a code of conduct to adhere to. We want to enhance standards in our sector.
How can I find agents on the database?
You can search in a variety of ways such as by country they are located in, countries they recruit from, number of pupils placed, and educational programmes of interest. You can then view detailed profiles about the company and its staff.
How can I send messages to the agents?
You can send a message to all of the agents or to targeted groups. For example, you can inform agents in target countries that you have vacancies in certain year groups or update them about news. The benefit is that you can target messages to different groups of agents. in some cases it is appropriate to send a message to all agents on the system, for example, if your school has a new Head or has opened a new facility. In this case you can post a message and it immediately gets sent out to all agents via a notification in their email box.
