Please see our Covid update.
One representative from each accepted agency will have FREE entry to the Workshop with FREE accommodation and meals at the venue. Your delegate package will include free entry to the drinks reception and dinner on the first evening, breakfast, lunch and dinner on the second day, and breakfast and lunch on the third day. Complimentary wine is provided with dinners. Free refreshments are also available during the Workshop. If you require accommodation for additional nights at the venue or Workshop places for additional members of staff you will be required to pay for these. Prices are available upon request.
UK based agents may be offered the full delegate package, depending on their location. Local UK agents are offered a FREE day delegate package with lunch, refreshments and entry to the two days of Workshop meetings.
You will have the opportunity to meet senior representatives from top quality independent British boarding schools, international study centres and sixth-form colleges. There are usually 90 schools from all over the UK with a range of types of schools including co-educational, single-sex, preparatory (junior) and senior. We normally have at least 3 guardianship companies at each event.
Schools/exhibitors and agents are required to pre-book appointments via our Electronic Appointment System (EASy). Profiles of the participating schools and exhibitors are made available on our members' portal. 20 minute meetings allow agents to find out more about each school/company and meet new and existing partners face-to-face. Being able to meet in person provides the opportunity to develop long-term partnerships based on mutual trust and understanding, which is critical given the differences in nationalities and cultural backgrounds.
Each agent has a profile with a photograph of their representative(s), which is available to all attendees on our online portal.
This event enables you to target independent British boarding schools, international study centres, sixth-form colleges, summer school providers, guardianship companies and a small number of companies offering services which are relevant to our sector. They are all seeking to meet with top quality educational consultants.
Agents are encouraged to visit the schools after the Workshop in order to maximise their visit to the UK. Post-Workshop fam trips (familiarisation visits) are organised and sponsored by groups of host schools. There are usually three fam trips in different location of the UK, each visiting 5-6 schools over 3 days with places for around 15 agents. Details of the trips are sent to all the agents who are offered places at the Workshop.
