BBSW Events for the Academic Year 2021 - 2022

After much consideration it will not be possible for us to run the British Boarding Schools’ Workshop (BBSW) in November 2021 as a live event.  Whilst the UK is making good progress with the roadmap out of restrictions and with the vaccination programme, there is uncertainty about what the quarantine requirements will be for inbound travellers in November and those coming to the UK for a three-day event would not want to quarantine should this be required. 

In addition, the hotel venue we use for the Workshops would like us to commit now to a signed contract, which is a huge financial commitment should the event not be able to run, or if delegates do not feel safe enough to commit to attending a large live event. 

The BBSW virtual events we have run this academic year have worked very well, and many people have requested that they continue in some format in the future. Given that many people will not be travelling as they normally would over the coming months, BBSN can play a vital role in keeping our community connected and in regular communication. 

BBSW Virtual Events

Events will be held on: 

Wednesday 13th to Thursday 14th October 2021 

Wednesday 24th to Thursday 25th November 2021 

Given that most people will not be travelling to the extent they normally would in the Autumn Term, we will be offering two BBSW Virtual events in October and November to enable us to accommodate many schools, agents, guardianships and service suppliers, so that we can support you during this key recruitment period. You are welcome to book for one or both events. There will be a wide range of recruitment markets represented by our network of quality agents at both Workshops, as well as schools from all across the UK.  You can choose if your company would like to arrange meetings with either schools or agents. 

For each of the events there will be 50 appointments over the two days (25 per day) and appointments will run from 7.45am to 6pm UK time to allow you to speak to agents in different time zones (where applicable). You can block out times when you are not free to create your own bespoke schedule.
