Membership Levels

There are two levels of membership:

  • Associate Membership: is open to schools, colleges, further and higher educational establishments and educational guardianship organisations  all of whom are commited to the promotion and delivery of high standards of educational guardianship for international students. Associate Membership is also appropriate for those individual practitioners and bodies with a vested interest in educational guardianship.


  • Validated Membership: Organisations with current validation to full QegUK methodology, and with a direct educational guardianship responsibility, qualify for Validated Membership status.
