Safeguarding students around the world, around the clock

Guardianship is a service Gateway Education offers which involves safeguarding students while they are abroad for extended periods of study. It is vitally important that young students have an appointed and trusted guardian to ensure their academic, pastoral and welfare needs are supported and catered for. This is what the Gateway Guardianship package does.
