Regent Guardians is run by Helen Collier; a parent who understands the importance of nurture and care for children of all ages.
Combined with exceptional qualifications, Helen has more than 20 years’ experience in international education, having held senior positions in boarding schools in East Africa and across the UK until 2017.
Helen then branched out into Guardianship having gained a clear appreciation of the scale and type of care and support needed by international boarding students, their parents, schools and colleges.
Helen is highly experienced and appropriately trained in safeguarding matters and is the Designated Safeguarding Lead for Regent Guardians.
Caroline has worked in international education for 30 years. As Caroline Nixon Education Ltd., she helps UK schools to establish new overseas branches and advises on all aspects of provision for international students.
Caroline is also International Director, BSA (Boarding Schools’ Association) and Director, BAISIS (British Association of Independent Schools with International Students) and a member of the advisory group of the UK All Party Parliamentary Group on international students.
As Education Consultant to Regent Guardians, Caroline works in an advisory capacity, retaining her independence, but supports students, parents and schools if Helen is unavailable.
It is undeniable that my daughter’s life in school is very happy, and she has repeatedly told us happily that she trusts and likes you and we also trust you. The meeting with you at the opening ceremony made me feel very lucky I have also introduced Regent Guardians to my friends many times.
Regent Guardians gives me more than help and warmth throughout my first year in Cardiff. Helen really plays a role of my mum in UK, she is warm-hearted and always ready to help me solve my problems.
