Helpful information

  • If anybody needs to contact the Clerk, who is working from home, the best and preferred form of communication is by email. As the Clerk works for the Company 4 days each week, sometimes responses may take a little longer than at other times. Please email clerk@co-educators.com or use Social media (where applicable) for any issues or concerns you may have.
  • Could you please email the Clerk on clerk@co-educators.com to let him know if you are interested in any particular Special Interest Groups (SIGs). When there are online meetings planned, he can add you to each one.  For example: ‘Please add me to the SIG SEND and SIG Military Groups Channels on Teams’. You can then be assigned to your nominated group or groups in case they arrange an online seminar.

The Worshipful Company of Educators is the 109th Livery Company to be granted this status by the City of London. It was founded in 2001 within the philanthropic tradition of the City of London livery companies. It provides a forum through meetings and social occasions to bring together members from all parts of the education world to discuss and exchange views on matters of topical interest. The Company also operates a charitable fund to support individuals and projects that develop the process of learning and its management, encouraging and rewarding those individuals through appropriate grants, awards and medals.

In pursuit of these aims, the Company is inclusive in its membership and activities, transcending the traditional boundaries between the different sectors, and particularly between academe and business insofar as the latter concerns itself with education, training, and development. It believes that it is unique in providing this cross-sector forum. Furthermore, “Education” is lifelong learning – from cradle to grave – a dynamic process needing investment of money, time, energy and enthusiasm.
