About the Worshipful Company of Educators
The Worshipful Company of Educators is the 109th Livery Company to be granted this status by the City of London. 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. 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.
