Welcome to Our Website

If you are visiting for the first time, we hope you find it useful.  The Society exists to meet the professional development needs of education consultants and to help those looking for an education consultant find exactly the right person to meet their needs. Both strands of our work are underpinned by the SEC Professional Standards via the Code of Practice.



SEC Quality Assurance


The Society of Education Consultants have a high level of expectation from all our members to uphold and reflect the Code of Practice to which they signed up to acknowledge in their application to SEC.  Each member must demonstrate a professional commitment to a high quality service to clients and must utilise the processes that offer secure, verifiable feedback linked to an agreed professional Code of Practice.

The Society of Education Consultants expects that all its members have the facility, support and expertise to meet the increasingly high expectations placed on education professionals.  SEC Core Principles specify a commitment to maintaining high standards of personal conduct and integrity and advancing the professional standards of education consultancy and the Society of Educational Consultants expects that outstanding service of all its members.
