1What is Global Schools Forum?
Global Schools Forum is an independent, not for profit membership organisation for pre-primary, primary and secondary school operators.
  • The vision of Global Schools Forum is a world where all children have access to quality education.
  • Our mission is to raise learning outcomes, expand equitable access and increase transparency in the education sector by supporting and representing non-state schools and school networks serving low and middle income families in developing countries.
  • We aim to do this by building and strengthening the non-state education sector through increased collaboration among operators, targeted expertise, influencing policy narrative, and building greater transparency.

4How do I register to become a member of GSF?
All you need to do is visit our Join us page and follow the process there. This will involve completing a short Expression of Interest form about your school, school network or organisation. Once we have received this we will call you to get to know you and discuss membership options. Finally, you will be invited to complete our membership form and sign our member agreement. Once we receive this, you will be able to access all our member services.
5How much does it cost to become a member?
Until September 2019 membership is free as we develop our products and services in line with the needs of our members. When we introduce membership fees, all members will be informed 6 months in advance and given the opportunity to choose to continue as members of Global Schools Forum.
6If I sign up now will I be charged later?
No. Membership is free. However, we will be introducing membership fees in 2019. Members will be informed of this 6 months in advance and given the opportunity to choose to continue their membership with us.
7If I have a question who do I call?
If you are a member, you can contact any member of our team directly through the collaboration platform. If you are not a member, the best way to get in touch is via info@globalschoolsforum.org and one of our team will get back to you.
8Can I become a member?
If you lead or run a non-state school or school network working in a low or middle income country focusing on providing affordable, quality education you can apply for membership.

If you are an organisation working within the education sector and working with non-state affordable schools, do get in touch and let us know how our members can benefit from your services and how you would benefit from joining GSF. We have an Associate Membership option that might be suitable for you.
9Can my team also benefit from the membership?
Membership is for an organisation’s senior leaders. The resources, support and opportunities we provide are targeted at your senior team and therefore we would encourage the membership to be used by the entire senior team.
