Don’t miss out on this FREE no obligation offer – we don’t take any payment details, so you won’t have to remember to cancel your membership if you choose not to stay with Voice once you’ve qualified. But as a student member, you will receive access to our Newly Qualified special offer rate should you choose to remain with Voice.


Student Membership is available to anyone studying a full-time vocational qualification in education or early years within the UK. Available to students 18 years or older for the duration of their studies. FREE membership ONLY covers students for course related or mandated work placements. Students are not covered for paid or voluntary work they undertake in addition to that which their course mandates/requires. Students can upgrade to a paid membership that will cover them for all paid and placement work should they chose. If your course requires you to be employed within early years or education as an entry requirement, you are eligible for the FREE student membership, but you will be required to offer evidence of this requirement.
