Lessons are fun and interactive with a high level of student involvement as each class has a maximum of 15 students.

Student Welfare

Students’ safety and comfort are our priority For both residential and homestay students we place the highest priority on providing an exceptional standard of care and supervision to ensure the welfare and safety of our Young Learners. Our team are always present to ensure our students have a safe, happy and enjoyable time and each centre has a qualified first-aider on-site. Close Supervision In accordance with British Council guidelines and our own welfare policies, all residential students are supervised at all times and students are not permitted to leave the centre without a member of our staff or group leader, and without prior permission. Those in homestay accommodation will travel by public transport and our team or the group leader will assist and accompany students where possible. After evening activities, students will travel in small groups in pre-ordered taxis back home.

Buddy system At our residential centres, each team member is directly responsible for the welfare and happiness of their buddy group. They check that group-led students and especially individual students are eating properly, looking after personal hygiene, keeping their rooms tidy, and also account for them at roll call and during fire alarms.

COVID-19 and booking with BSC We’ve introduced prevention and control measures across all of our Young Learner Centres.

Trained team members All centre managers are trained to minimum Safeguarding Level 2 24-hour emergency contact phone numbers at all centres
