Safeguarding and Pastoral Care
The safety and security of our Young Learner students is our highest priority.
Our comprehensive Safeguarding Policy outlines how recruit, visit, train and observe our host tutors and their families to make sure that all Young Learners are warmly welcomed and cared for throughout their course.
Students are collected at the airport on arrival and comprehensively looked after – both during lessons and excursions, and during free time – from the moment they first arrive at their host tutor’s home.

If you are an EU / EEA national, you should apply for a European Health Insurance Card before leaving home and bring it with you when you travel to the UK. It guarantees that you will be provided with emergency healthcare treatment free of charge.
Nationals or residents of countries which have reciprocal health care agreements with the UK are also exempt from charges. As of January 2016, the following countries have reciprocal agreements in place:
- Bosnia and Herzegovina
- British Virgin Islands
- Falkland Islands
- New Zealand
- St Helena
- Turks and Caicos Islands
Exemption from charges applies only to treatment needed during the visit. It is still necessary to take out appropriate travel insurance before your course.
