COMMITMENT TO STUDENT CARE


We place the highest priority on the welfare and  safety of our students and provide a high standard of care and supervision. Each of our centres has a  nominated person responsible for welfare and we provide guardians for our individual students to ensure they are happy and well-cared for. We have well established links with local doctors, dentists and hospitals for any medical  issues that may arise.

We provide dedicated support for our students throughout their stay, including a full induction and orientation on arrival, where all students are issued with identity cards which contain our emergency telephone details. We operate a 24 hour emergency telephone service across all of our centres.

  • Students are given an ID card which includes important telephone numbers
  • Students are supervised in residence by staff at all times
  • Students under the age of 18 are not permitted to leave the centre unaccompanied at any time
  • All students under the age of 18 should be aware that it is compulsory to attend all lessons and activities
