English UK produces a range of reports and guidance documents to help our members deliver an excellent experience for international students learning English in the UK. We have provided resources for maintaining wellbeing and assisting in achieving best practice in welfare.
The English UK welfare manual is a guide to help members deliver best practice in student welfare, accommodation and safeguarding under 18s.
Mental health resources
English UK wants to ensure that your centre has the resources and capabilities to stop problems from escalating if you are faced with a student or staff member with a mental health issue. We aim to create an atmosphere for our members in which their students can thrive and all staff know how to act with empathy and best practice in seemingly difficult situations. Our objective is to ensure students, teachers and other staff members can be open and honest about mental health issues and keep everyone safe.
We have researched and compiled resources from organisations that are able to help, including a short explanation for the usefulness of each resource. Read more +
