How to manage your homestay accommodation: training for UK ELT providers
15 October 2018

Many English language students stay with local hosts who provide a 'home-from-home' and immersion in the English language during their stay. It gives students the opportunity to live with local people and experience life in a UK home, and provides income and a rewarding cultural exchange for many UK residents.

This workshop for UK ELT providers aims to share best practice on managing homestay accommodation. Diane Phillips will cover the most up-to-date information on all aspects of managing your homestay providers. 

Participants will discuss how they can:

  • Find and assess accommodation
  • Write guidelines for accommodation providers
  • Monitor and maintain suitable accommodation
  • Discard unsuitable accommodation
  • Fulfill their duty of care to all students – adults and under-18s.

Who is it for?

Summer centre managers, student services staff and accommodation managers.
