Yesterday our hosts became the students and attended our Homestay Safeguarding Training Session! We had a really interesting presentation by Nigel Paramor, Principal and School DSL as well as a comprehensive Q&A. It was great to see how much our hosts care for our younger students.
Richard was In Udine recently at an event organised by Destinazione Lingue. He is pictured here with Valentina the winner of a 2-week scholarship at English in Chester. Valentina will be studying on our General English course later this year.
Richard (Director of English in Chester) at the QE Workshop in Trieste with Phil Hopkins (ELC Brighton & Eastbourne), Fiona Dunlop (Wimbledon School of English) and Andrew Edwards (ELC Bristol). The event was organised by Quality English and enabled members to meet agents from Italy, Slovenia, Ukraine, Croatia and Serbia. Everyone then went on to Udine where Destinazione Lingue organised a full programme. Events included CPD sessions for Italian teachers and a very busy B2C afternoon session which enabled schools to meet and talk with people interested in taking an English language course in the UK.
Yesterday we held our 2019 Homestay Hosts Event at The Garret Bar, StoryHouse. It was a lovely opportunity to get together with some of our Homestay Hosts and say Thank You for their amazing work!
Last week we held fire training for key staff at the school. Key teachers and fire marshals were reminded of what to do in the event of a fire evacuation and practised using the fire extinguishers.
