Student safety

At Bucksmore Homelingua student safety is our number one priority. We invest a large amount of time and resources in making sure our students have a safe, enjoyable and rewarding time with their home tuition teacher.

 

9 steps that we take to make sure our students are safe

  1. All staff, teachers and car transfer drivers are fully police background checked.
  2. Only 10% of teacher applications pass the high standards required of our application process.
  3. Before becoming a Bucksmore Homelingua teacher, we inspect the teacher’s house and documentations. This is done by a member of the Bucksmore Homelingua head office team. We do not use third parties to inspect our teachers.
  4. Our teachers are regularly observed by the Director of Studies to make sure our high academic standards are being met.
  5. Bucksmore Homelingua is accredited by the British Council for the quality of its management, academics and teaching. This means you can be assured that your child will be studying on a quality course with high standards.
  6. Students under 18 must use Bucksmore Homelingua approved car transfer service from the airport or Eurostar train station to the teacher’s house. Students will be accompanied by an adult at all times. Our fully qualified drivers will handover your child to the airline or Eurostar staff. We strongly recommend booking an Unaccompanied Minor (UM) service.
  7. Whilst on a Bucksmore Homelingua course, your child will be fully supervised by the teacher 24 hours a day.
  8. Bucksmore Homelingua operates a 24 hour emergency phone line.
  9. Your child is fully insured with our specialist student insurance provider.
