Young learners arrive for an unforgettable summer in the UK


The UK’s summer schools are excited to welcome international young learners back to their centres for summer 2022.

Young learners will build confidence communicating in English and make new friends from around the world. What better way is there to spend a summer?

As English language classes and activity programmes commence, let’s see what young learner students have been up to so far…

A safe and supported experience in the UK for under 18s

The UK is a world leader in safeguarding young learners. Language centres ensure that young learners are supervised by trained staff at all times during their stay in the UK: in the classroom, at their accommodation, during organised activities, and during the students’ free time.

When language centres are accredited by the British Council for the teaching of English they are inspected to ensure they have robust safeguarding procedures to ensure the wellbeing and protection of all children and teenagers under 18 years old.
