Adult Courses for Students under 18 years old
The welfare and care of our students is our upmost priority here at Loxdale. Most of the students on our adult courses are aged over 18 but we do also welcome students aged 16 and 17.
Loxdale English Centre provides as safe and welcoming learning environment for all our students. However, we have a special responsibility for students aged 16 and 17 year olds and vulnerable adults.
In the eyes of British law, 16 and 17 year olds are children and there are various laws and conditions to ensure that they are protected whilst in the UK.
The main aspects that parents should be aware of are:
You will need to fill in the Parent Activity Form so that we can see your wishes for which activities your son or daughter can take part in their free time. Issues to note or to think about are:
Loxdale English Centre will talk to your son/daughter on arrival and go through the policies we have so they know what rules we have. We will also inform their host family of what has been agreed.
If there is a problem with the student breaking any major rules or regularly not following the agreed terms, we will contact you so that you know and to discuss a solution.
Please do look at some of our Welfare and Care – safeguarding policies:
If your child has any questions or ideas, they can meet us informally whenever they want. He/she will also meet us on a normal basis once a week to go through progress and any issues affecting them.
