Kate Hargreaves, Principal of Living Learning English talks to us about quality LLE Guardianships

As Living Learning English celebrates 25 years of high quality educational guardianship services, we are taking this opportunity to learn more from Kate Hargreaves, Principal and Owner of Living Learning English.

Tell us more about the Guardianship Service you offer international students
LLE Guardianship was set up in 1995 and offers a complete Educational Guardianship Service which complements our English language course provision providing support, care, tuition, travel and accommodation for international students studying at boarding schools in the UK.

And what makes LLE Guardianships special?
Unique to LLE Guardianship is the fact that all host families are also teachers for LLE. This ensures that our teacher-hosts are fully trained and experienced in supporting students who are a long way from home, both academically and pastorally.

What safety standards to you follow?
LLE is committed to safeguarding the welfare of every Young Learner in its care and has been approved for AEGIS Gold Standard Accreditation - the most prestigious accolade that a guardianship organisation can hold and signifies the highest standards of safeguarding and care in the guardianship of international students.

LLE Guardianship is also a member of the Safe Schools initiative set up to allow schools to quickly and clearly communicate to students, parents and their communities the safety measures that will be in place when students return to school after COVID-19.

And how will you be celebrating your 25th Anniversary?
Well, we are delighted that Living Learning English has been nominated as a finalist in the Guardianship Organisation category of the  Study Travel Secondary School Awards 2020. Look out for the results in October!  When travel restrictions are lifted hopefully later in the year, we will be celebrating in style with the LLE Team and partners.
