Teacher mentor programme

Every year, thousands of international students travel to the UK to continue their education. But for a young student it can be pretty scary to be in a new country all alone – especially when English isn’t their native language.

Our Teacher Mentor programme is great for both students and teachers. Students are given the chance to settle into the UK with ease while also receiving extra English tuition – and a companion to explore the UK with. Teachers get to play a significant role in a student’s education, and get a glimpse into a new culture as they learn from their student too.

Working with students aged between 12 – 17, you’ll become their trusted guide as you help mould their futures and immerse the students in UK culture. You’ll make a real connection with students you mentor and watch them grow as you help them develop new skills and confidence in not only their education – but their lives too.

What do Teacher Mentors need to do?

As a Teacher Mentor you’ll welcome a student into your home with full board accommodation, and you’ll work closely with the student to improve their English language skills with dedicated daily tuition. But that’s not all. You’ll help the student get the most out of UK life by enjoying trips to top London sights and attractions with them. At the end of the programme, you’ll be asked to provide an overall report on their time with you and give educational and cultural recommendations for the student’s future.

To be a Teacher Mentor, all you need is to:

  • Be qualified in teaching English as a foreign language or have teaching experience
  • Have a private, fully furnished room available in your home
  • Be able to provide 2 hours of English tuition per day to the student
  • Complete a DBS check
  • Want to make a difference to the life of a young student
