As a provider of British Council accredited courses in the UK, it is LSC’s mission to promote the standard and quality of experience for students, making sure that our students experience the best lessons, activities and excursions in a safe and supervised environment.

The well-being, safety and welfare of young people who study with us is our first priority and is vital in ensuring they have a happy, wonderful experience and feel supported. We adopt clear policies for the welfare of all students and these standards apply to all staff and host families who care for young people.

Child safeguarding forms an integral part of staff training. All our staff, including London Head Office senior management team, teachers, activity leaders and host families undertake DBS security checks (or similar police checks if they come or have travelled from outside the UK) prior to employment. In addition to this, all of our host families are thoroughly interviewed and have their accommodation carefully checked before hosting students.

Our highly motivated senior management team have experience in the delivery of educational tours for young people from all across the world.

Our commitment to safeguarding is outlined in detail in the Language Study Centres Safeguarding Policy.
