It is very important to us that you feel safe when you are at one of ILC locations. Our Student Services team, and all our other staff are very friendly and helpful. You will meet them on the first day and you can talk to them at any time about the following things:
The Student Services Team take particular responsibility for welfare issues, but all staff are prepared to step in if a problem arises.
ILC follows the guidance and good practice notes provided by the British Council in its advice for caring for students under 18.
ILC takes its responsibility to safeguarding children very seriously. We will ensure we provide a safe and supportive environment for all our learners, and implement procedures for identifying and reporting cases, or suspected cases, of harm or abuse. All staff have completed a Safeguarding course. Please read our policies by clicking below:Safeguarding Policy and Child Protection ProcedureOur Abusive Behaviour Policy and Procedure
If there is anything you are not sure about, please contact us. The vast majority of students aged under 18 come to ILC in a group from their school with at least one leader. There are separate guidelines for Group Leaders to manage the group and to help them to assist staff at ILC. Group leaders have to accompany students on all excursions and all afternoon and evening group activities.
