English @ Work Programme

This unique package can be created for either 2*, 3 or 4 weeks of language immersion, combining targeted English tuition with work experience in the United Kingdom. By attending this classic mix of study and work experience, (more commonly known as a ‘Stage’) you can gain credits for school by  improving language skills in the classroom, and then putting these into practice in real operational environments during the working week. Work placement can be arranged across various industries, most commonly Hospitality, to suit the individual or group. Students are mentored by industry professionals and work placement hours can be used towards high school or university certificates.

All of our immersion programmes include one week, (15 hours, Monday – Friday) of General English language classes plus an optional 5 hours of vocational English communication. All language skills will be covered to include speaking, listening, reading and writing.

This programme is ideal for adventurous students wanting to improve their English and acquire workplace skills for the future.

The placement will be local to the accommodation and will be based on a full-time schedule. The minimum placement will be for one week and will follow the week of language study.

Students should be at least 16 years old and should hold a minimum language level of A2. Cultural and social activities will be available during the language week, (and beyond if the placement allows).

Accommodation is included in the price on a single room, half-board basis and will be organised in local host families.
