In our opinion, these are our Unique Selling Points:
Centre Age Ranges
Instead of having wide age ranges to accommodate as many students as possible at our centres, we believe that students have a better academic and social experience if the age range is smaller.
Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL)
We have incorporated true CLIL teaching into some of our academic programmes, where students progress in English through studying a range stimulating subjects such as ecology, technology, space exploration and science.
We offer absolutley free airport transfers on standard arrival and departure days at any time of the day, even very early in the morning or very late at night.
To provide an outstanding personalised pastoral care service, we have some of the highest staff-to-student ratios in the industry, ranging from 1:3 at our very young centres to 1:5 at our older centres.
At Bede's, we employ a dedicated Welfare Manager at all centres that accommodate Under 16s, whose sole responsibility is to ensure students' physical and emotional well-being.
Head of Nursing
We employ a Head of Nursing to make sure that high standards of nursing are maintained at all our centres and to provide an internal out-of-hours response service to our welfare staff.
Staff Working Conditions
We believe that we offer our seasonal staff a good salary; in return, we demand very high standards from them in every aspect of their work.
Teachers' Preparation Time
Bede's teachers are allocated time on a daily basis to carefully design and plan their lessons to the students' English levels for maximum development.
