With Twin, parents and agents can be sure that we provide high standards of care and supervision at all times. We provide a compulsory chaperone service for individual students (Group Leaders accompany their own students) in homestay centres (please contact us for more information).
Please see below for any frequently asked questions related to supervision and care.
What happens when students arrive in the UK?
We provide a meet & greet service for all students arriving at the airport for both group tours (where we will meet the group leader) and individuals. If minors are unaccompanied, individual transfers are organised to and from the airport.
Who supervises the students?
The wellbeing, safety and welfare of the students in our care is our number one concern. A member of staff will be on call overnight, should they be needed, to ensure that students feel safe during their stay. Telephones are available at each of our schools so that students can contact parents/carers at home in case of an emergency.
Group Leaders will supervise their own students during break times, free time, on journeys to/from school (homestay only), airport transfers, and if they decide to opt-out of the pre-arranged social programme.
Are the students allowed to leave the premises in their free time?
Students are not allowed to leave the centre without a responsible adult. If a student wants to leave the site with an adult relative or family friend, their parent or guardian must provide Twin with a letter of consent.
What happens if my child gets lost?
All students are given student cards with an emergency contact number so that they can reach a member of the Twin welfare staff 24/7 who will be able to help. Alternatively, they should go to a uniformed police officer and ask for help.
