These interactive, project based lessons are designed to promote teamwork, collaboration and self-awareness through carefully designed activities. The students explore and improve areas in critical thinking, communication, negotiation, problem solving, debating and more; through case studies, research projects, team building activities and reflective thinking lessons.

What is safeguarding?

It is a set of policies and procedures to ensure that students aged under 18 are always kept safe and out of harm.

In the UK, safeguarding includes:

DBS: This is a system where all adults who have contact with children undergo a criminal background check.

Staff ratios: Every activity is assessed to ensure that there is enough adult supervision to guarantee the safety of the children which may vary according to the age of the students.

Risk assessments: All aspects of our junior programmes undergo an annual health and safety check. We look at all aspects of our courses including the buildings, outside space, fire procedures, safety and the way their activities and trips are organised and run, unsupervised out of class time, external venues attended by their students etc.

Policies: BLC International has its own carefully devised guidelines which parents can access here and are welcome to ask to see these if they are wish on site or via email.

Training: BLC International regularly trains our staff with regards to safeguarding and health & safety to ensure safety and best practice.

E-Safety: Under British law all organisations working with children must have filters to protect children from inappropriate online material and teach students what to do if they are worried about the content or online requests.

How to contact the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL)

Jamie Gray is our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) at Brighton Language College International.

The role of the DSL was specified in the Children Act 2004. Our DSL has a responsibility at both a strategic level within the organisation and on a day to day basis.  All students are introduced to Jamie on Day 1 and given contact details when booking the course.  All staff and homestay providers also have this information.

Please note that the Sunday Coach Service is a shared service with other students running between the airports and Brighton and students may be required to wait at the airport when arriving to or leaving the UK. Transfers will be organised to coincide with the student’s departure time (at least 2 hours before flight departure). Students wishing an earlier coach to arrive must notify the school in advance.

BLC is not liable for any missed flights due to traffic or other issues beyond our control, it is always advisable to arrive as early as possible to ensure no problems.

Students must book their place and provide full flight details 20 days before the course starts at the very latest, or we will not be able to guarantee a space on the coach and a private taxi will be required.

If you are arriving at another airport you will need to use our private taxi service.



Certain airlines have strict rules for students under the age of 16 travelling alone, and may require an adult to be present during the check-in and until the flight has departed. Please check your airline’s requirements when booking your flight. BLC cannot guarantee a staff member to be present unless a check-in service was booked by you.

If you would like our staff to wait, please tick the box on our Junior Summer Courses application form. There is an additional £50 fee for this service.

Homestay students using the Sunday Coach Service will be accompanied to Brighton by our staff and met by the families.

BLC International is open on Sundays (08:30 – 18:00) on Spring & Summer coach transfer days, please contact the school on the day in case of any transfer problems and we will help.

If you are arriving at another airport you will need to use our private taxi service.
