Covid-19

We will follow UK Government guidance with regard to safety measures in the classroom. The maximum student number in class will be reduced to 8, we will implement safe-distancing, staggered break times, regular thorough cleaning, hand sanitiser will be provided, classrooms will be well ventilated. 

Our homestay hosts will provide a safe, comfortable and friendly place to stay.  If you, or a member of your homestay family, becomes ill, you will self-isolate together.

Our social programme has been adjusted so that we only do things that are Covid-safe. As a result we are unable to offer our traditional programme. As restrictions ease, we will develop the programme to provide a fuller experience.

Please see our Covid-19 Re-opening Guidelines listed under our policies and please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Coming to the UK: What do you have to do?

Some of our students have to self-isolate, take COVID-19 tests and complete forms. Below is a video of one of our students explaining what it was like for him. Always refer to the UK government website to find out what you need to do.

Introduction

Since 1970, Hilderstone College has established an outstanding reputation for running top-quality teacher training courses. We currently run courses for secondary and higher education English teachers and CLIL teachers from around the world. Our highly experienced trainers ensure that our professional development courses provide you with the ideal opportunity to improve your English language, develop your teaching skills and share teaching ideas.

Language Development

Morning classes are language intensive and are designed to help you improve your fluency and command of English in stimulating ways. We use a continuously updated range of resources and materials to provide you with the ideal opportunity to enrich your language and experience current approaches to exploiting authentic texts, audio-visual resources, the internet and communication technology in the classroom.

Hilderstone College - Erasmus+

Erasmus+ funding for individuals and groups of teachers

All Hilderstone College teacher development courses are eligible for Erasmus+ funding.

In the afternoons there are a range of course options allowing you to focus on areas of interest to you. Examples of such options are: creative teaching, contemporary British language and culture, CLIL and Cambridge C1 Advanced exam preparation for teachers.

We recommend you start the process of application with your school/college/organisation and apply for your Hilderstone College course as soon as you are sure your school is prepared to support your application.

You can apply for your course now. We will hold your place on the course until you have confirmed your funding application has been successful.

To help you prepare, you can look at examples of the application form.

What to do next

  1. Read the Erasmus+ information at the links below and arrange a meeting with the person responsible in your school, university, college or organisation.
  2. Your school / organisation will need to submit a plan for one or two years, in line with the EU 2020 Education, Training, Youth and Sport Proposal requesting a number of grants for their staff to attend training courses at Hilderstone College.
  3. Your school will need to register with the European Commission's Participant Portal and get a PIC number. Click here for instructions. If you wish to include Hilderstone College as a partner in your project, rather than just the course provider, please include the College's PIC number (945722647) or OID number (E10061219).
  4. If this funding is awarded, you and your school/organisation can then choose which Hilderstone College course you would like to participate in.
  5. There is no longer an EU course database, so you can choose any of our Hilderstone College Teacher Development Courses
