As well as offering courses at the University of Nottingham, University of Hertfordshire and the University of Essex, Bayswater will operate a Junior centre in central London at Kensington Park School.
“We will be offering more learning opportunities outside of the classroom”
This will be available to groups with homestay accommodation as well as families and local residents on a course only or day camp basis.
Trends in the ELT sector consistently show higher growth in child and teen travel than traditional adult individual students, with the latest English UK Student Statistics report showing that under 18s comprised of 55% of all enrolments in the private UK ELT sector in 2017.
Having recruited a team with experience and expertise in the junior market, Bayswater said they are confident that they have curated the right portfolio of locations and programs to meet the needs of the market with a focus on maximising the value for money given in their programs.
Managing director of Bayswater Education Stephan Roussounis said that although there are many people operating in the same market, the company feels that they can “offer something different”.
“We will be offering more learning opportunities outside of the classroom for our students and giving them the opportunity to see as much as possible during their stay,” he continued.
Jamie Tyler, Bayswater’s commercial manager added: “Our experienced team have put together innovative programs and we will continue to look to do things differently and offer something interesting and unique to our clients and this has been received positively by our partners.”
Bayswater Education operates on a one for one model and Bayswater Summer will be no different; for each course delivered in the UK Bayswater will sponsor a course for an underprivileged child who does not have access to language education.
Bayswater Summer will become a new department of Bayswater Education alongside Bayswater College, its year-round operation offering English language courses for adults and junior groups as well as accredited professional short courses.
