Hosting partner from United Kingdom_Leonardo da Vinci and Erasmus

I am writing to you from Totnes European School, a small school located in the South West of England. I would like to introduce our school and the services we offer in the hope of future collaboration, following the success of Leonardo projects so far this year. In particular, I wonder if you would be able to assist us in any way to make contacts with organisations wishing to participate in Leonardo da Vinci and/or Erasmus projects in the U.K. We would be extremely grateful for any information you may be able to pass on to us regarding schools/colleges/universities in your country.

We are very familiar with Leonardo da Vinci and Erasmus projects, having had over 10 years’ experience as a UK host organisation. We continue to welcome groups of students who participate in these funded programmes, as well as individuals who contact us directly. We offer English courses, homestay accommodation with host families, and unpaid work experience placements in many professional sectors. Please note, however, that we are not in a position to send students abroad.

We offer the following services:

General English courses (15 hours per week) and General + Intensive English courses (20 hours per week) at our British Council accredited school

Unpaid work experience placements in various professional sectors

Half-board accommodation with local families

Complete organisation and supervision of the entire programme by experienced staff

During their stay in the United Kingdom, we accommodate our students with host families for both their English course and their unpaid work placement. Throughout the programme we supervise the students regularly and ask them to complete a portfolio during their placement. We present full certification upon completion of the programme.

I hope that you will find this information useful and may be able to provide us with some contact details. If you have any questions at all or would like further information about Totnes European School, please do not hesitate to contact me and I will be more than happy to assist.

Best Regards,

Cathy Middleton
