Host Families (looking after students)
ICON UK Ltd are looking for host families in various locations across the UK. Our host families provide a warm and caring environment for students during school holidays while they study for their A Levels/GCSE’s in English Boarding schools. By staying with local families, students further improve their English language skills and develop their independence.
As a host family you must provide a suitable bedroom complete with wardrobes/storage and a desk. Meals to be provided include breakfast, lunch and evening meal although some students do eat out on occasions and some will even cook dishes from their home country for you to try.
Alongside the financial benefit hosting brings it also gives you and your family the opportunity to learn about different cultures and forge new relationships with people from all over the world. Some of our hosts liken the relationship with their students to that of having an extended family.
We currently work with a wide range of hosts this includes: individuals who live alone, single parents, young professionals, families with pets and retired couples. There really is no limitation as to who can become a host family, all we ask for is a safe and happy environment for our students.
