Without further ado we introduce our NEW Accommodation and Travel department.
In part of our role as guardians we are required to fill in the gaps in the School year where our Boarding Schools close for short breaks and holidays. During these periods it is our responsibility to either arrange the student’s travel home, or to find them a safe place to stay if they choose to stay in the UK.
Because of the great work of our Host Family recruitment Manager, Lindsay Gayler and our Local Coordinators who visit and inspect our families, we are lucky enough to have a large network of excellent Host Families who have not only passed our stringent recruitment process with flying colours, but whom are happy to assist us in an emergency. However even with these families in place, it is inevitable that plans may change. Perhaps the student’s parents will decide they now want their child to fly home for the holiday or our Host Family may be met with unforeseen circumstances meaning they cannot host. In order to allow this crucial part of our service to get even better as we grow we have decided to make some changes that will do just this.
Without further ado we introduce our NEW Accommodation and Travel department. The department will be headed by Hannah Newton, consisting of Host Family recruitment manager, Lindsay Gayler and new team members, Accommodation and Travel Administrators, Leanne Poole (pictured above right) and Kate Hewson (pictured left)
Historically it has been the role of our Guardianship Care Managers to arrange and contact Host Families, arranging for them to collect our students from their respective Boarding Schools and care for them during their short holidays. This will now be taken on by this whole new department and will be handled with even more efficiency and with more contemplation.
Hannah and her team will provide an internal service to our Guardianship Care Managers by arranging transfers and host family stays for all our guardianship students. We hope that you will join us in welcoming Leanne and Kate into their new roles and new team.
