What is an
Educational Guardian?

Children and young people who come alone to study in the UK from abroad are required to have an Educational Guardian, who will take on the responsibilities on behalf of the parents, in finding a suitable host family, applying for school places (if required) and supervising the academic process through application, enrolment and study to ensure everything is ready for your child to begin their course of study.

The school will then deal with the education guardian on day-to day matters and your child can turn to Alpha Guardians for help in any situation, as we provide 24/7 emergency cover. We are also able to help with any health, financial or travel needs ensuring your child has a safe and enjoyable time whilst here in the UK.

What families say about us

We have placed 1000’s of students and counting.

JD, Host Parent,
Feb 2020
“We have been hosting international students for about five years now. During that time, we have welcomed about 20 students into our home. Every one of them has bravely left family and friends to come to a new country to improve their English.
It’s been a privilege to get to know these young people, to support and enjoy them as they settle into school and make friends here, in the UK.
We have shared meals together, played board games, watched films and been on many outings.  It has been a lot of fun and we have made some very special friends.”

Having these young students from around the world living with us these last 10 years has given us great pleasure.  Not only have they been fun to be around, we’ve found the sixth form students to be organised and independent.”
“Conversations around the dinner table have given us insight into different cultures and cuisine.”

 “I really don’t know where to start to say thank you very much for everything you did for me.  It really felt like home staying with you.  We had many wonderful experiences and I enjoyed them very much”
“I was really nervous and excited the day we met.  But you listened to me very patiently when I couldn’t speak English well.  Because of your kindness, I tried to explain what I wanted to tell yo and finally I became confident using English””
