General Information


All host families must be inspected and interviewed.


Proof of Garda vetting approval must be in place before host families are approved by Brookfield College English Language School.


Once approval is in place all host families must complete a 1 hour and 30 minutes e-training course which is free, run by TUSLA, the Irish Child Protection Agency. Host families must show proof they have completed the course. You can print off the certificate once you have finished the online course.


A Power Point presentation will be given to host families before the students arrive.


Method of payments to host families is clarified once approval is in place.


During the presentation all questions from host families will be answered.


Students have a strict code of conduct. This is to assure parents regarding the safety of their children when they are abroad. It must be followed by the school and the host families to ensure the students have a safe and enjoyable stay in Tralee.


Looking forward to meeting you.
