JZ: Alright, so
people graduate with kind of profession.
NH: They graduate with an access programme which is equivalent to
NH: Which will give them generally, as long as they do well, because
obviously you come out with a ‘passed’, ‘merit’ or ‘distinction’. And you will
acquire enough points to get to university. And obviously the better you do,
the better university you can get to, because obviously the more points you
achieve. So those programmes, I’ve mentioned University of London, which is a
higher… it’s a higher IELTS to get on the programme, but also we would be
looking that their… high school diploma that they were presenting to us
suggested that student were high performing, you know the words. Probably about
85% as an average as… of outcomes, because the students need to be
particularly, you know, able to be able to do it.
JZ: What is your
personal role in all this?
NH: Ok, so I’m the director of international and teacher training, so my
role is… I oversee both the international operations department of the college,
which basically means I have a role where I go out to different parts of the
world to encourage students to come. So I attend conferences and fairs as I
NH: So I’m about to go to China in October.
JZ: So is China
the most popular one or do you keep exploring it?
NH: At the moment the China market is very buoyant, is growing, they are
very competitive. Some of the other markets, like the Middle Eastern market is
subdued because of the financial issues out there. We do do work in South
America, Central America and Asia, but they are not such big numbers as what we
do from China. So I have that role. So I oversee a team that work with
everything to do with obviously visa compliance, accommodation we have here,
cause we have an accommodation team, cause we organise home stay and things for
students. I also oversee our international centre, which is where… which is the
other courses we do, where we run EFL courses, and you could come to do a whole
year of EFL to improve your IELTS or you could come just for a very short
spell, and obviously we have a mixture of Europeans and international students
who do that. And we are quite successful at that, though the EFL market has
quietened a little bit.
JZ: Really? It’s
NH: Yes, it’s interesting. Well, the summer school market is very
JZ: Yeah, you can
see them all in Bournemouth town centre!
NH: Well, you’re an EFL teacher, aren’t you?
JZ: Yes. I don’t
teach here though, I teach in Russia over Skype.
NH: So, the summer school market in terms of youngsters I would say…
cause some youngsters aare only or tend to be over 12, and then 16 and above.
That’s quite buoyant. And I think that’s probably down to the strength, well,
the lack of strength of the pound.
JZ: Yes, I
NH: Whereas if you like EFL from outside of Europe, I think probably,
particularly, if someone wants to come for a longer period of time, they’re
changing the visa regulations whereby they can no longer work, it’s quite
difficult for some students from some countries to be able to come to the UK.
So if they want to come for six months to the UK to actually learn English,
they can’t work at all as you know.
NH: So obviously that’s quite restrictive and that has changed, that has
reduced the amount of students coming on our courses. But, we run them all
year, the EFL programmes, so we still run them, they’re not as big as the
classes that we used to have, but one hopes that maybe with everything that’s
happening with Brexit, who knows what could change.
JZ: Yeah, I was
going to say.
