Nigel has been involved in safeguarding children for over 40 years, since he first trained as a teacher of children with learning difficulties. He has had to deal with many different safeguarding situations throughout his career which has included working in the UK state sector, in ELT overseas and also in UK, managing junior summer programmes and for the last 12 years, training.
Nigel is a tutor for English UK and is the leading safeguarding trainer and consultant for ELT in the UK. He specialises in student welfare in general and safeguarding and young learners in particular.
Safeguarding children well is one of the most important things we do for international students visiting UK. It is very important that we get it right.
