College Mentors take a key role in providing an exceptional student experience as part of their Summer School course. They will be engaged in the pastoral care and supervision of students alongside the planning and delivery of activities and evening events. They will be a trusted point of contact for students to support them through their course, and are responsible for upholding and championing behaviours that we expect to see in our students. College Mentors need to be highly attentive and well organised in their approach to supervision of students and engaging with behaviour or welfare issues. With students from a diverse range of countries and cultures, it is important that College Mentors have sufficient presence to connect and include students in order to create a fun, welcoming and vibrant atmosphere in their College.

All members of staff employed by SBC will be expected to bring certain key qualities to the operation. There must be a professional interest in working with young people and particularly international children. Safety and welfare of the students is of paramount importance at SBC and a practical enforcing of this belief should be a quality exhibited by all staff.
We look for staff who are:
Although College Mentors are not required to teach the English language lessons, we do expect them to be able to communicate effectively with our students, using an appropriate level of language to suit the group. College Mentors must demonstrate patience, empathy and an emotional awareness towards students both individually and in within a group setting. We expect College Mentors to take control of students and to manage discipline and behavioural issues in a firm, positive and constructive manner.
Since 2009, SBC International (SBC) has welcomed Young Learners, aged between 8 and 17 years old, from 151 different countries to study our courses in some of the most prestigious academic institutions in the UK, including Eton College and Oxford University.

SBC is the first, and currently only, summer school provider in the UK to have achieved a perfect 15 Areas of Strength in a British Council inspection. In the EL Gazette ranking tables for UK Junior Courses, SBC has been ranked Number 1 in 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021. We are very proud of this achievement and will continue to grow and develop our courses to offer students extraordinary experiences.
As a small and growing office we are expanding year on year and where possible we aim to recruit from our short term summer staff before seeking external candidates. A large percentage of our Head Office staff worked at our summer sites before joining us for their full-time careers. As a part of Dukes Education we also have links to many other schools which occasionally offer up employment opportunities to our staff.
Whilst international travel restrictions have been in place, we have worked closely with a number of boarding schools to provide holiday courses for their students who have been unable to return home. We look forward to utilising this experience to provide a safe, secure, and enjoyable experience for all of our students and staff in the coming year.
