Event Description

Good preparation is essential for teachers, house parents, family tutors or other MK staff. These new workers need specialist training to understand the unique nature of TCKs, their family situations and the schools they study in. This training course is currently just one of four inter-mission PFO courses around the world. Planning and preparation are keys to a successful experience for the MK staff. the school and, most importantly, our children.

Held at The WEC International Centre at Bulstrode just outside NW London – about half an hour from Heathrow Airport.

Among other things our seminars cover:

  •     Introduction to TCKs & the reason for working with TCKs
  •     Working in the international school, cross-cultural and generational teams
  •     Child protection
  •     International and Christian education
  •     Special educational needs


Specific seminars for teachers, teaching assistants, family tutors, and boarding parents.

Choose from one of these two options:

Week One: Monday 21st to Tuesday 29th July (Overlap between two groups on Monday 28th July)

Week Two: Sunday 27th July to Saturday 2nd August

There is a £40 administration cost which includes registration and materials. The current cost of accommodation including full board and lodging is £10.00 per day, with a special rate for families with children under 14.
