Apprentices who live too far away to travel to the academy in Bristol stay with a local host family. S&B homestay providers come from all walks of life. For example, a widow or widower, a single person or couple whose children are grown up all make excellent hosts, too.
All of our homestay providers have regular DBS/CRB (criminal record) checks carried out on them. They also provide us with an annual landlord's gas safe certificate as well as their home contents insurance.
Most homestay providers are able to accomodate more than one apprentice at any one time so this may mean you will share a room with a fellow apprentice.
Homestay providers and their apprentices often develop great friendships that can last for many years.
