A weekly travel pass costs approximately £35 per week (subject to change).

  • Day Programme students are included in evening and weekend activities, so parents should notify the school if students want to miss any of these activities.



During the week students will receive a hot lunch on campus, except for days when they are out on excursions when they will be provided with a packed lunch. At the weekend, students must bring their own packed lunch.

If students require a vegetarian or any other particular diet, EC must be informed of this prior to their arrival.

EC Young Learners Shoreditch
New City College

1 lesson = 45 minutes
  • The course will help improve English Language skills by encouraging the students to work and communicate together toward completing a weekly Project, emphasis is placed on communication and developing life skills.
  • Lessons are engaging and designed especially for young learners. Teachers aim to satisfy any interest, with a focus on communication to boost students' confidence when using English in practical situations.

Welfare, Rules and Disciplinary Action

Alcohol consumption

As per U.K. law, any EC student on the Young Learners Programme caught consuming alcohol during their stay will be expelled from the school. No alcohol consumption is permitted during the programme.


The consumption of any illegal drugs will result in the immediate expulsion and the possible intervention of the police.


Smoking is not permitted during any part of the programme.

Customer Complaints

At EC, we endeavour to provide our students with the highest possible level of service. If, however, a student is unsatisfied with any aspect of their programme with EC, we ask that they inform us immediately. Most problems are small and can be quickly resolved by our staff members. During the first week of school, all students are given an initial Course Evaluation form, in which they are asked to evaluate various aspects of their stay. The form also allows students to bring to our attention anything that is not to their satisfaction should they feel unable to speak to us directly. Solutions to any issues will be provided and all necessary parties will be notified when applicable. Students are also requested to complete an online End of Course Evaluation form at the end of their stay so that they have the opportunity to provide EC with general feedback before returning to their home countries.


EC reserves the right to expel for any of the following reasons:

  • Possession of any illegal drugs
  • Drinking or bringing alcohol on to any EC premises
  • Malicious damage to school property or place of accommodation
  • If the student is a danger to his/her own safety or that of other students
  • Breaking English law
  • Repeated failure to attend academic lessons and/or social activities
  • Bullying, racist behaviour, sexual harassment or violence

In any of the above circumstances, the student is informed that their stay is going to be terminated with immediate effect. Simultaneously, EC informs the student’s agent of the student’s behaviour and the course of action to be taken. Following such action, EC will terminate all relationships with the student and will be unable to take further responsibility for the student. No refunds will be given to any students who have been expelled.

Course Certificate

Students must attend all lessons and organised activities in order to receive their End of Course Certificate. Students will receive their certificate on the last day of the course.

EC may, from time to time, make an exception and allow students outside the stated age range to participate in one or more of the Young Learner programmes. For more information, please speak with your EC contact.
