Chief Academic Officer, Simon Brewster, will be here to tell you all about the programme and the opportunities available.

You will also hear from a returning student to hear about their experiences working in Mexico with them. Here's what she has to say:

"My time working for the Anglo Mexican Foundation was the best experience of my academic career. Working with young children for the Churchill School was an incredibly rewarding experience. Not only do you get to aid their learning and development in English, but you're also involved in a multitude of exciting outside of the classroom activities. For example, I thoroughly enjoyed helping with the Winter festival play and the science fair. I found being involved in these activities enabled me not only to bond with the children outside of a classroom environment, but also gave me the opportunity to experience firsthand the different roles and responsibilities within the teaching community." - Molly, Level 3 French & Spanish student
