Group Leaders

Leaders are the people who sending agents select to travel with the group.

Leaders should: 

  • Meet their students at as they arrive at school each morning to ensure everyone is present.
  • Collect mobile phones from students as they arrive and give them to the school administrator for safe keeping until break time.
  • Meet with the school administrator each morning to discuss what afternoon and evening activities are running.
  • Ensure that all students help with keeping the lunch room clean and tidy.
  • Ensure that all students are on time for their afternoon activities.
  • Be present for all evening activities to assist tutors and supervisors.
  • Go on weekend tours and ensure that students from their group are safe and accounted for.
  • Encourage students to participate fully in all afternoon and evening activities.
  • Encourage students to interact with other students from various countries and groups.

    We also encourage leaders to participate in some of the afternoon activities and weekend tours for their own enjoyment.

Hear what our past students had to say...


I really enjoyed my time in Ireland! The Blended Programme gave me good experiences, meeting new people, learning a new culture and language. I learned a lot at the Irish Wheelchair Association Carlow where I did my internship. I also learned a lot studying the Human Growth and Development and Work placement module. The time flew because we were having so much fun. I can't believe it's already over but I will never forget it. Blended Programme thanks for everything!


The Blended Programme was great! It was an amazing combination of the internship and college. I've learned so much at school about Human Growth and Development. My internship was great and all the Irish people are amazing! Sean, Danny and Claire helped us when we needed them, they were fantastic. Thanks for everything, this is an experience I will always remember.


My experience with the Erasmus+ Blended Programme is very positive. It gave me an opportunity to learn about Ireland, learn the English language but also I learned to be more independent. Supervisors from the Blended Programme, teachers from school and my colleagues from Hillview Nursing home helped me with everything. Blended Programme thanks for this amazing experience I will never forget it.
