I really enjoy receiving TTPL students as a source of additional income. I have hosted more than fifty students over the last five years, rarely have had a difficult student and never asked to have any removed from my home.
As they are older (usually 18 to 30), they are reasonably mature and tend to arrive with a positive attitude towards their stay in the UK and work placement.
It has helped my teenage boys understand different cultures and many of them have gone on to become great family friends.
The income received compared to other student organisations is good and I find it a simple, enjoyable way of helping pay the bills!
