How to Get Here

Getting to the UK is easy and inexpensive from mainland Europe. Once we have confirmed your work placement, accommodation and programme details please book your flights and inform us of your travel plans.

The South West has excellent transport links. You can book a train/bus or TTPL can provide a private airport transfer service (advance booking is required) to and from the destination airport.

When You Arrive

Private transfers arranged by TTPL will drop at you at your Host Family. If travel arrangements are organised privately, the host family will be available to collect you from the nearest bus/train station. They will make you welcome and show you around your new home. You will also receive a Welcome Pack that includes:

  • TTPL contact information
  • Welcome Meeting details and directions
  • Information about your placement
  • Cultural and safety guidance
  • Places of interest and things to do
  • Local travel details

Arriving in a new town you may be a little nervous or anxious. Don't worry, we will do our best to put you at ease and make sure you have everything you need for a fantastic experience.

At the Welcome Meeting you can meet other trainees and we explain the details of the life and culture in the UK. It’s an opportunity for you to ask us questions.

on your first day we will take you to work  and introduce you to your supervisor.  

We always try to arrange accommodation near to your work placement, which could be within walking distance or a short bus ride away.  

Local travel passes can be arranged upon request and advice about travelling to and from work is included in your Welcome Pack.
