Target International launches new junior centres

02 October, 2015

Target English International, a UK-based provider of junior courses, has announced two new residential centres for 2016, bringing its total number of summer locations to 10.

The campus of Newton Rigg College in the Lake District, one of Target English International's new locations for 2016

The new centres are situated in the historic city of Lincoln and on the edge of the Lake District National Park, with the latter programme also offering specialist adventure activities such as climbing, high ropes and canoeing.

Cath Lanyon, Sales & Marketing Manager at Target International, said, “Lincoln is a world-class visitor destination and tourism has been booming here in recent years. However, it also seems to be one of the best-kept secrets in England! We would love to put Lincoln on the language travel industry map alongside similar cities such as York and Canterbury.”

The Lincoln centre will be based at Bishops Grossteste University, a short walk from the city centre, which features a cathedral and Norman castle. “The campus has a mix of historic and modern facilities in a peaceful setting yet within 15 minutes’ walk of the main attractions.”

Newton Rigg College on the edge of the Lake District will be the host for Target’s other new 2016 offering. “Famous for its spectacular lakes and mountain scenery, the Lake District has much more to offer students in terms of its heritage, great literary connections and over 400 pretty towns and villages to explore within the national park boundary,” said Lanyon.

The campus boasts two climbing walls and a tree-tops assault course with the option of a ‘Pirate Canoe Adventure’ on nearby Lake Ullswater.

“Not only are both campuses great in terms of location and facilities, they also enjoy the added benefit of being more competitively priced than similar campuses in the south of England. In the current climate, it was important for us to be able to offer our customers more attractive prices whilst maintaining the quality we have become known for.”

As with Target English’s other summer centres, students will take the Trinity GESE exam at the end of the programme. “We find this ensures a higher-quality teaching and learning experience,” said Lanyon. “Parents also like to see tangible results and feel they are getting more value for their investment.”
