Supporting under 18s summary

Support for students who are under 18 years old

Taylors College Perth takes special care and interest in the welfare of our under 18 students. It is a requirement by Taylors College Perth that all students under 18 have a caregiver, regardless of your country of origin.

Caregivers are multilingual and meet with the underage student on a weekly basis to support and guide them. They liaise with the school and your parents, reporting on your academic progress and any concerns regarding health, housing and after hour activities. There is also a 24 hour telephone service in case of an emergency.

Taylors College has made arrangements with a couple of guardian companies to provide caregiver services. If the parents of a student decide to use our approved caregivers, they should contact the caregiver directly to arrange the appropriate service.
