SC GEOS Au Pair Program
If your students want to travel abroad, we have a special opportunity for them: become an au pair!
It is a unique chance to get to know another culture, learn about everyday life in a foreign country and find a second home. This program is perfect if your students want to do a gap year and are looking for opportunities to fill the void.
First fill out the application form for oneof the Au Pair programs and hand it into us. You can find the application formeither in the back of this brochure or onour website. Should you have anyquestions our colleagues would behappy to assist you.
After our host families have been carefully selected and screened by our partner institutions, they are welcomed onto the program. Afterwards you can start to get to know each other. Once a decision has been made, it'll be time to pack your things and go.
After we have received and checked your application, you'll receive detailed application documents including the recommendation form and the certificate of health. A personal letter to yourfuture host family and a picture collage to complete your records.
First and foremost, you'll be taking care of of the children. You'll also do light housework, the shopping or prepare small meals. Your working hours are regulated and you will also have enough time for a language class or your own activities.
We check if your application is complete and send it to our colleagues at the partner institution in each destination. Every family who is interested in your application will be contacting you via E-Mail, Skype or phone.
It’s a plus if you are able to communicate in the language of your destination before arriving there. In your host country you will progress and you will feel more and more confident every day.
