New Au Pair Course helps busy parents

Get your au pair trained in half the time at half the price!


Smartaupairs contributed to a brand new ‘au pair’ course to make it easier for families to train their newly arrived au pair. The online course is accredited through the OCN, the Open College Network and designed by Milton Keynes Language Center.

 

The au pair training course is 30 hour course set out over 4 sections, covering topics such as Getting To Know Your Family, Health & Safety, Food & Recipes and ‘Out & About’. Throughout the course au pairs have access to support from a tutor plus a student forum.

 

The Au pair course is one unit of a larger course titled ‘British Culture’; other units in the course being: British business etiquette, British heritage, People in history and Famous Britons.


At the end of the course, when all the assessments/tasks have been completed successfully, an official certificate will be issued.

 

In addition to the OCN accreditation, we are hoping to gain endorsement from BAPAA for this course, which provides an excellent starting point for every au pair candidate travelling to Britain or recently arrived with their British host family.

 

Smartaupairs offer the course to host families £30 - half the published price of £60; including exam fee and certificate.

 

We feel this will be a fantastic benefit for all host families and au pairs keen to embrace the cultural experience!
