Au Pair Oz

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_single_image image=”1700″ border_color=”grey” img_link_large=”yes” img_link_target=”_blank” img_size=”810 x 521″ css=”.vc_custom_1405157937666{padding-bottom: 30px !important;}”][vc_column_text]China has the world’s second biggest economy and as much as the world is learning Mandarin, the Chinese are wanting to learn English. Teaching children English from a young age is becoming crucial to Chinese families and the need for English speaking au pairs is increasing. China is culturally diverse and hosts one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Great Wall of China. Spend a year in China experiencing this interesting culture and learning Mandarin which will get you one step ahead in the world of tomorrow. Our Chinese partner, as an accredited member of IAPA, goes out of their way to make South African au pairs welcome with regular weekend excursions, get-togethers and other fun social activities with the other au pairs from around the world.

Upon receiving all of the necessary documentation, your file will be sent to our placement partner abroad which will then be reviewed within 24 hours. The matching process with a host family then begins. Once your dedicated au pair consultant has received information from our placement partner about a potential host family, you will be notified immediately so that you are prepared for your telephone call from the host family. Having accepted your host family, your next step will be the visa application and upon approval you will be on your way.[/vc_column_text][/vc_accordion_tab][vc_accordion_tab title=”Cost involved”][vc_column_text]
