If your education,experience and willingness allows, here it is where you can go after you have worked a year as an Au-pair:
  • Au-pair Plus
 A young person with some childcare experience (at least 1 year) who works up to 35 hours per week and receives a minimum payment of £100 per week. He/she has 2 free days and 3 free evenings and babysits up to 2 nights/week.


  • Au-Pair Couple
As the name suggests, we refer to a couple who meet the basic Au-pair description, but at least one of them must be a driver. They can work as different combinations of au-pairs and have to be paid accordingly. They are usually provided a separate annexe to the house,and some families prefer to pay them £50 week  food allowance.
