Safety / We Care
We will make contact with you and your candidate in the first few weeks of the placement to check that your candidate is settling into the placement well. We try to maintain regular contact with your candidate throughout their stay to ensure the placement is successful. She will be invited to participate in competitions that we run encouraging engaging activities with the children and has the option to attend one of our monthly outings that we organise to meet the team and other friends in the UK. On arrival into the UK every candidate recieves a welcome pack which will include:
- A welcome booklet
- Tourist information
- Safety information
- Our social calander (Detailaing our scheduled social events)
- Access to our social network site for instant access to friends
- Access to our Website
- Recommended language schools
- An English SIM card for your candidate
Our social events
Every six weeks we organise a social event, you can see some of the places that we have been on our Facebook and twitter accounts. It is a great opportunity to do some sight seeing and meet with other candidates in the UK. The events are always well attended and the candidates benefit a great deal and enjoy the experience.
Through our partnerships with cheap tour companies candidates are able to sight see well known places across the UK. Including Bath, Stonehenge, Oxford, Cambridge, Wales, Brighton, Stratford-Upon-Avon, Norfolk, Windsor and Scotland experiencing the countries history and culture.
Language courses are important if you have booked an au pair placement as they primarily come over to better their language skills. They will often attend two or three times a week and we would kindly ask families to assist them in registering at a local college. This is also a great way for them to make friends and settle in their new home.
