Demi Pair/Au Pair Program
These programs provide an invaluable opportunity for students to practise speaking English whilst living and working with a local Australian family. Students look after the children and assist with household duties in exchange for meals, their own room and a weekly allowance. The Demi- Pair program allows students to combine full-time study in Perth at the Academy with 15-20 hours of work per week plus babysitting (minimum study period 12 weeks). Students who choose the Au Pair program have the opportunity to study for a minimum of 4 weeks and they can choose either the 15 or 20 hour per week option while studying and can increase to the 30 hour option when their study at Phoenix has finished.
