The Demi Pair Programme offers students the opportunity to live for free with an Italian family and help in the childcare for up to 20 hours per week whilst also continuing to study at the school. 

We place in carefully selected families in the main Italian cities, Roma, Genova, Florence, Milano.

Demi-pairs improve their Italian language skills and our families receive a much-needed helping hand around the house. Our popular and professionally-run demi-pair programmes operate all year around except for the summer months.

Participants will be asked to integrate 100% into the lifestyle of their Italian family.

• To be independent and responsible
• To want to help out in the family home with little housework and childcare
• To be able to adjust easily to a different environment and culture
• To fill out our au pair form, write a dear family letter, have two references, a medical certificate and police check
