Education Requirements for Your Au Pair
Education Requirements for your Au Pair
All au pairs registered with a legal au pair agency are required, by USA Dept. of State law, to take college/university courses while they are with their host families. They typically "audit" courses and do not receive matriculating credits (i.e., they cannot be transferred to a college back home).
Sometimes host families discourage their au pair from taking courses - you should not! They not only have to take these courses, they often look forward to them and having these college courses listed on their resume.
