What is Demi Pair Program

The word “demi” means “half” in the French language. The Demi Pair program combines daily English classes at Access with a live-in Au Pair experience. Students attend classes during the day (8:30am to 1:00pm for Intensive & IELTS Preparation students, 8:30am to 2:30pm for Super-Intensive, Business and Cambridge Exam Preparation students) before returning to their Access Host Family to help out with childcare and housework duties in the evenings. Demi Pair students work up to 20 hours per week. Common duties include babysitting, school pick-up and light household duties (cleaning children’s rooms, washing up and laundry). In exchange for those services, a Demi Pair will receive complimentary (free) Room and Board – Single Room accommodation and all meals.

Key features

  • Available to students between 18 and 35 years old
  • Applicants must have childcare experience (and include 2 references from previous family employers with application)
  • Minimum English proficiency of Intermediate Level (students of lower proficiency can attend Access General English course full-time until completing Pre-Intermediate level)
  • Demi Pair host families prefer students with a valid driver’s license
  • Apply a minimum of 3 months in advance
  • Skype video pre-interview required
  • Priority placements given to students who show maturity and motivation
