Considering Training in person?

Are you considering doing Au Pair Training? Well, that’s fantastic! It is a great course to do and has proven to be highly successful, however, have you stopped to think about the possible hidden costs?

The Cost of Au Pair Training in person

The average au pair agency charges between R500 – R1000 per person per au pair training. These training sessions are between 6-8 hours long and you are awarded a certificate after completing the course. This can be quite expensive considering there are additional costs added on. These costs are over and above the au pair training you receive in person. These costs include petrol, food and public transport. We do discuss this in more detail further down the page.

Hidden Costs:

First hidden Cost with au pair training:

  • In order to complete au pair training, you would need to organise money for transportation costs for those who don’t have a car (this can usually tally up to R200 there and back from the au pair training depending on where you live) This means at this point, together with the cost of the au pair training, you probably would have spent about R1200 in total.

Alternatively, if you have opted to go with an au pair agency that offers au pair training at a price of R500-R600 for in-person training, whilst it is cheaper than the more expensive au pair trainings offered, you would still spend between R700 and R800 just getting to and from the au pair training – this isn’t always a financial option for individuals starting out in childcare such as au pairs, nannies, domestics and home school teachers

Second hidden Cost with au pair training:

  • If you are fortunate enough to have your own vehicle, you will put mileage on your car as well as cause wear and tear on your tires as you have to drive to the venue

Third hidden Cost with au pair training:

  • You have to consider the cost of petrol – some au pairs have to use a significant amount of money on petrol driving to the course (this isn’t always a financial option for some as au pairs tend to be young individuals just starting out in their careers and don’t have much disposable income)
  • If you aren’t lucky enough to have a car, then you would need to opt for making use of public transport. This can be an Uber, Taxi, Bus or Train. Either way, you would be spending an additional R150 – R250 just on transport costs alone
