What is an Au Pair Training Manual

Au Pair Training Manual

What does this mean?

An Au Pair Training manual is a manual/book or set of guidelines typically given to an au pair or individual who expresses interest in working with and increasing their knowledge on children. This manual can be used by an au pair, mom or nanny.

Where do I get an Au Pair Training Manual?

You can obtain an Au Pair Training Manual from companies (That Sassy Life Coach)/institutions/agencies that offer some form of child related courses such as: Online au pair training

At what age can I obtain an Au Pair Training Manual?

Typically, when doing any form of learning that is centered around helping children, one would need to be 18 years or older. The reason for this is that anyone younger than the stipulated age would need to focus on school, their grades and their exams in order to better “qualify” as an au pair, tutor or nanny.

Can Mothers receive an Au Pair Training Manual?

Of course if you are a mother, this would assist you on finding better, healthier ways in getting your children to eat, handle conflict and how to identify bullying or any forms of abuse (physical, sexual, emotional and mental abuse). These topics are also covered in our Online Au Pair Training

How do I get an Au Pair Training Manual?

In order to obtain an au pair training manual, you would need to do one of two things:

  1. You would have to attend au pair training in person or….
  2. Purchase the online au pair training version and receive the manual/course contents (Have a look at our training page for more information). Our course is highly rated and has seen many individuals excel

The ins and outs of an Au Pair Training Manual and the process:

An au pair training manual is:

  • Either sent to you via email or whatsapp – it may take a few days for you to receive your guidelines (this may not bother most people but it can slow down your learning process as well as the time it would take for you to receive your certificate)
  • Is the same price as au pair training (so you don’t have to attend the training)
  • Is a new trend at the moment
  • Helps you better understand children
  • Is usually priced between R450 to R750 (this is quite expensive)

An au pair training manual doesn’t:

  • Allow you to engage in content from the internet such as videos as you need to print it the manual – we offer videos and other forms of content to engage with with our online au pair training
  • Videos are important because they give you a different perspective on life
  • Is a waste of paper (which is why we created our online course) – get more involved in saving paper this 2020!
  • Give you the ability to engage on a student platform and to have direct contact with That Sassy Life Coach’s Training Team

What are some of the things that are covered in an Au Pair Training Manual?

Whether you purchase the au pair training manual, attend au pair training or purchase the online version of the course, the content that is covered is still the same, it just depends who you decide to train through.
