Smartaupairs Introduction Day 2013

Every September, the Smartaupairs UK team organises an Introduction Day for au pairs who have recently started their placements.

This year, we were joined by just over 100 au pairs! The purpose of the Introduction Day is to recap on some of the basic information about being an au pair and to help the au pairs to meet friends and make the most of their time in the UK.

As an example, the topics we covered included:

  • advice on practicalities, such as registering with GP/opening a bank account
  • how to deal with homesickness
  • the importance of good communication with the host family
  • ideas for entertaining the children
  • how to find friends

We were also joined by Tom from International Friends who spoke about the day trips and weekend tours that they offer at a discounted price for our au pairs!

Afterwards we were joined by many au pairs at a local bar. This proved to be a great opportunity for them to get to know each other in a less formal setting.

The Smartaupairs team thoroughly enjoyed meeting the au pairs at our Introduction Day and we hope that all those who attended found it useful!
