  • Welcome Pack - help and guidance with setting up a bank account; getting a

What are you going to do

Our French government funded initiative allows you to undertake an early years childcare diploma at our training centre – the Paris Institute of Childcare Training. In addition you will help French children to improve their English and we will also offer you FREE FRENCH LESSONS. The perfect programme. Apply ASAP.

Start date – mid August 2017 to mid July 2018.

Based in the heart of Paris near the Champs Elysses, we offer an excellent learning experience in addition to earning while you are learning!

All our teachers are bilingual and we offer full administrative support to get you on your feet here.

You will undertake a CAP Petite Enfance diploma (focuses on early childhood education from 0 to 6 years old) which is a recognised qualification by the French government. You can expect to do an average of about 35 hours a week (note some weeks will vary when you are on work placement and other weeks you will have fewer hours but you will receive the same monthly salary).

There is no weekend work and you have one week holidays OFF at Christmas and Easter (holiday pay is included). There may be additional holidays (paid for). The hours consist of the diploma classes (which you are paid to do - a unique opportunity in itself) and then about 20 to 22 hours a week working for a French family to help their child/ren learn English - materials and methods will also be provided for this work.

In addition you will improve your French via free French lessons and can also do work placements in international schools and crèches. We can guide you about where to look for accommodation via our 'welcome pack,' and have links with some student residences that we can discuss upon application but also advise you to look as competition is strong for a place to live in Paris.

What we ask:

  • Fluent English
  • 2 childcare references
  • You must be able to come to Paris asap for interviews and to meet potential families you will work with. The objective is to finalise everyone's work contracts and which family they will work for before the end of June 2017 in order to ensure a smooth start in August.

    The course will finish in June 2018 and family work will finish in early to mid-July 2018 depending on the family you are with. You must have previous childcare experience, ideally babysitting in a home setting or working in a nursery and or teaching English. Some French would be an advantage but we have had previous candidates who were complete beginners in the language and were able to pass the exam. In the previous few years, additional intensive classes were offered to help beginner level speakers.

    You need to send a copy of your CV, references and contact details (email, phone, skype info). We would require a face to face meeting with you (the earlier the better). The sooner the more chance you have of obtaining a place on the course.
