These are essential - we cannot process your application without them. For your references make sure you show proof of your previous experience. For example, if you have undertaken a lot of babysitting, make sure you have a reference from one of the families you have babysat for. You should also provide a personal /character reference, which could be from a teacher, employer, trusted individual, but not a reference from your own family.
Make sure you include contact details of all references (telephone number and email address) because we will need to contact them (use our REFERENCE PACK). Don’t forget, all references must be written in English, or translated into English. In the reference pack, we provide you with a medical form to be completed by your doctor, to confirm you are fit and healthy to work abroad as an Au Pair. Alternatively you can provide a medical certificate from your doctor but it has to be translated into English. A police report is vital because it confirms that you do not have a criminal record.
This can also be known as a statement of good conduct is some countries. You can get this form from your local police station or town hall. Police checks can take sometime, so you may want to submit the rest of the paper work, registration, video and photos first. We can interview you without the police check but you must provide it before you travel here, and the placement with the family depends on us receiving a clean police check.
