PROaupair is a professional exchange agency in Australia with a focus on sourcing childcare providers with professional training and backgrounds. We offer our childcare professionals a unique cultural exchange program where they can use their skills and experience to assist Australian families.
To qualify for PROaupair’s professional exchange program, childcare professional candidates must have qualifications or professional experience in a therapeutic background for children or childcare-related field. Candidates must also complete an extensive application that includes background checks and education credentials.
The majority of our childcare professionals hold qualifications from their home country in Germany in one of the following professions:
- Early Childhood Education
- Occupational Therapy
- Paediatric Nursing
- Physical Therapy
- Special Needs Caregiving
- Special Needs Education
PROaupair sources childcare professionals directly through our large network of European universities, vocational training schools, hospitals and referrals from organisations such as the German Red Cross. PROaupair has an office in Germany and our admissions team carefully screens and interviews candidates to ensure they are qualified and meet our strict screening process. Not everyone is accepted onto our program. Most of the childcare professionals we recruit are Germans and they are motivated by the professional and cultural exchange experience.
International Work Experience
Childcare Professionals are motivated to live and work in Australia so they can gain international work experience in their childcare-related field, experience life in another country, and perfect their English. They are also excited about getting to know Australians and life in Australia. The opportunity to spend a year living and working with a host family in Australia also provides them with unique career experience that will differentiate them from other job seekers when they return to their home country.
