Become a Demi-Pair


Spanish Course for Demi-Pairs

If you would like to learn Spanish in Spain and enjoy a less intensive Au Pair experience then why not become a Demi-Pair with Spark? Being a Demi-Pair gives you the opportunity to work as an Au Pair but with more free time available to allow you to focus more on your Spanish learning.

Demi-Pairs would be expected to work 4 hours a day, 5 days a week, doing similar duties to that of an Au Pair, while having all your accommodation and meals for free.

Demi-Pair Programme Requirements

  1. Demi-Pairs will work 5 days a week for 4 hours a day, this could include a weekend day.  They will also be required to do one night time supervision per week, allowing the parents to either go out or away for that night.
  2. Their main task will be looking after children but they will usually also be required to do simple domestic tasks.
  3. The Demi-Pair should communicate in the chosen language of the parents.  This will normally be English but may be another language depending on the family request and student linguistic ability.
  4. Demi-Pair must be a suitable person to work with children, demonstrating prior experience.  It is Spark’s responsibility to make sure the homestay family is an appropriate one to have a demi-pair at home.
  5. Spark will insist on both the Demi-Pair and family signing an agreement document so all arrangements are as clear as possible.
