Training with EduBabe:
Aupairs - Everyone has a dream to travel the world and see new places: Au pairing not only offers you the chance to fulfil this dream but it also allows you to become part of a new family and a new culture for a year.
Instead of being just a tourist, you will become Italian, French, Dutch, German or American for a year. The families also view this experience as a way for them to "travel" without going anywhere.
Being an au pair is not about working for a family but being involved in an exchange program-an exchange of cultures, languages and friendship. You will also be able to study either a language or a course of your choice! Au pairing is a safe and secure way of exploring a foreign country-especially if you have never travelled before. Our course prepares you for this experience and details what to expect and what you should know in order to be a competent Au Pair.
Their is also a demand for well trained Au Pairs in South Africa so you don't only have to consider living overseas. Many returning Au Pairs are snapped up in the local market.
TRAINING DOMESTIC WORKERS AND CHILD MINDERS
The Childcare courses are made up of five modules namely
- Baby and childcare
- Infant and toddler stimulation
- First Aid and Home safety
Clients are encouraged to do the course as a whole, as all modules are absolutely vital to the well being and development of the child.
DURATION: Delegates attending all modules, attend 4 sessions of 4 hours each.
This first 4 modules benefits any domestic worker who has any contact with children, giving her the confidence, knowledge and skills with which to develop and stimulate the children in her care.
This First Aid and Home Safety module covers essential aspects of First Aid, home safety, CPR and the treatment of general ailments. Delegates are equipped with skills with which to handle an emergency situation until more qualified assistance arrives at the scene.
All delegates will receive a manual during the course and a certificate once the course has been completed.
We also offer training for:
- Cooking and Baking
- Day Mothers
- First Aid
- Frail Care
- House Keeping
At EDU BABE we have taken both needs into consideration - the need for domestic worker training and that of supporting parents in their task of raising children by placing child minders and domestic workers in their homes.
