Trip overview

Everyone knows that the best nannies are from the UK. Right? This is your chance to travel to the UK and immerse yourself in an intensive, weeklong nanny training course, to be trained by the best, to become the ultimate nanny. Now, we can’t promise flying umbrellas or singing chimney sweeps, but this is a solid foundation in all the skills you will need to be a nanny anywhere in the world. 

Set in a delightful, remodelled country house in the rolling green hills of Wiltshire, you will escape to this quintessentially English retreat where you will live and study with a group of trainee nannies from around the world. The open spaces in the house are perfect for living and learning and the expert team are primed to tutor you in all aspects of the craft of looking after children. Not only are you building your skill set, but also building your confidence, which is a key part of childcare. We keep the numbers down on these courses to ensure the most hands-on approach from the tutors, so you leave knowing that you can look after any kids, anywhere in the world. 

Located near London, you are in the perfect spot to do some exploring before or after your course begins. The house is located in Salisbury, a beautiful cathedral city which is right in the heart of all you imagine about England. With the Cotswolds to the north, the glorious coast to the south and London to the east, you really couldn’t be in a more picturesque part of England.  Once you have finished the course, you can easily head out and explore the big cities, London, Manchester, Edinburgh, and the incredible wild spaces in the quaint Cotswolds, the rugged valleys of Wales and the genuinely stunning highlands of Scotland. And, this is not to mention the whole of Europe, which is just a short ferry or plane journey away!

Our dedicated team will help you with all the essentials you need, from visa application, airport transfer & accommodation, 24/7 worldwide support and so much more so that you arrive focused on one thing and one thing only, getting that nanny qualification nailed!

Trip details

There are no two ways about it, this is a serious course! While you will definitely be working with a great group of international students and there will be plenty of fun, this is a really focused, intensive course. Working with children is such a huge responsibility that the course is completely geared towards giving you every skill possible so you enter the world of nanny or au pair work, with no worries at all. For this, you have to put in a fair shift, but the qualification at the end is an amazing thing to have on your CV.

Travelling with Global Work & Travel means that you don’t have to think any further than wanting to get stuck into this course. Our expert team will take care of the heavy lifting, getting you secured with a guaranteed spot, securing any visa requirements if you need them and providing you with unparalleled guidance and support, answering any queries you have about your placement with our trademark depth and understanding. 

When you touch down in the UK, you will have the confidence that you are one step ahead, that all you need to do is get on the plane and as soon as you arrive, our team will be there to pick you up and welcome you in. We have spent years nurturing bonds with our incredible in-country partners, so you can be assured that you are in great hands and will not only learn a ton but will have a great time doing it. 

The course is based on very practical aspects and is very hands-on. We only put together small groups for this course so that you are assured more one-on-one time with the tutors, have lots of time to ask questions and really develop your understanding of the material. Staying in a friendly home environment, you will feel like a little family as you learn, not only practical skills, but focus on your mindset and confidence, so you are ready to go straight out into the world of work and truly succeed. 


Strong understanding of written and spoken English as a minimum.

What extra costs will I have? 

Flights, travel insurance, visa, souvenirs & spending money.

After settling in and freshening up, you will meet with the team, get to know your fellow students and get ready for a week of incredible learning.

Are flights & insurance included?

While we would love to include flights and insurance in our trip packages, it is not feasible to have a fixed price due to the diverse destinations, trip durations, and individual coverage needs of our travellers from around the globe. However, once you register for the trip, we will assign you a dedicated Travel Concierge. They will work closely with you to arrange the ideal flights and insurance tailored to your specific adventure. Rest assured, our team is here to ensure you have a smooth and hassle-free travel experience from start to finish!

How do I choose the right study trip?

With so many incredible options, we understand that selecting the perfect study trip can be tricky. That's why we recommend booking your favourite one, and your dedicated Trip Coordinator will guide you through the project details. They will consider your interests, goals, and desired outcome for the trip. If we find another trip that better suits your preferences, we can easily swap you over to ensure you have the ideal study experience. Rest assured, we're here to help you find the right fit!

Do I need any prior experience for a study trip?

Most of our study trips are designed to cater to participants of all abilities and levels of experience. You can confidently join our program without any previous background or expertise. Our courses are structured to provide a valuable and enriching learning experience for everyone, ensuring you can make the most out of your study trip adventure, and go home with a new or developed skill!

What is the typical group size I'll be studying with?

The group sizes for our study trips typically range from 4 to 12 people, with variations depending on the specific trip. Most of our participants are travelling solo and share a common enthusiasm for learning and making new connections. And as our travellers come from various countries worldwide, joining a study trip offers an exceptional opportunity to build a diverse network of friends from all corners of the globe!

Why should I book now?

After the last unexpected disruption to travel caused by the..c word..people are now more eager than ever to venture out and explore the world, determined not to miss out on any experiences. Global Work & Travel works on a first-in-best-dressed basis. Booking earlier ensures that you don’t miss out on the best intake, season, placements and more! We recommend our travellers take 6-12+ months to plan their trip for a reason - to make sure you’ve got everything organised perfectly, stress-free. As a Global Traveller you’ll get exclusive access to gWorld, our personalised app where you can keep all of your important documents and trip details in one spot and gain insider access to everything Global.

Can I travel with a friend or partner?

Yes you can! Simply tell your Trip Coordinator after booking that your friend is also going and they can link your profiles. For most of our trips we should be able to have you and your friends placed together or nearby. Meaning that you can live, work, play & travel together! But wait there's more! Not only can you travel the world with your besties at your side, you can also earn some extra cash towards your own trip just by referring your friends to Global Work & Travel. You can learn more about the great referral rewards program inside your gWorld account once you join. And for those who decide to go-it-solo, we’ve made it easier to meet other Global Travellers in the same region as you. Just like any other social platform, you’ll be able to interact, share, chat and meet with some really cool people who are doing trips just like you!

Can I bring my pet along?

At Global Work & Travel, we share a deep love for animals and fully understand the special bond you have with your pet. We recognise the challenges of embarking on a trip without them. Due to travel restrictions, requirements, and limited pet-friendly accommodations among our host organisations, we regretfully cannot facilitate their inclusion in the journey. However, many of our customers choose to entrust their pets to a family member or friend, embark on their adventure, and return home to wagging tails and furry cuddles.

What happens if I need to cancel my trip?

We know that life can get in the way of travel, so all our trips come with a great deal of flexibility. In most cases, if you cannot travel on your selected date, you can place your trip on hold to deal with whatever is holding you back, and continue in the future without incurring any penalty. You may also have the option of transferring to an entirely different trip and destination as well, or even transferring your trip to a friend or family member. In the event that you need to outright cancel your trip, if you give us 84* days notice you can do so with only a 50% cancellation fee. Your refund of the balance will come in the form of a Store Credit which you can put toward any other trip that we offer, including tours through third-party providers, as well as holidays through, and is valid for 2 years from date of issue. As international travel can be complex, your options are based on the progress of your trip organisation and our support team can assist you in finding the best solution for your needs.
