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.

Covid-19 threw us a curve ball and pretty much halted all travel. This means that we have a backlog of travellers, just like you, who are desperate to get out and explore the world! 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!

Why not give yourself something to look forward to by booking that trip!

Can I travel with a friend?

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!

What happens if COVID affects my trip?

If you have to make any changes to your departure date, you’re protected with our Lifetime Deposit Guarantee and our Ultimate Corona Booking Flexibility. With this, we will change your trip dates for free. If this doesn’t fit around you and you can’t go on your trip anymore, we will give you a 100% refund in the form of a Trip Credit with us (See terms). If you’re unable to use it, you can also transfer that credit to someone else for them to put towards any trip too.

If you’re affected by Covid-19 while you’re overseas, you will have all the support you need from our team or partners in-country as well as have access to our 24/7 Global Emergency Line. We recommend travellers purchase Global Travel Cover travel insurance that provides Covid-19 medical protection too.

Do I need to be vaccinated to book?

As border restrictions for countries begin to ease, being fully vaccinated will maximise the number of locations you can visit. So while you are not legally required to be vaccinated, and it’s also not a requirement to travel with us, it will limit some of the countries that you can visit and may make it harder to travel through over the next 12-18 months. We highly recommend our travellers look at the current travel restrictions of their destination, speak with a medical professional or get in touch with our team for travel advice.

What happens if I want to cancel my trip?

Our Ultimate Corona Booking Flexibility means you can change your trip’s start date up to 84* days before departure without incurring any charges when you rebook it for any time (or even any other trip) in the next 2 years from your original start date.

In the event that you want to cancel your booking altogether, if you give us over 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 towards booking absolutely anything travel related with your Travel Concierge within the next 2 years!

*Some select trips excluded, including Teach (Spain, Italy & Czech Republic) and USA (Summer Camp, Working Holiday and Hotel Professional), and others as listed in Booking Conditions.
