English + Demi Pair Programme
Study English at NZLC while working as a Demi Pair.
Work 20 hours/week assisting a family as a Demi pair. You will have the opportunity to gain child care experience and immerse yourself in the English language. In exchange for helping care for your host family’s children and doing light house work, you will receive food and accommodation as well as pocket money (approximately $125/week).
Note: NZLC will release more detailed NZLC Demi Pair Information for 2023 along with an application form shortly.
