The Au Pair Certificate gives Au Pairs the chance to receive a written confirmation about the Au Pair experience
 
AuPair.com offers you the possibility to download both the certificate and the diploma in different languages. What is the difference? The diploma shows that you have participated in the Au Pair Program, while the certificate communicates what you have done during the Au Pair stay: your responsibilities, time spent, duration of the program and any other relevant extra information. You can download both templates below:
To edit the Au Pair certificate and insert your personal details, you can download Adobe Reader. It’s a free program that you can install on your computer. Remember that this certificate is a general template. Make sure that the institution that requires this certificate will accept the template.

We recommend filling in the certificate and signing it while you are still abroad. If you have participated in the Au Pair program in different countries, ask each of your Host Families to sign a certificate. This will help you to prove your experience.

Why is the Au Pair program good for your career?

The Au Pair program certificate makes a great addition to your job applications. Why? 
 
During your time abroad as an Au Pair you have proven many things, each of them of unprecedented value for your future employers. You moved abroad on your own, proving your maturity, independence and courage. You lived in a distant country for months, proving your ability to adapt to a new environment and to deal with stressful situations. You found common ground with foreigners and mastered a foreign language on a native level.That’s what is called Cross-Cultural Competence and what you can boldly write down in your resume.
 
Besides all the skills and competences you gained during the Au Pair program, there is also one extra advantage of your time abroad. Separated from your daily routine, university, school and family, you will have time to think of yourself and what you really want to achieve in your life.

How long does it take to find a Host Family?
It depends on several factors. Create your profile and make it attractive for other users. Check that you meet the Au Pair requirements set by the Au Pair program. Be active and contact 20-30 Host Families per day. While contacting the Host Families, make also sure that you fulfil the family’s expectations.
