As a gap assistant, you’ve got the opportunity to work alongside staff at local schools in England, Scotland and Wales, experiencing life in the British Isles first-hand. And when school’s out, you’re free to roam not just the country, but the entire continent – all of Europe’s major attractions are right there on your doorstep, after all! If you show enough initiative and enthusiasm, you may even get the chance to experience the UK and Europe’s charms as an assistant on a school camp!
Placements for our United Kingdom Gap Year Program commence at the start of January and conclude in mid December each year.
Our United Kingdom Gap Year Program is available as a 12-month commitment. At this stage, there are no shorter-term placement options available for this particular program.
In addition to complimentary food and accommodation, participants can expect to receive approximately £100 per week as an allowance throughout the school term.
Applicants for this must:
We've got a huge network of schools across the UK. Keep in mind though, due to the limited number of school placements available in London, we can't guarantee that you'll be placed where requested. But don’t stress - the UK public transport system is an easy and affordable way to explore every corner of the island nation, including London.
To apply for this program, you’ll first be required to share a bit about yourself by completing an online application form and uploading your photo. Be sure to include as much detail as possible! This will help us to secure the right placement for you.
So, you’ve completed the form. What’s next?
Once we receive your application, we’ll contact your three nominated referees and ask them to complete a confidential online evaluation form regarding your suitability for the United Kingdom Gap Year Program. Once we’ve heard back from each of your referees, we’ll get in touch with you via email to arrange a time and date for your face-to-face interview.
Following your face-to-face interview, we hope to be in a position to discuss your application with the ideal school for you in the United Kingdom!
