Spend 6 or 11 months as an assistant, or “gappie”, at a boarding school in Australia: Get great work experience abroad and boost your CV! Enjoy a 3-day orientation before school starts and assist in the classroom, in general school duties and/or the sports field, inspiring Aussie students and helping with their daily routine. Get a weekly allowance of spending money between AUD75 and AUD200, plus accommodation and meals included during term time. There's plenty of time off to travel and explore Australia during school holidays too!

Trip highlights

  • During term time you will support the everyday running of the school as a 'gappie' assistant, following a busy timetable supervising break times, lunch queues and assisting teachers both in class and on the sports field
  • The schools are boarding schools, so the students live in houses on campus - you’ll live on campus too and help supervise the students in all kinds of activities and in their free time
  • Any special skills that you have, such as computer skills or sports skills, will come in very useful in your new 'gappie' role
  • During the holidays you will enjoy time away from the school and get the chance to explore amazing Australia! We can arrange discounted tours and travel for you before you go, or you can book locally
  • This is a really inspiring job role, as you will be influencing the bright young students of Australia at some of the most prestigious schools Down Under
