Life after Brexit
Hope you are all having a great start to the month of February 2020.
Now that Brexit has officially taken place, things are becoming a bit more clearer as to where the future of au pairs and new placements stand in the UK. Please do read this article below, it states that nothing will change till December 2020. Au pairs have the freedom of movement to come and go from Europe with an ID card until the end of 2020, when the transition period ends. The EHIC is still applicable as well. We are sure the government will recognise this an important cultural exchange programme and there will not make many major changes.
Given the assurance above, I hope this encourages more au pairs to apply through their agents, more families to continue looking for an au pair, and all our agents to continue sending us plenty more files!
We hope this has given you some reassurance, and we shall keep you all updated on any further news and changes.
With Best Wishes
The Team at Childcare International
