ECAPS – Revised guidelines booklet published
The European Committee for Au Pair Standards (ECAPS) has just published a revised booklet containing standardised definitions for au pairs, host families, au pair agencies and national au pair associations in order to create a common standard for the the developments of quality au pair programmes throughout Europe.
With these guidelines as a basis, ECAPS looks to engage in a dialogue on a European level to ascertain the fact that au pairing is considered a youth cultural exchange programme, and not as employment.
The booklet is currently available in English and will be made available in multiple languages.
