Homestay Families needed
Sep 19, 2017

Homestay Families needed, Aotea College's International Programme is expanding! As a result we are looking for more people willing to act as homestay parents and  welcome international students into their homes and families.A key requirement of homestay families is that you can provide a student with their own room. Ministry of Education rules also require that you will need to are interviewed in your home and pass a police check. Your student will be a part of your family, take part in family life and of course follow the same rules. The time international students spend with you can often be life changing for them, and your family can make a life long friend, In 2018 we will be welcoming students from a number of countries including Japan, Thailand, Vietnam, Germany and Italy. They will stay for different lengths of time so you can indicate whether you are happier with long stay students (somewhere between 3 months and a year) or short stay students (3-5 weeks). Homestay parents receive a weekly homestay payment of $240.00 which covers food and other in house expenses.If you need more information or want to make a time for an interview please contact Amanda Dickens (Homestay Manager) on 027 555 8605 or Please pass on this information to neighbours, friends, and family if you think you know someone who would enjoy the job.
