Countries: CanadaThinking of winning your way around Canada and North America during your Gap year? Why not do it with Letz Live? We could potentially offer you employment, free accommodation and food in addition to a weekly stipend to cover your adventures at one of Canada's most prestigious boarding schools. Interested?!? Don't delay - apply today!
As a School Assistant in a leading Canadian Boarding School, you will work alongside staff to teach and mentor students. Just as importantly, you will be immersed in the daily lives of locals in both the school and wider community. If you want to utilise or improve your French language skills, you can request to be placed in a school in Quebec.
There are no set formulas for the type of tasks you’ll be asked to do. Some schools may require you to be competent in a particular discipline. It may be on the sporting pitch, in the performing arts or in the classroom (maybe all three!). You may also be involved in other duties such as assisting the ground staff, tutoring individual students, escorting students to medical appointments, or staffing the reception desk. Whatever the situation, you’ll gain valuable work experience with a range of new challenges.
The more you embrace the challenges and responsibilities of your role, the more you will be rewarded. You may even accompany your students on trips to international destinations! Your accommodation and meals will be provided. In addition, you’ll receive a weekly allowance to cover incidentals and provide you with some spending money.
The schools in Canada are simply amazing. While some are conveniently located in large townships or cities, most are situated in regional surroundings that inspire an outdoor lifestyle. Skiing, snowboarding or hiking, you can find an outdoor activity year round.
A Gap Year is the perfect way to explore the world before settling in to your university studies or first full-time job. And a Letz Live Gap placement is the most economical way to do it! Best of all, the 24/7 support of the Letz Live crew ensures your experience is as safe as possible. We’re always on hand to offer ideas and advice.
