Our Governess Training Course explains everything you need to know about working as a governess with a high-profile family in the UK or overseas.

Teachers or nannies who have the experience to graduate to a governess role, but who have not worked as a governess in a VIP household, will find this course especially valuable. The recruitment process will be explained in full and you will have a one-on-one session, where you can ask as many questions as you like. Attending will also improve your prospects of being selected by clients for interview (many tell us they prefer candidates who have completed the course). Attending our one-day training session can give you the best chance of gaining one of our top positions.

Salaries for governesses are higher than those for nannies and can typically be around £1,000 a week. This reflects the high standards offered in care and education by a governess, with good candidates in constant demand from our clients. Conditions of work and additional perks are often standard, and many households are fully staffed.

On completion of this course, every candidate is provided with a certificate.

  1. What is a governess?
