The British Au Pair Agencies Association (BAPAA) is the only recognised Trade Association for the au pair industry in Britain. This organisation was formed in 2003, on a non-commercial basis, with the purpose of setting standards for the au pair industry and protecting the au pair experience as a rewarding cultural exchange programme.
Members must meet firm business and ethical standards and, in turn, agree to abide by BAPAA’s Code of Conduct, which signifies competence, fair dealing and high integrity.
We are a network of experienced like-minded professionals and believe that self-regulation is the best means by which to uphold standards within our industry.
The members of BAPAA’s Executive Committee give up their time and work together to promote the future of the au pair programme in the UK, in the firm belief that:
The BAPAA Executive Committee is responsible for the affairs of BAPAA and consists of the Chairperson, the Treasurer and up to 6 members. Elections for the Executive Committee take place at the BAPAA Annual General Meeting.
Association Secretary from 2006 – Liz Curtis
