Online PR News – 07-February-2013 – Liverpool, Merseyside – Final exams are looming, and for many the sweet reward of a gap year beckons afterwards. Smaller Earth are offering some fantastic programmes still with availability for those who are struggling to decide.
For those who have an interest in winter sports, Canada is a perfect Gap Year Travel destination. Spending 6-12 months working during the Canadian ski season of November to late May, there are a variety of roles to allow for both work and travel abroad. Roles range from on-piste lift and gondola operator positions, to hotel front desk and housekeeping. Shared accommodation and a busy social calendar put on exclusively for staff will ensure everyone settles in and feels part of a big family immediately.
For those more accustomed to a warmer climate, embarking on a summer position during gap year travel in Canada may be a good idea. Smaller Earth programs will put in all of the hard graft to organise the trip, including securing a role - usually within the leisure or hospitality industry - to learn in an immersive way about the lifestyles of the inhabitants of the 2nd largest country in the world!
Hungary Football Academy
Staying closer to home, this program is perfect for those looking to enhance a CV with experience of Volunteering Abroad. Working with B qualified UEFA coaches, 2 or 4 week programs provide intensive training and development of existing coaching skills. There is even an opportunity to gain an accredited qualification on completion. With start dates throughout the year, this is a flexible yet highly valuable opportunity and a perfect way to kick off a travelling holiday around Europe.
Au Pair Work in China
To gain a unique experience of Chinese culture, the Smaller Earth Au Pair program must be a consideration. Not only gaining the opportunity to explore the fascinating history of China, a 3 or 6 month program is fully inclusive of return flights, Mandarin language classes and access to cultural courses. Food and board is taken with the host family, who Smaller Earth carefully match to each applicant. To help settle inevitable nerves at such an impending culture shock, on arrival everyone partakes in a 3-day orientation and training camp.
Working on a ranch or farm in Australia is a fantastically well paid working holiday. After an initial week of ultimate training, participants go off to spend time using their skills riding for a polo yard or operating machinery on a working farm whilst soaking up the atmosphere of the outback.
Smaller Earth UK offer a wide range of unique Gap Year Programs throughout the world including volunteer conservation work and work and travel abroad programs.
