ESL - Working Holiday Visa Australia
The programme
This programme allows you to significantly improve your English level – especially your communication skills – during a paid working experience in a hotel or a holiday resort. After a minimum 5-week English course to obtain an intermediate level (minimum), you can move to the location of your job to start working! Jobs are offered in 4- and 5-star hotels and resorts in Australia. You’ll work with a team in housekeeping, in the kitchen or in the dining room. It’s important to note that your job and location will be based on your work experience, English level and the jobs available at the time. If you prefer, you can also take a break to travel after you finish your course and before you start working. Students normally begin their placements 4-6 weeks after completing the English course.
