The Morgan Mallet School Housekeeper/Nanny Training is a curriculum designed to help candidates learn how to effectively manage their future life as a housekeeper/nanny in a VIP family and luxury property. It is a comprehensive programme that covers many aspects of managing the upkeep of a property, chateau, villa, chalet, mansion or large luxury flat and managing children in their development and education.
The housekeeper/nanny training starts with an assessment of the future housekeeper/nanny's current situation with our training officer. This includes an assessment of the candidate's strengths and weaknesses, as well as communication and problem-solving skills. During this assessment, the candidate and the trainer will also discuss their goals and motivations. This is an important step in the process as it allows the candidate and our trainers to identify the skill areas to be developed and to create a suitable training plan.
The next step in the Housekeeper/Nanny training process is to create the application form (training agreement) and funding for the training. Our training officer will accompany you through these steps. See details below.
The third step of the process is the training course which consists of helping and accompanying the future housekeeper/nanny to develop skills during the 12 and a half days with two Morgan Mallet School trainers. See programme below.
Finally, the training process of the housekeeper/nanny ends with a review of the student's progress. During this phase, the future housekeeper/Nanny will discuss the successes and achievements they have made since the beginning of the training. This is the perfect time to celebrate the student's achievements.

A domestic/nanny is a person who is responsible for the care, education and focus of a family's children and the cleaning and maintenance of an upmarket property. These employees are usually employed by HNW or UHNW families.
Housekeepers/nannies are responsible for a variety of tasks related to the cleaning and maintenance of a house. This includes sweeping, vacuuming, dusting, polishing and scrubbing all surfaces.
This person is also responsible for the care and supervision of children in the absence and even during the presence of the parents, depending on the situation. He/she will be responsible for the physical and mental development of the children through play or external activities.
They may also be responsible for cleaning and organising the cupboards. Domestic workers may also be responsible for laundry, including hand washing, drying, folding and ironing clothes. They may also be asked to carry out minor repairs such as fixing broken items or changing light bulbs.
In addition to cleaning, housekeepers/nannies may also be asked to prepare meals and do shopping according to allergies and recommendations for children.
Housekeepers/nannies must be able to work independently, as they are responsible for a multitude of tasks without direct supervision. They must also be able to follow instructions and take initiative with the family and within the property.
