Apprentices

A New Generation Of Private Service Professional For Today's Contemporary Family

Taking applications now - earn excellent compensation while you the learn skills needed to work for the world's wealthiest families or corporations.
Your paid apprenticeship will start you out in one-year live-in positions across the USA with more than minimum wage hourly pay free room, board and round trip airfare. Apprentices receive two full days off weekly (usually weekends), five paid holidays, and a week's paid vacation, giving you the ability to explore and enjoy the cities near where you are placed.
All training families are screened, and only those who can offer the best apprentice experience are accepted into the program. Training families range from those with school age kids, to active empty nesters, to dual income no kid families, and single individuals with busy lives. You decide which family you will be placed with.
As an apprentice in the Sterling Academy program, you'll start by learning the basics of a household assistant (you'll be a beginner after all). Assisting around the house, dropping off kids at school, running errands, doing laundry, daily tidying, cooking dinner twice a week, and other tasks are what you will be paid for.
Once a month you will be challenged to do a bigger organizing project for your training family and your end of the year project of writing a family/household manual to leave as a parting gift will let you use everything you've learned during your year as their apprentice.
You'll learn first aid, CPR, basic life support and review defensive driving skills. Throughout your training year, you'll acquire skills in adaptability, professionalism, discretion, codes of conduct, problem-solving, etiquette, teamwork, security awareness and more, giving you a good foundation in skills needed to offer high-level assistance in any career. Additionally, you'll receive online Microsoft OneNote training and other ongoing education.

Sterling Academy apprentices also have private access to live group web chats with professional celebrity personal assistants, butlers, executive housekeepers, close protection agents (bodyguards), private chefs, career nannies, estate managers and others who work for some of the world's wealthiest families so you can see if a career in personal service is for you. If it is, (and we hope it will be), at the end of your successful apprentice year, you'll receive assistance with resume writing and future job placement through Lifestyle Resources - Sterling Staff Division,(our parent company). Lifestyle Resources is known in the luxury and lifestyle community as "the source" for the highest level of private service staff and places staff in the homes, yachts, and planes of High Net Worth employers worldwide.
