The Home Affairs Training Academy, or HATA, delivers courses designed specifically for anyone working in a domestic environment such as nannies, housekeepers, maternity nurses, doulas, house managers and so on.
Although anyone can call themselves a nanny or housekeeper, many people working in such positions treat these jobs as careers. In the same way as any other career, good training leads to positive personal development, which in turn leads to expertise, respect and better employability.
This is no different to the career path of, say, a project manager or a nutritionist. Such professions do not require formal training, but many people in these professions do take it upon themselves to get trained for exactly the same reasons.
HATA now provide several different courses. Our aim is to keep adding to the list of available course so that we cover all aspects of domestic professional training. We are also keen to making this a recognised profession and will help to campaign to this end as opportunities arise.
