Overseas GAP Placement

All Saints' College Bathurst has been sending students overseas on GAP placement for the last 19 years. It began as an offshoot of the Britain-Australia Society (the GAP Scheme). Recently students from ASC have been given placements in schools in the UK, America and Zimbabwe. A GAP Placement provides students leaving Year 12 with the opportunities of working and travelling overseas before they begin their tertiary education. A GAP placement is provided over a 12 month period.

Information for overseas students to participate in a GAP year at All Saints' College Bathurst

As a Gap Student, you are required to commit yourself to a year at All Saints' College Bathurst. The year for Gap students from the Northern Hemisphere starts in our third term, which commences in July and finishes at the end of the second term the following year, which is in June. Those from the Southern Hemisphere start at the commencement of the first term at the end of January and finish with Speech Day at the beginning of December.

While working at ASC your duties would be varied. You would spend much of your time in the Junior School as a Teacher's Assistant working with four to ten-year-olds. But there are other areas of the school where gappies work such as coaching sporting teams, supervising junior music practice, boarding house duties and some clerical duties. Whenever possible you would accompany excursions and camps throughout the year to let you see as much as possible of our part of Australia.

The College provides full board and lodgings during term time and a fortnightly wage throughout the year.

Applications for a gap position at ASC are invited from final year students who are fluent in English from any country in the world. These applications should include the following:

1. Your name and home address
2. Your school and its address
3. The subjects you are studying
4. The positions of responsibility you hold in your present school
5. Your interests and strengths
6. Name and contact details of the Head of your school
7. The name, address and contact details of two referees

Please email your application to the Gap Coordinator, Mrs Lisa Ellery at:
