Fast-paced but very supportive

No two days are the same. The work is fast-paced and challenging in a positive way. Very supportive environment with colleagues always willing to help you out. The owner pushes you to be the best version of yourself and is receptive to your ideas and thoughts. She is a great trainer! The teachers are very professional and friendly who have a lot experience in their fields. They go the extra mile to help the students achieve their potential. I enjoy getting to know the students and families as well.

Pros

Friendly and supportive staff and teachers

Cons

It is important to be professional and passionate about teaching and at Global Education Academy tutors are experts in the curriculum and teach using the same methods that children learn in the classroom.

Supportive workplace with collaborative colleagues

As a new staff member of GEA, I felt very welcomed by my colleagues. Everyone is very friendly and supportive. I was able to settle into the new work environment very quickly. At GEA, they provide quality resources to help students understand English and Mathematical concepts more easily. It's great to see that the students dissect the questions and build their understanding and problem-solving skills. I highly recommended anyone to work at GEA.

Pros

Professional team, job security, flexible work hours

Challenging and Collaborative enviroment

This job has challenged me in many ways and greatly improved my teaching. The owner has been very supportive with my growth and it has been a great learning experience working under her. The rest of the team are very collaborative and supportive too, which has been incredibly helpful over the last year in the everchanging teaching environment brought about by the pandemic.

Bad place to work

GEA does not treat employees correctly. While the administration are great at their job the management do not know how to run a business with employees. Parent and student complaints are treated as gospel even if they are unreasonable or covering up poor student performance. Students are trained to pass the GEA units but not given a wider education.

Cons

Official response from Global Education Academy

9 April 2021
At GEA we have high standards of employees (admin and teachers). To keep the high quality promised to parents and students, we need to ensure the quality of teaching; methodology and delivery. Hence, it is inevitable, sometimes, to let staff go especially following multiple attempts to support and help them lift their performance.

Collaboration and Job Security

My job entails a lot of challenges especially when confronted by this unprecedented pandemic but the owner and the whole team are collaborative and supportive. The owner communicates with transparency and treats her team with equality. It is always nice to sit down with her and learn something new. She knows how to solicit opinions and at the same time empower people to work efficiently. She knows how to listen to her employees. She tries to instill a culture of optimism, accountability, transparancy and accomodating kind of communication as well as excellence in what we do.

Rewarding workplace

I find Global Education Academy to be a highly rewarding job. I have worked as a teacher and an administrator, and it has been a positive experience for me. The staff are friendly and welcoming to new team members. There is a close knit work culture and I always feel supported in my work. I would suggest this employer to any fully qualified teachers who are looking for rewarding work outside of the standard classroom model. There is room for professional growth and my professional experience is always respected.

Pros

Fantastic team

Fantastic place to work

Global Education Academy is a great place to work. I'm based at the Kogarah campus and have been employed there for almost 4 years now. The flexible hours work well for me and the culture of the place is awesome. I would highly recommend Global Education Academy for anyone looking for a job in a fun, dynamic work environment.

It's not what it seems

The school looks professional: everyone employed is required to wear uniform, stationery and materials are provided, the classrooms are also in good condition. You won't get a job there, however, if you don't have your own ABN. I don't believe it is the correct arrangement - for the size of such college tutors definitely should be employees, not contractors. Presumably, the cornerstone of this tutoring school, what sets it apart from others is applying CLT (Cognitive Load Theory), which, however, does not seem to be reflected in the structure of materials used - no obvious fragmenting or scaffolding of information presented. This break-down into "digestible" chunks does not seem to happen in the teaching I had observed either. Work-life balance is good, and so is the location - 5 mins from the train station. As classes are run after school (3:30-7:30), usually 4:00-6:00pm, it is possible to combine your regular work (if you are employed at primary or high school for example) and at Global Education Academy. I hope other teachers feel valued and supported. I certainly was not, the feeling I had was that it is a well-oiled machine: no staff interactions, zero emotions. If one of the parts (staff) experiences some difficulty, a replacement is easily available. The administrator, receptionist and overall school manager is the owner's daughter, which can be helpful on some occasions and counterproductive on others. The most enjoyable part of the job was the actual teaching and learning about my students: what they know, where they need to be, identifying the gap and addressing - 

Pros

professional presentation, keen students, hours

Cons

management, workplace culture, job security
