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.

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.

Great place to work!

I really enjoy working at Global Education Academy. It's a fast-paced environment that keeps me on my toes. The teachers, admin staff and management are all lovely and approachable and we all get along really well. I feel very supported here and know I can approach management if I have any concerns.


supportive work environment, flexible working hours, dynamic environment

Not a good place to work

- very high staff turnover - management unorganised - no appreciation for hard work - I would not recommend working here (administration or teaching)

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 -
