TFA Services for Schools
You can download a copy of our professional client school brochure to learn more about the professional teacher recruitment service we provide. Below we have listed some of the main elements of our service that we can provide for your school.
Initial School Visit
To enable us to build a long and trusted partnership with your school, we always like to visit your school and meet with your management team so we can better understand the set up at your school. This allows us to promote the school in a very effective manner and choose the right teacher candidate profiles to send you during your recruitment drive. We also try to set up regular Skype meetings between TFA senior management and your own management team at your school.
We have found this personal approach always results in a very high success rate. This is the reason why many of our client schools hire us exclusively, in a lot of cases, to source quality teachers for them throughout the year.
We are involved in helping our client schools in many aspects of the hiring process including screening interviews with prospective teachers, arranging interviews between the applicant and the school, visa application assistance, advice with flight arrangements and of course post-arrival support around the clock for the teacher when they arrive at your school.
We make a point of getting in contact with our teachers during their first week and making sure everything goes smoothly for both teacher and school. We are in regular contact with both parties throughout the course of the 12-24 month long contract to ensure everything works out. A large percentage of our teachers end up signing for a second year with the school we place them in so schools and organisations can look at this as a smart long term investment.
We screen all of our teachers through a 30-45 minute Skype web-cam interview, reference checking and regular contact via email. We always endeavour to only present a choice of quality applicants to all of our schools when they are looking to recruit. We ensure that any potential teacher we represent has the right character for teaching at your school and is positive and enthusiastic about coming to teach in Asia.
We have learnt from experience that if we don’t sense this enthusiasm during our initial contact with potential teachers, we don’t tend to continue working with those people.
So you can be assured that all of our teachers are of a very high quality and are excited about the experience of coming to teach in Asia. When you find a teacher that you believe would be a good match for your school and you are interested in hiring, we will arrange an interview between you and the applicant.
Regular Follow-up Checks
We will be in constant contact with our schools and the relevant teachers to ensure everything is going smoothly. If any problems arise, we are available to help sort any issues out. We always have a proactive approach and we like to conduct regular follow-up checks with our schools to gauge their satisfaction levels with both our overall service and their teacher. Through these checks we aim to improve your overall satisfaction with our services. A large percentage of our current business is actually through repeat recruiting for the same schools which demonstrates that we value our relationships with any school that we have on our books.
We usually offer a 90-day guarantee on our teacher placements but it depends on each individual agreement we have with our client schools. This covers the school in the event of a teacher/school relationship terminating within the 90-day period (teacher quits or teacher is sacked). This is very rare with any of our teachers. We like to think we manage any problems so that they never get to that stage but if it does occur, we will find an immediate replacement teacher free of charge or return our fee in full. It should be noted that we will have separate agreements with each school or organisation so it may differ from what is stated above.
