All of our EF Indonesia courses have an assessment element which needs to be marked by the class teacher. In addition to this, online progress reports are filled out usually every 2-3 months for each student in your group. The majority of the admin tasks are managed by EF Indonesia’s online student management system, ODIN+. You will be given full training on how to use this system during your probation period.
Once you have settled into teaching at EF Indonesia, you will start to do placement tests. When a new student joins EF Indonesia, they complete a written test and then are interviewed by a teacher. This helps determine their EF level. Towards the end of your probation period, you will be trained on how to conduct placement test interviews. You will be scheduled to do placement tests during your working hours.
Lifeclubs, school events and competitions are a regular feature of working at EF Indonesia. These are usually take place outside of class hours and often outside of the school. Lifeclubs are fun events where students get to practise speaking English in a more natural environment. Past events include, cake decorating, making chocolate, bowling, safari visit and scrapbook making. There are also regular English competitions held throughout the year including spelling bees, debates, story telling and essay writing compeitions. You maybe asked to help out with any of these events and other school promotional activities. Each teacher will be asked to undertake a maximum of eight additional working duties per contract year. This is for events or activities that take place outside of your regular working hours.
