What courses do we teach?
Orientation and training upon arrival?

The orientation period will be held in your first week of working at Fisher's SuperKids. We will personally welcome you upon arrival at the airport. Once you've had some time to settle in and are ready to begin your contract, you will be invited to a welcome meeting with the FSEC management team.
Orientation will include:
Academic training regarding curriculum, classroom management skills, lesson planning, student objectives, etc.
Department meetings to familiarize yourself with the company culture, classroom set-up, and co-workers
HR support with paperwork and Teacher Care support with banking, health insurance, and any other personal needs
*The length of the orientation period will depend on past ESL teaching experience and training needs. Please note that the orientation period is unpaid.

Academic guidance and support?
The Academic Department at Fisher's SuperKids includes a foreign training manager, who is solely responsible for the academic well-being and success of our teachers. What's more, Vietnamese managers are always on-call to help foreign teachers work and effectively communicate with their Vietnamese teaching assistants ("Vietnamese Partners," or "VP's"). Together, our training manager and Vietnamese managers, can offer any assistance and/or guidance needed when it comes to teaching—from lesson planning and activity ideas, to help with struggling students and communicating with parents. The list goes on!
Put simply, our academic team's number one goal is to support our teachers' academic needs—whenever and wherever. As such, members of the Academic Department will always be available to help answer questions and offer guidance. This means that academic managers can always help facilitate new opportunities for professional development workshops and co-teacher observations as well.
