What Employees Say
I have been working at Educastream part-time for more than a year
- Flexible hours -As long as you give enough notice, you can usually cancel lessons - Some interesting topics - I have learnt a lot of general knowledge from the presentations - You get paid even... when pupils don't show up so you essentially can get paid to do something else as long as you stay on the computer - Generally very friendly staff members who are mostly quite understanding -Good pay - £10/hour lessons - Cancellations less than 3 hrs before are fully remunerated
- Lessons can get quite repetitive - they update the topics every couple of months so you may unluckily end up teaching the same lesson over 20 times - Technical difficulties - sometimes on the... pupil's side although you are not scolded for these - increasingly my computer has been having difficulties which can be frustrating as it is very random when it occurs and you aren't paid for these - A lot of calls from the company to take on extra lessons - can get annoying when you are busy and keep being phoned - A few times I feel that I have been guilt-tripped into lessons by stressed staff when it hasn't really been beneficial for me to take them and I've tried to make that clear - Cancellations from pupils can be common
Advice to Management
- Communicate better with teachers -Let teachers speak with each other to share information - Respond to emails more -Allow more correspondence with pupils to follow up on things they need to do
