We check for 3 skills and make sure that space and hygiene conditions are provided for.

Math ability : Cuemath teacher partners are required to handle the responsibilities of delivering learning outcomes to students by delivering the program. Therefore we check for proficiency with Math for teaching high school level classes.

Empathy with children : At Cuemath, we believe that knowing math is not enough to teach math to children, you must also have an ability to work well with children and to motivate them to learn. These attributes ensure that teachers deliver learning outcomes consistently.

Communicate effectively with parents : Teachers also need to work along with the Cuemath team to grow their learning centre by gathering enrolments from their vicinity. For this the ability to communicate well is required.  

Space and Hygiene : Sufficient space at home to accommodate 6 students for running the centre.

WHAT ARE THE QUALIFYING CRITERIA TO BE SHORTLISTED FOR TRAINING?


Before we begin the process we assess the following and follow it up with a telephonic screening.

 1 The applicant’s education qualifications
 2 Time commitment from the applicant, up to 6 students at a time
 3 Continuity of the centre : Will the applicant continue for a sufficient period


 The second level of shortlisting will be through a telephonic interview where one of our associates will have a detailed conversation about the role requirements and assess if the applicant fits the requirements.

The applicants are also briefed about the details on revenue, growth and management of the centre etc. The applicant’s understanding and agreement to these details is very important to make the decision of continuing the Cuemath journey.

WHAT WILL BE CHECKED IN THE TELEPHONIC SCREENING?

3 How much do you know about Cuemath?
4 Do you have any issues with any of the terms and conditions shared?


DO I NEED TO PAY? HOW MUCH? WHY?

Once registered, the teachers will need to complete a training course to understand the job responsibilities and acquire the additional skills to establish and manage the learning centre. At the time of registration you will need to pay a fee of Rs 9990.

The Rs 9990 payment is like an Earnest Money deposit and designed to make sure that only committed teachers progress into training, as the entire cost of the training is borne by Cuemath.
