I am a teaching assistant here, and I have been treated very well so far. I don't know about the other teachers that had worked here many years ago, but almost every teacher, both full time and part time, is very satisfied. Maybe you should come and see for yourself.

Now, first thing first. I am a former employee so some may say this might make this review biased. This is not what I am after, I just don't want anyone else to get caught out as I did.

The good ie the work : the schools that Kella send you to aren't to bad and the kids and the teaching part of it are great. I really can't fault them.

The bad ie Kella Management : they come across as really professional on the first few meetings but from there it just goes downhill. The only reason they have a few school contacts is that the owner has friends in the Education Department that have pulled a few strings for her.

Kella offer great money on the first few meetings but then the excuses start to roll in - oh, the classes are smaller then normal so I can't pay you as much; oh, your teaching primary school and I was talking about high school for that wage; the school isn't giving me as much anymore etc etc etc.

Lack of resources and mis-information is their most consistent thing. They tell you that you are teaching one thing to one class (age group etc) and then when you turn up it is something completely different to a completely different group, so there goes all your preperation.

Another thing they dangle out is the carrot of the work permit and visa. Of course never materialises and I don't know anyone who has ever worked for them who got this magical thing that was promised.

So overall I'd give the kids and schools a 6 out of 10 but Kella as an employer would be scraping to get a 2 out of 10. Again, this isn't a disgruntled ex-employee bagging them (I have gone on to bigger and better things, I learnt a lot from them - good and bad stuff) but just a review so that others who might be thinking of working for them can make a better, more informed decision than I did.

I agree with what you've said the Directors name is Mrs. Hieu. She only cares about making money and not her employees or the kids who pays. Do not work for the Kella group if you want to be treated fairly!

I have have read the reviews with some interest and although I do not work for Kella, I do now have experience of them. The staff at Kella are really nice but having said that the Director of this company is really quite obtuse, she has no regards to common curtesy, which even makes her staff cringe. It is not a company I would want to work for for that and only that reason.

hi there. ive been working for kella now for about 5 years. it suits me down to the ground. working mornings and afternoons gives me the free time i like in the evenings and the weekends. i get left to teach in my own style, and get to teach grade 10 and 11 (about 16 years old) which i find to be more fun than younger kids. for an experienced teacher who is confident of their ability and doesnt need much support, this job is a winner.
