Our Hiring Process
To ensure a high quality education for our students, all applicants undergo a rigorous and detailed hiring process. Our selection process is unique and aligns with the highest standards that we hold for our staff. The process helps us determine if you’re the right fit for Foundation Academies, and also helps you to determine if Foundation Academies is the right fit for you.
Here’s what you can expect as an applicant:
Step 1: Application Review
Your resume and cover letter will be thoroughly reviewed to decide whether your qualifications are a strong match with our philosophy on education. If so, we will contact you via email with an invitation to a phone interview within 48 hours of your resume being reviewed. If you’re not selected for a phone interview, you’ll be notified via email.
Step 2: Phone Interview
Phone interviews are conducted by the Talent Team to further investigate your qualifications, experience, and perspectives on our culture and philosophy. The interviews take no longer than 30 minutes. Once your phone interview has been completed, you’ll be notified via email within 48 hours regarding your potential advancement to the next step - a semifinalist in-person interview.
Step 3: In-Person Interview
Based on the results of your phone interview, you as a semifinalist candidate may be invited for a series of in-person interviews to meet with our staff and faculty. In addition to your interview invitation, you’ll be asked to provide the following documents: official transcripts, performance evaluations from the last two years of employment if applicable, and copies of any certifications that you currently possess. Please note: some semifinalist interviews can be conducted all in one day, others may be conducted over two separate days.
Step 4: Demo Lessons/Performance Tasks
For teaching positions, you will conduct a demo lesson with our students in the appropriate grade and content. We will provide you with lesson objectives to create your demo lessons based on the content that students are currently learning.
For non-teaching positions, you will conduct a performance task that is relevant to the position for which you applied.
These demonstrations provide us the opportunity to determine how well you fit into our culture and provide you an inside look at our day-to-day life at Foundation Academies. Note: these demo lessons and performance tasks can take up to a full day. We encourage you to plan accordingly when invited.
We hope to make decisions in less than a week from the day of your demo lesson/interview.
Step 5: Professional Reference Check
Based on the review of your demo lessons/performance tasks, we will contact your professional references via email asking them to complete our reference check form. We will contact at least two of your past/current supervisors and three professionals.
Once reference checks are completed, the hiring manager will contact you via phone with an offer, or, the Talent Team will contact you in the event that you are not selected for the position, within 72 hours of your interview.
Once offered, all hired candidates are subject to a criminal background check and Mantoux (TB) test.
The hiring process is extensive, but this is because we only wish the best for our students.
