Below is the official information directly from the VIPKID freshdesk… This is exciting stuff and read it carefully.
I’m also attaching two pdf files about the recruitment process. Not everyone is a great candidate, but it is worth trying to get an interview and passing. I’ve really enjoyed this job and I have to say I wasn’t excited to do this. It was hard for me to change me schedule. I’m a real night owl and love to stay up late. So I had to change my schedule just a bit. So instead of being up until 2 am and getting up at 10, I’ve had to change to be in bed at exactly 1 am or earlier and be up by 7:30-8:00am most days. Hey it works and I do get enough sleep according to my fit bit. lol
Here’s some information.

June 19 – Changes to the VIPKID Recruitment Process

Changes to the VIPKID Recruitment process
In the current process, for candidates to pass the mock class stage, they have to be able to teach all levels well from the start. This is not easy to accomplish, and we often find candidates that are stronger in either lower or upper levels, but not both. We hope that this change can enable more amazing candidates to join our platform! Furthermore, it is sometimes difficult for new teachers to teach all levels once they start at VIPKID, so we hope that these changes ensure a better transition:
1) Level-Specific Mock Classes
From now on, after the mock class stage, candidates will be certified to teach specific levels based on their mock class performance.
2) The old Mock Class 2 PPT will be the new mock class 1 PPT.
Candidates start by teaching the Letter X PPT for 12 minutes, have 10 to 15 minutes for feedback, then teach Level 5 PPT also wrapping up with a feedback for this level. They will be assessed with two different rubrics. If they pass for Beginner levels, they will start teaching these levels and after 100 classes, they may apply for a new level certification. The same happens in case they pass for Intermediate levels. If none of the levels’ performance stood out, they will only be invited for a second Mock Class.
The results of the mock class 1 can be:
-Pass both levels: candidate is able to teach both lower and upper level classes
-Pass only lower level: candidate is able to teach only lower level classes
-Pass only upper level: candidate is able to teach only upper level classes
-Go to Mock Class 2: we would like the candidate to take another mock class in the level that the candidate performed best during mock class 1.
3) Mock Class 2 PPT will be level specific:
-If best performance in MC 1 was lower level, candidates will teach a Level 2 class. The class will be Letter P.
-If best performance in MC 1 was upper level, candidates will teach an upper level class. The class will be Earth, our Home, which is about environmental protection.
The results of the Mock Class 2 can be:
-Pass to teach either lower or upper level, depending on the Mock Class 2 that the candidate just taught
There were also other improvements. Candidates will receive feedback when they pass OR fail the process so that they can improve if they want to reapply.
If anyone has any questions, feel free to comment. I’m glad to give pointers or share product ideas for class or whatever. Ask away!
