Gogokid Application Process
The Gogokid application process is pretty straight forward.
Enter your basic information here. When you pass the basic information stage, you will be asked to submit a recorded interview video.
You will have to pretend to teach the ESL lesson material to a child for the recorded demo. Make sure you read all the documentation and follow the tips and guidelines, to pass this process.
The final step will involve some quick training and contract signing. Teachers can complete the application process as fast as they would like!
Alternatively, teachers can complete the interview with a real interviewer instead of doing a recording.
Do applicants need a TESOL course to apply to Gogokid?
Applicants can apply to Gogokid and complete the interview without doing the TESOL course. However, new teachers may receive a lower starting pay without this certification. New teachers need to complete the certification before teaching their first student anyway, so it is better to get the TESOL certificate before applying for the interview. Then, complete your first month and avail of the Gogokid signup bonus.
