"Famous teachers are not born, but polished in countless hours." NetEase Youdao Assistant Vice President and General Manager of Youdao High School Department Jiang Yeguang said.
Looking at the education industry, high-quality teachers have always been a scarce resource. However, behind high-quality teaching courses, a stable, excellent and constantly improving teaching team is needed. Previously, the online education industry has not formed a good teaching talent training system. The competition for famous teachers in the industry is fierce. It is not new to dig up one million famous teachers. The role of large class lecturer has entered the high-paid elite group. According to statistics, among the K12 lecturers of Youdao's excellent class in 2019, 45% of teachers have an annual salary of more than 1 million. And this data is also dynamically improving along with the expansion of the scale of courses.
Jiang Yeguang believes that by investing heavily in tapping the potential of newcomers, the famous teachers he cultivated will be more stable and able to develop a more comprehensive and excellent team of famous teachers. For this reason, Youdao Quality Course has formulated a complete training system for 2021 freshmen, focusing on values, basic teaching skills, and establishing value standards. After entering the subject group, new teachers will be trained with the help of the team, and the time cost of training a keynote teacher is 6 months or more.
"High salaries only allow high-quality talents to get equal returns. The more important premise here is that graduates must really love the education industry." He said. (Li Qi)
