The Director of Studies (DOS) is in charge of the academics and academic team (TEFL teachers). They ensure that students are classed appropriately, and placed in the right level with similar ages and different nationalities. They ensure the teachers prepare for their lessons to a high standard. They are responsible for observing the teachers at least twice during their employment, and for giving constructive feedback of the observation. They aid the teachers in their schemes of work and lesson planning and hold workshops for the teachers once a week. These workshops should relate to something that has come up through their observations and they feel needs addressing, or some requested input by teachers. The DOS must also be highly energetic, personable, well organised, good at multi-tasking and have to work well under pressure.
