FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q1. How varied Teaching Experience does WAVE Faculty has?
Ans. Teachers at WAVE bring along a wide range of teaching experience: It varies from 2 years to 15 years. Our young teachers bring in a very high level of interaction with students, build rapport & solve doubts intricately. Our experienced teachers are endowed with rich teaching knowledge during their lectures, thus, helping students build stronger concepts and get an exposure of all kinds of questions that can probably be asked in the exams.
New recruits have to undergo a systematic training regime before they start taking classes. The training given to the teachers provides them with an edge and grooms them in a way that sets us apart from other institutes. Other institutes pick up teachers from anywhere and send them to the class without sharpening their teaching abilities. But here at WAVE, each and every faculty has to undergo a training schedule of 3 months. The training imparted includes development and sharpening of skills like:
1. Subject Matter Expertise,
2. Blackboard writing and presentation,
3. Audibility of voice, and their body language while teaching,
4. Interaction level with students while answering their queries,
5. Demo lectures with senior staff for content approval,
6. Training is a way towards perfection, and requirements of WAVE, so that this training overcomes the variation in experiences and/or qualifications.
Q2. What are the selection criteria of Faculty at WAVE?
Ans. The faculty is selected through an exhaustive selection process that comprises of:
• Written Test
• Demo Lecture with HODs
• Personal Interview with MD
• Final Selection & Offer Letter
Suppose, if 100 people turn up for the interview, usually two of them are able to make it through finally. The rest candidates get filtered off in the selection process. After this tough and tedious selection process, the candidates are put to undergo training where their skills are polished. Freshers are also recruited from colleges like IITs & NITs through campus selection. Selections are also made from other such premier institutes across India.
Q3. What distinguishes WAVE in recruitment from the rest?
Ans. We keep on experimenting with the selection process rather than sticking to the stereotype model of the selection. We have the following distinguishing features.
Advantages of fresher: We offer equal opportunities to fresher because they are energetic, vibrant and have the capability to work hard with innovative methodologies. They can generate the interest of students in subject and maintain a quick & easy rapport with them.
Our teacher recruitment exercise is open 24 X 7 throughout the year because it is very challenging to select competent teachers as it takes a lot of time. In fact, efficient teachers to teach for the exams like JEE and AIPMT/AIIMS are very rare in the market.
With the ever increasing of trust of students in brand WAVE, we do not compromise on quality. Hence, we keep conducting interviews to recruit new teachers every day.
Most of the Franchises is are being provided with teacher support from AESPL, so that teaching quality remains of high standards at all centres.

Therefore as per the requirement, availability and experience of teachers and the requirement of students, teachers are assigned to different batches.
Q5. Which centre of WAVE does have the best faculty?
Ans. As far as the competent faculty is concerned, every centre has best faculties because we have maintained uniformity in selection and training of faculties. The best and the average teachers have been classified by the students because the mode of teaching varies from teacher to teacher.
