Calling all EFL Teachers!
Make sure to AVOID VACANCES EDUCATIVES (EFL / rip off school)
they have no idea what they are doing. no materials, no photocopier, no pens, paper, books, plan, person in charge, organisation, enough teachers..... no idea at all.
Two of us worked for them for one week, it was the most stressful, badly run 'school' I have ever taught at (actually a youth hostel in the middle of nowhere with no proper classrooms). Due to the trouble we had to go through (for example walking three miles to the nearest village to make photocopies and writing our own syllabus) and having to do the work of three teachers, we were promised a raise and expenses. This turned out to be a lie. It then took us a month of emails, long distance phone calls and hassle to get paid anything at all.
What we were finally paid was £60 less than the bare minimum agreed, travel expenses were not met as promised.
In short, avoid these goons at all cost! Stressful, wasted work for next to no money! Who needs the hassle!
Phew! ok, enjoy your summers.......
