Would YOU work for 20K in London?

Well, would you? If you’re an EFL teacher you’d probably have to, but did you also know that – even as a Diploma-qualified Tefler with the following attributes, you may well have to!

• Experience of delivering examination classes ( FCE/CAE/CPE/IELTS) 
 • Experience of working in multilingual classroom 
 • Experience with continuous assessment, adapting lessons to meet individual needs, giving tutorials and setting learning goals 
 • Proficiency in time management and record keeping 
 • Can demonstrate a strong commitment to own CPD 
 • Confident with using IT in the classroom including IWBs
 • Flexibility and cultural awareness

Yes, step forward the Wimbledon School of English for advertising such a demanding job with so little reward!

I’m rather surprised, and not a little disappointed, that despite this very same school having won the highest of all possible marks in its recent British Council inspection, it’s still offering shit salaries for Dip teachers with oodles of experience.

 What’s worse, the ad makes no mention of how many of hours of classroom capers you’ll have to put in before they cough up that mighty 385 quid every week. If it’s around the 25 mark, that means you’ll be in effect working for something like a pisspoor 15 quid an hour!

Mind you, they do offer a free lunch. Whether you’re allowed a doggy-bag to help prevent yourself from starving to death on their shit salary is not clear, however. 

 Care to comment on that, Fiona Dunlop and Jane Dancaster?

Of course they're taking the piss. The school's Principal is Number 1 Big Cheese in English UK, who are dedicated to screwing as much out of teachers as they can. So what do you expect?

Danno said...

This lot are a bit up their own arse. Think they're the bees-knees when in fact they are just a small cut above the rest - especially when it comes to salaries!

It's outfits like WSE that have perfected the 'Tefl Trap' in the UK. They charge the students top dollar and just palm off their most important resource, the teachers, with mediocre salaries.

It's no wonder Dancaster is the toast of English UK - she's provided the template for lining the school owners' pockets and fleecing thousands of EFL teachers at the same time!

TBH I think 6th form colleges and adult education services have caught on to this trend.

Recently a couple of colleges in Manchester (big state funded ones) were advertising for full time ESOL tutors (1090 contact hours) and 37 hours you had to be there.

The experience and qualification requirements dwarfed those of this advert. The pay? £21,000 pro-rata of course as they don't want to pay you for the summer time ~ £15K

Time to enact those backup plans!

These places are paying less per hour than I earned in colleges when I was in the UK in 2004, and I didn't feel wealthy then. It's scary shit, especially when working for a demented thieving tosser like Paul Lowe might pay better and be less painful.

It is better than Dovenail House in Bristol. Run by Hungarians, it has just done a bunk with all the cash owing about £20,000 to the teachers. Bastards.

Fucking hellfire! Paul Lowe has a long -lost relation in Dundee.Go to Youtube and you will see what I mean when you search for 'Alfie Bucket O Shite.'

Vote Yes! said...

Well that's Tefl for you, a sad job for sad losers who can't even earn the same as a traffic warden, despite their degrees!

William Frederickson said...

Vote 'Yes' and take Wee Mad Alfie with you. "Bucket O'Shite' can be the new Scottish national anthem. It'd be more fitting,given the state that an independent Scotland will most likely be in.

That guy on the bench - could it just possibly be ... Paul Lowe?!?

Anonymous said...

How strange - no comment from the D-dykes, Dunlop and Dancaster.

Do they actually have NOTHING to say for once?!

William Fuckshitson said...

Don't know if the Harold Ramp on the bench is Paul Lowe,but with a special 'scratch 'n sniff'panel and the help of Ashley Arnold, Simon 'Pig-Fucker'Green or that slimy toilet-loiterer Robert Weeks,we could find out! All three of 'em had their noses and worse I suspect up Paul Lowe's arse-hole...

William Fuckshitson said...

...and as any fule kno,tramps tend to 'hum' a bit!

William Fuckstickson said...

Should anyone want something to laugh and point at this morning, check out 'Welcome to Windsor English' on Youtube. Paul Lowe telling lies as usual : whenever his gob opens.

I expected him to launch into a rant about how wonderful he is or the merits of 'long defuckation,' but he didn't. Hell's fucking bells, the Defuckator must be on some strong medication!

What a whitewash!!

Hi

How can I add a crap school onto the list?

I just had somebody offer me a whopping £7.25 an hour. I have no idea how he got a hold of my CV.

William Frederickson said...

Elsewhere that creepy little cockplug Simon Groin has set up a private consultancy specialising in talking drivel,sorry,employment consultancy.Possibly because a benefit claimant or two forced to deal with TWIN's applied shelf-stacking and practical tea-making courses offered to severely twat the little pidor...'Green Leaf'is the name of his latest venture. A better name might be 'Packet Of Cunt.'

William Shitcuntson said...

Sorry...'New Leaf.' Goddamned bad hangover today.In any case,a pile of shit however you look at it.

Delboy said...

Shocking language, William!

Surely 'PG Twits' would suffice?

Or 'Windsor Windbags'?

William Spastickson said...

Okay...what about 'A Fuck-Wit And A Bucket Of Shit?'Or 'A Smoothman With A Discreet Receptacle Of Ordure?' In any case,I find 'Packet Of Cunt' the most appropriate name for Groin-Fuckt's latest scam,ermmm...'venture.'It's probably what one may well end yelling after discovering that Groin-Fuckt has delivered pisspoor service.
