Clifford International School, Guangzhou, People's Republic of China.

Institute Review
Not interested in education only the revenue generated by the headcount . A lot of teachers that care but are given a poor curriculum to facilitate. Curriculum does not meet student needs or scaffold onto prior learning.
The pros
The teachers apartments are OK and the pay is not the worst in China....Not the place for an NQT and the pay scale for entry level is very poor.
The cons
Western curriculum that washes over the EAL students. There are at least 30 students to a class and we are talking 30 non-native English speakers. TA's for the high level grades ( 1-2 of 5) in the elementary bilingual are able. 3,4 and 5 are poor students that are badly behaved and the TA's are basically an extra badly behaved student. Micro managed like you wouldn't believe with an extremely high workload.
Advice to Management
Do a practical post grad in the UK like a PGCE...not an online masters in education (writing ten essays)
Institution Location
Clifford Estates, Guangzhou, Guangdong Province, People’s Republic of China, 511495.
Relationship
Taught there 2016-17. High turnover of teachers....
