Institute Review
the institute is run in two parts. Chinese Middle School and then the High School, which is the home of the inexperienced Canadian teachers. If you are an ESL teacher you will be housed in the Middle School section. Where you can expect umpteen staff meetings per semester, poorly behaved students who are disenfranchised and only interested in getting out of there into the Canadian part. It is universally known as 'BC'. To work in this part of the school a person really needs to have serious patience or is in need of work (more on that in a moment).

The high school section known as BC has basically evolved over time since about 2007. Since 2016 it has branched out into its own little sphere but everyone knows that it is just a case of ESL OR BC. The BC is seen as the golden gate whilst ESL is seen as skid row.

About the conditions. People who work here are really scared of being fired. There are a number of reasons for that but the main one is the management is top down and a case of snitch culture. It means to stay working in this school either you become like that or become a person who does it to your colleagues.

Staff turnover per annum is ridiculous.

The location is a waste of life if you are a person looking to work overseas in China. It is situated 65 km from Shanghai and Suzhou (in either direction). It is a boarding school in the middle of knowhere.

Salary

BC after tax and deductions about 18,000
ESL - new comers 15,000 top rate 19,000
Advice to Management
recognition of employees who put a lot of time in. not base it on back stabbing and hear say.
