I'm not sure whether anyone else has had similar treatment to the following experience posted on the "Nominate a School for Blacklisting"
"I would like to nominate UKLA Academy in Bursa, Turkey. I had a position/contract with them that was to include a 200USD reimbursement for flight. About 24 hours before my flight departed, I received an email stating that my position was CANCELLED! The school then also refused to reimburse any part of my flight. Needless to say, I also lost time and wages since I had to start looking for another job all over again."
Possibly there's a good reason why the contract was pulled and nothing reimbursed. Such things as a bad reference or something unknown that happened between the school and the teacher after the job was offered, who knows.
Whatever it's certainly something that teachers should look out for and guard against with any job. UKLA Academy Bursa, Turkey do advertise a fair bit for teachers. One of their ads reads as follows and as you can see definitely states travel reimbursement:
- Native speakers of English
- Bachelor’s degree
- PGCE /Trinity TEFL/CELTA/ or equivalent certification
Salary & Benefits
- A very competitive monthly wage (guaranteed hours)
