Everyone thinks the British Council is THE EFL institution to work for and to go to, this is not true believe me, long hours, bad pay, difficult atomosphere, nobody is sure which law they follow, UK or Korean, they choose which one one is best for them.

I used to work for the BC in Korea and I know all the above to be true, my MP and the Foreign Office are now investigating the legality of the British Council contracts and their refusal to comply with Korean Labour Laws, as per usual they are dragging their feet on these issues. It shows such arrogance that they think they can ignore democratically elected government officials.

Why not? The British Council in Korea illegaly employed people from 2005 to 2007. This was highlighted on the Seoul Police Agency site. All that happened was that The British Coucnil got a warning and they, in turn, had a quiet word with the illegal (in and out 10 times on tourist visas) and said that unfortunately they would no longer be able to provide work and pay him into his (legally employed) girlfriend's back account. This is how they operate so why the shock?

This place just never changes. And now the UK Government is refusing to investigate this matter. Is this just all the big boys sticking together? Who is protecting whom?

We all know that a guy called Roderick has been coing in and out of Korea on tourist visas for 3 years now. He worked for quite a long time as an IELTS speaking examiner for the British Council on Sundays at the Coucil itself and on Saturdays at the university. He also marked written exams at the British Council during the week. He probably earned more than us (all paid into Hem´s bank account of course) with no extras to pay. We all know this. The British Council is disgustingly corrupt and yet it tries to teach democratic practices to other countries. Why wont the great House of Commons investigate?

I'm not sure where to put a post about an academy not yet mentioned, but I'd appreciate if you put it under a seperate heading so Google searches for "JUNG JIN KUG (JJK) ACADEMY BLACKLIST" hit this.
Terrible place to work. It's tiny and filthy (nothing gets cleaned ever; they mop ONLY with water) the staff are surly and the boss is abusive. For example: No pension given, although it's South Korean labor policy. No medical insurance given, although its South Korean labor policy. Steers you (uninsured) toward incompetant doctors. I've gotten only 1/2 sick day the whole year; the contract promises me 3 (I asked to take one, when I had tonsilitis/laringytis and was denied, and yelled at for asking.) Fourteen vacation days were promised, and ten given (all chopped into small holidays mandated by the director.) These are all ILLEGAL practices.
Practices by JJK Academy that are LEGAL but insufferable are: you get a tiny, uninsulated apartment. The director is nosy and abusive, I have been yelled at multiple times by the director and his wife both. The school is a mess, schedule-wise, and I've never been told what I'm supposed to be teaching. NO training given. They're doing poorly, so there is NO discipline in order to keep the students.
STAY AWAY!!!
