Has anyone else had an interview with the Bahrain Polytechnic recently and tried to answer the 'triangle' question?

There are so many fantastically paying GCC jobs advertised at the moment in Qatar and the UAE, why would you want to sell your soul and work in Bahrain? Although not as bad as the despicable University of Bahrain, The Polytechnic is still under the shadow of the Ministry of Education, the Bahrain Government. Yes, the same folks found to be systematically torturing its own people.

or if you are within Bahrain and the above is blocked go here:

Hardly answers my question, does it Gulfedout? Not very nice of you to use other people's postings as your personal political soap box.

I think it was very nice of me to warn you what you're letting yourself in for.

Tony M's comment at the bottom of this article might make you think twice though but maybe you're only looking at the $$$$$$$$s in which case I am sorry to have bothered you.

It's about your creativity. Relate it to student-centred learning. They're having trouble getting people, so .... be creative. Once you have the job, being creative will be the least of your problems.

Bahrain Polytechnic is going to be interviewing at TESOL Arabia next month. Does anyone have updated information on what it's like to work there?

Student motivation level, curriculum, class size, admin support (or otherwise), salary, benefits (housing, flights, etc..) time off, and anything else that comes to mind.

Thanks.
