What about those 2nd floor doors to the outside that are just a drop?

In one of my uni's the second floor door to nowhere but down was identified as a fire escape door. It even had the illuminated Fire Exit sign and was unlocked when the building was occupied!

I am due to start teaching at Zirve University in Gaziantep in September. I have already made the acquaintance of a colleague currently working there, although I am still in America. I have taught EFL overseas before, and after hearing from my colleague in Gaziantep and reviewing the posts on this site, I have to say I am enthusiastic. Turkey sounds like a warm and inviting country, and Zirve sounds like it is staffed with serious, caring professionals. I am eager to join them.

Thanks everyone for the running list of items to bring and/or not bring. Sounds like essential books, clothes, toiletries, electronics, and leave it at that for starters.

Hello I have recently relocated to Gaziantep with my partner.
Are there any teachers in Gaziantep who are currently here and who have worked previously worked in Antep?

I would like to know about prospective EFL opportunities. I have had interviews at Zirve Univesity, Hasan Kolyoncu University and made contact with Wall Street Institute, but does anyone have actual experience working here.

I would also like to meet up with fellow EFL teachers here in Gaziantep, perhaps form some sort of Native English Speakers Society.

Thanks

Hi Ohms 33,

I hope you are well.I read your post and was curious as to how things turned out for you on the job front ,as I too plan to relocate to Antep as my partner's family are there. I begin CELTA in october , however, i am very concerned about my prospects as, although I have 20 years teaching experience as a pedagog ,in both pre five and elementary sectors, and have taught literacy on a voluntary basis in Turkey 10 years ago , the initial qualification I possess is not at degree level.I possess a Higher National Certificate in Child Development and Education,( also referred to as Childhood Studies )
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance Smile

Hi langtryster,

I wondered how things are for you in Antep. It is a city close to my heart as that's where my partner's family are and I've spent a good bit of time there.I too hope to relocate to Antep next year, however , as I have mentioned in another post, I am very concerned that having a CELTA qualification won't suffice in terms of job prospects, inspite of the fact i am an experienced teacher with 20 years behind me, and I've taught adult literacy on a voluntary basis in Turkey, in Turkish.I only possess a Higher National Certificate in Child Development and Education (Childhood Studies) Any advice would be greatly appreciated, as it is really making me feel very concerned. Sad
