Can anyone tell me if the Abu Dhabi Petroleum Institute employs female ESL instructors? Thanks.

Dear jane A,
Well I went to their web site, but all I could see there that was relevant to your question is that the place, " enrolled its first students - 140 young men - and began classes in September 2001 ".
So offhand, I'd say - probably no women instructors.
Regards,
John

I do hate to disagree with the illustrious JohnS, but while what he says would definitely be true in Saudi, it is not necessarily true in the Emirates. In the Higher Colleges, there are men teachers in the women's colleges and women in the men's colleges. Even the MLI, the military contract there originally limited to men teachers only, now hires women.

I am not familiar with this particular place, but I know that another oil company related job hired women. So, this may hire them too.

Sorry that I can't be more definite.

Dear veiledsentiments,
What? Do you mean to tell me that there is sexual mixing in the UAE? O tempora, O mores - we live in degenerate times. Well, I fully expect the Emirates will be consumed by fire and brimstone very shortly. And that'll serve them right, too. Why, the next thing you know, they'll want to vote.
Regards,
John

Yes, it is shocking!! Of course, everyone knew that those expats would bring this kind of depravity in with them!! Or else it was the fault of Star TV or the internet.

Hello,
PI does not at present hire female instructors, but of course that policy might change in the future as was the case with MLI.
2 ladies work there only - in librarian/ILC posts.
