Hello, Well I've read the various anti QP and Griffith threads so I now seek some alternative options.
I am interested in EFL in the Middle East and Qatar is one of my options. I am signed on to a few EFL sights and job search and the afore mentioned companies are the ones that always pop up. So what are the other options available.
I have a TEFL qualification (albeit not CELTA) and 3 years experience in Japan and Mexico. What doors are òpen to me?

I know people who work at QP and they say that it's not perfect but fine all the same- guess it depends who speak to....They recently got a 2000QR monthly increase....which gives them 11000 QR per month

without an MA there are not many options open to you....have you tried the language institute? Heard they were recruiting recently

The Language Institute is a good place but very few jobs on offer.

The Military Language School is also supposed to be good but I don't know who to contact there. Will try to find out for you.

QP is always recruiting.

Try their website.

http://www.qp.com.qa/qp.nsf


Subcontract teaching - try Griffiths. Still no confirmed news about renewal of their contract but they are still recruiting which seems a good sign.

Qatar Petroleum Project
Griffith University has a contract with Qatar Petroleum to recruit quality English language instructors to work as contractors at their Corporate Training centres at Doha, Ras Laffan, Dukhan and Mesaieed.

Qatar Petroleum is a government organization which is involved in ‘Qatarization’- the training of Qatari citizens to replace expatriate workers. This is a long-term objective of the Qatar government.


The local sponsor in Qatar is IMTIAZ Management Training Centre, part of GSSG, a company which provides a variety of types of training and education to Qatari citizens. IMTIAZ provides instructors with salary, accommodation, transportation and support in all areas associated with living in Qatar and working at QP as a contractor.

New community colleges going to open next year. Should be jobs.
Heard salaries will be 13,000 +

It looks like IMTIAZ won't be renewed but Griffith will probably stay with a new local sponsor. QP haven't been very happy with some of the Imtiaz activities. Let's hope the new sponsor will be more organized and efficient. So far our jobs seem secure for the moment. Only time will tell. Griffith is reasonably adequate. Maybe if they get responsored, we can get a raise!!! Car included. Who else gives you wheels?

The golden days are gone. Wilber you left at the right time!!!! So did I!!

IMTIAZ is out and out of money as well thanks to Griffith holding on to the bucks. They were supposed to pay IMTIAZ, their subcontractors, but they haven't paid them since June. As a result IMTIAZ has no money to pay the contract teachers it recruited. The lucky ones are the ones who got fired last summer, though at the time they didn't know it. At least they left with their salary. The poor clods still hanging around haven't been paid in full because Griffith hasn't paid off Imtiaz. Some teachers have also had to vacate their apartment because IMTIAZ couldn't cover the rent. They've rehoused them in a dump allegedly owned by IMTIAZ!

Griffith has a lot to answer for. They've left these teachers in the lurch. Some have just quit and will leave or have left. Maybe 25 left!! These guys have really been dumped on!! The culprit is Griffith. They don't know how to honor an agreement evidently!!!!
