I have it on good authority from co-workers that male teachers are railroaded out away from the warksite. Shamal Solution's advert for new teachers explicitly states "female teachers are strongly encouraged to apply"

There is entirely too much teacher turnover which is usually due to dismal/malicious management, and smacks of "small man syndrome" to me. The upper management are aware of lower management's bullying tactics, but do nothing because of sociopathic effectiveness on the job. All future teachers wanting that 22000 Dirham salary are duly warned.

Did you read this thread about this organization?

http://forums.eslcafe.com/job/viewtopic.php?t=99916

You should probably add your post to that thread. At least your post suggests that the company and jobs actually exist... because up to now none of their current or ex teachers have shown up to confirm that.

But, I'm not sure what you mean by

Where are their teachers working? Who are the students? Where are their locations?

The company does exist and the program is located on a military base very near the vehicle inspection station in Al-Ain. The students are military cadets chosen for various helicopter programs in the military. Those fabulous salaries exist, and at least six male teachers have been railroaded out of the program. Those who do not give in to work place bullying are pressured to resign through clever manipulation, or they flee in the middle of the night.

The program is ran by a sociopath and all of the teachers are afraid (actually terrified) of the manager.

They, indeed, do exist. A mate of mine is the SAT Analyst. I don't think that he would encourage me to work there.

P.s.- A bunch of guys who coordinate with each other wearing desert camoflage dungerees does NOT a military make!

Any man naive enough to teach for Shamal Solutions is going to find that working for a sociopath is impossible. How many MEN have been pushed out the door in the last few years?

Yep, Rollerblader is correct. Shamal Solutions is simply Spectre resurrected from the dead. 22000 clams per month is nothing to turn your nose up at, but you will suffer mightily should you sign up for the gravy train. Many teachers have done runners from this very small organization. Language section management within Shamal is pure evil and manipulates everything in its radar be they Emirati military officers, Emirati students, or co workers to suit the needs of management. The aviation language school at the Al Ain Airport have also suffered significantly from Shamal bullying.

Stay away if you value your dignity.
