The grammatical errors are suspicious, but the paltry 8 GBP an hour seems about right for rip-off Britain. What a bunch of crooks.

Yes, you take out a loan to do a degree and get into massive debt, but decide to crack on and do your CELTA and get into more debt figuring you can pay all the money back upon landing a lucrative job at a prestigious language institute in London. And then the reality hits: £8 an hour. What a joke. At that measly rate of pay, you'd be paying off loans well into your old age.

They'll get the 'teacher' they deserve paying those rates in London. You could make more money clearing tables at Nando's, probably more enjoyable too. Rolling Eyes

.. or learning a skill to become a plumber or electrician much better than teaching English in London for a peanut salary.

Care International Ltd is actually a charity dealing with fighting poverty worldwide. I suspect this is little better than 'volunteering'. They were probably unable to recruit unpaid volunteers....

These people are just as bad:

Minimum hourly rate of £12.00 per hour ( Higher rate of pay for DELTA Qualified and well-experienced teacher)

Maybe they pay £13 for a Delta-qualified teacher? Wow! Why are hourly rates so low in this city? I'm even witnessing this on summer presessional courses: hourly rates are falling. How much lower do these schools think they can go? It's criminal.
