Language Institute is not paying 14K-17K. You start off with around 11K maximum. I'd like to know who is receiving 14K-17K. The work days are 4 days and half a day Thursday. Flats are generally 3-bedrooms. And transportation allowance of 500 QR or something like that.

QAC are now paying around 12K plus your day is over by 1pm ish.I hear they now offer very decent accommodation.It's a good intro for gulf newbies but of course it has its share of staffroom politicking.

As for the Language Teaching Institute, it's more of a semi-retirement gig for the over 50s. I hear it's a doddle but absolutely no way they pay 14K-17K.

The building is a ramshackled pigeon-infested barnyard, but then you're hardly ever there to notice.If you've got any drive put the LTI on the backburner.

Another one of Malachy's places. It's doing well and the teachers there are more or less satisfied but the salary is pretty low, about 10,000 QR. But let me tell you, they get nice apartments. Some to-ing and fro-ing of gulagers to the college and vice versa. A nice little place to work since the management doesn't have its head in the clouds and is respectful to all. Definitely a place for singles as the salary won't let you support a family or wife. A better calibre of students too as some are going to be pilots and might be piloting your Qatar Airways flight. So be good to them and teach them well.

This place is soon going to go under the Qatar Foundation umbrella and move to Al Khor. I don't know if this means the teachers will be retained and their salaries upgraded to be on par with other QF insitutions. The airport out there is being expanded and from what I've heard the new college will be part of the airport. So good-bye old QAC and hello to whatever they're going to call it.

Defacto - The Aeronautical College as is will soon cease to exist and will be a part of the new military schools out in Al Khor with their own private airstrip, airport, port, etc. It's going to be some outfit!!
Staff are waiting to see if their salaries are going to be upped.

The move to Al Khor is going to take time - they have to prepare the new buildings, etc. So it probably won't happen for 2 or 3 years. Some teachers are hoping for 4 years. Nobody wants to move out to Al Khor.
It's dullsville, not to mention you risk your life driving on the Doha-Al Khor highway with all the speeders and nutters on the road.

Qatar will need 1,200 pilots in four years, says expert

Source ::: THE PENINSULA
BY RAYNALD RIVERA

DOHA: With Qatar Airways and other leading airlines going on an expansion spree, Qatar will need 1,200 pilots by 2013, making the demand for commercial pilots surge, said an official of an aviation institution

visiting Doha.

“Qatar Airways is expecting delivery of 182 aircraft by 2013 bringing the total number of operating aircraft to 250,” noted Amit Agarwal, Chief Executive Officer of Texas-based Supreme Aviation Worldwide, adding that delivery of around 500 new aircraft may be expected by airline companies in the region in the next four years. “Deliveries of aircraft to airline companies around the world are on hold because of shortage of pilots,” Agarwal, who is a commercial pilot himself, told aspiring aviators during a seminar, held at the Movenpick Tower and Suites yesterday.

Besides, the surfacing of new airlines, domestic airlines going international, and regional airlines going domestic are other reasons for the increase in the demand for pilots which has become a global phenomenon, according to Agarwal.

Retirement of captains and commanders is also another factor for the dearth of pilots, he said noting that around 500 to 1,000 pilots retire every year. Titled ‘Be a Pilot’, the seminar provided the participants an idea of the opportunities in the aviation industry, qualifications to enrol in aviation schools, and the process to obtain a commercial pilot

licence (CPL).

This used to be one of Malachy's operations. Check last week's Guardian (Education) jobs. This is a British paper. I've heard they've got an ad in there looking for teachers. Salary range is not very good, less than 12,000 but not so bad if you don't have anyone to support.

They don't pay enough to keep good staff. It's really too bad. There will be a move to Al Khor in a few years. They may face competition if the new Airforce Academy gets going.

Yes, the salaries are the main problem. I haven't heard about the new Airforce Academy. Is this part of the military or a separate place?
