Unfortunately CITC had a few not good teachers, who'd left with a bad experience and instead of going on with their own life's, they chose to ruin the reputation of the school by writing abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, and threatening language, on online forums. Without going in details in each case separately, those teachers violated the ethics and moral code of the school and the Sudanese people traditions, in incidents varying from in job intoxication, illegal sexual activities, sexual harassment and breaking the rules of the contract.
To live up to its expectations, adhere to its ethical standards and to the benefit of other teachers and students CITC, did the necessary actions and eradicate those bad apples. CITC is a prominent, very well respected school and it has no time for these kind of cheap and ludicrous talk.

At CITC we try our best to accommodate foreign teachers with the best experience during their employment period. CITC believes in providing a comfortable, healthy and open minded environment to all our employees, because it's essential, to achieve the best results for the teachers and the students.

Sudan is a third world country, it has its own infra structure issues and developing issues. There is electricity shortage, weather is extremely hot, technology isn't in every day to day life, things can not be done as fast as in the western world and the Sudanese mentality is relaxed and laid back. Having said that, Sudan enjoys a very diverse harmonize very kind and helpful people. CITC provides its western teachers with the most comfortable accommodation and transportation and the best teaching tools. The weather, as I have mentioned is hot all year round except during the winter time, which is like spring in Europe, but off course school and teachers residence are very well air conditioned as well as the transportation means.

There are places for foreigner to visit such as the ancients pyramids in the north of the country, African animal safari in Dindir Zoo and the southern part enjoys a European life style in a equatorial weather. People of Sudan are very sociable and very friendly, but again, teachers applying to come to Sudan have to be open minded and be tolerant to other cultures and traditions. Sudan is a Muslim country and there are many behaviors that are not acceptable by the people and the law. For instance drinking alcohol is prohibited by law, but indeed there are exceptions to westerners as long as they drink in their residence without causing any disturbances to the public or to the residents. Illegal sexual activities are also prohibited, but again, as long as there is good intention relationships, that can be done in privacy, it's no one business as long as it's discreet and just limited to the two parties.

Foreign teachers can enroll in foreign social clubs (American Club), sports clubs (swimming club) and musical clubs (learn music). Social life is lively exist, but again it's all up to the teachers and how intolerant he or she to other cultures and traditions.

CITC have employed more than 400 foreign teachers since 2003. Most, from the English native speaking countries such as U.K, U.S.A, Canada, Australia, New Zealand etc.. It is not surprisingly to have 3 or 4 teachers that did not have a pleasant experience or had a not good relation with CITC. On behalf of CITC, I regret that and I believe it was unfortunate, but as much as CITC tries hard to provide what it can do to it's teachers, it can not please everyone. Every teachers experience is different from the other and it's up to the applicant on the first place to gather more information about the country and the culture.

CITC offers lucrative contracts to experienced and qualified teachers, and our expectations are high. We expect all teachers to abide by the signed contracts, school rules and respect the culture and traditions of the country. The school will not tolerate any misrepresentation, misconduct or any misbehavior.

On behalf of CITC, I invite all interested, open minded teachers to visit our informative web site
http://www.citc-teachers.com
and read about the school, the country, testimonials and what we offer. I Thank you for taking the time to read and we are always happy to hear from you.

Thank you,
CITC Management

Hi,
I think your message sounds very angry and unprofessional. I haven't worked for your school before, but just wandered why you felt the need to write this post? Surely if you treated the staff who used to work with you in the right way, then you wouldn't need to defend yourself.

jai 123:

There is nothing angry or unprofessional about the letter posted by CITC. Many expatriate teachers are moral reprobates whose behaviour is often disgusting and reprehensible.

Foreign educational institutions have every right to condemn the outrageous and repugnant conduct of these so-called Western teachers, and to give them the boot as soon as their negative behaviour becomes evident.
