Hi guys,
Does anyone here have experience with ACIC (American Cairo International College)? I will be applying to them soon.
Do they require experienced teachers? What's the pay like?
Thank you

I'm not familiar with the school, but I did dig around their web site.

It's certainly sketchy.

This page shows what appears to be an accreditation certificate:

http://www.acic.edu.eg/about#!__about/accreditation

So, I searched AdvancEd's database for the school's name.

http://www.advanc-ed.org/oasis2/u/par/search

When that wasn't successful, I tried different configurations of the school's name. Still nothing.

BIG. RED. FLAG.

No accreditation => no licensure => bad news.

There are plenty of schools and it's not as if Egypt is overrun with foreigners at the moment. Why not look elsewhere?

Thank you for the reply!

The thing is, I am a recent university graduate, and so I have no experience. I will be getting a CELTA in the future, though.

I'm thinking that if I get offered a teaching position at ACIC, it would be a great launch pad for my TEFL career.

I will still be looking around at different schools. Smile

Thank you again!

There are plenty of licensed, legitimate schools in Cairo. Don't hang your hat on this one because you think they will hire you in spite of your lack of experience.
