I'm told these are the names Shane/Saxoncourt uses in Poland. Please refer to my thread: Saxoncourt / Shane English - your experience

Resource was never anything to do with Saxoncourt, though the DOS and some of the teachers had all previously worked at Target. It was a much classier place altogether than Saxoncourt but was taken over in 2009 by a UK recruitment agency and is no longer involved in language training. A shame, because before the takeover it was one of the best places to work by far. I worked there between 2002 and 2008 and am still in contact with teachers who stayed there until the EFL side stopped.

As I mentioned in your other thread, Saxoncourt Poland have seemingly vanished. The 'target and shane' thing was the remnant of the old Target after most of the clients and staff migrated to Resource. If they still genuinely exist, they must be a much smaller setup (and they were never that big, especially compared to the old Target or Resource). Their website is still up, but the references from clients are mostly from companies they haven't taught at since Resource split away in 2002, and they are now operating from a residential address in an outer suburb, Bielany. If I remember correctly from the days they were based by the junction of Prozna and Marszalkowska they sometimes had difficulties retaining teachers and clients.

Thanks, for clearing that up okedata. Doesn't surprise me given the appalling lack of communication throughout the Shane/Saxoncourt system. Even here in China, Beijing Shane has distanced itself from a head office in Shanghai which provides little support.
