I am starting on my next little project for my website.
I would like to look at the various contracts that bushibans/language schools offer their teachers. The aim is to show what you can expect, as well as what is “good, bad and ugly”
If you have a contract that you would be willing to share (please remove your name, and the school name etc.) Please email it to me so I can put it up.
This is not a black list thing - I do not want to expose any schools etc.
Some of the things that interest me are:
1/ How schools deal with sick - days.
2/ The amount of the contract-deposit that schools want to take ( my school wanted $7000, split over 2 months) but I know some people are being asked to pay up to $24000 over 3 months!!)
3/ The hours issue - most contracts state that YOU must be available to teach a certain amount of hours per week - but they don’t guarantee you a set amount of hours.
4/ Extra work - how they pay teachers who have to participate in school functions (like working on xmas day for a ‘xmas party’ etc.
And a whole lot more…
If it is considered inappropiate to make this request please let me know kindly:-)
