    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at British Council part-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Team spirit, salary, & opportunities to progress professionally with constant training are definite pros.

    Cons

    Inept management , constant changes in level testing/demarcation, & materials used in class and an overall feeling that the 'powers that be' don't understand the adult market. Flexibility is awarded & experience & skills shunned.

    Advice to Management

    Give your teachers more support with the new class materials & give more credibility to students' needs & wishes.
