An essential service for immigrants preparing for job advancement or entry into gainful employment.
Teacher (English as a Second Language) (Former Employee) –  Calgary, ABAugust 4, 2012
This is one of the many associations that has been highly instrumental in removing the barriers to a better life in the way of the immigrant/refugee population in Calgary. The teaching teams provide a very productive atmosphere. Mutual help and cooperation is much in evidence. Although some problems exist in the area of communication between staff and management, this does not appear to affect the quality of the teaching delivered - and the students do not hesitate to show their appreciation.
Pros
considerable autonomy in planning curricula and lesson plans, well equipped staff room, computer lab and self-study facilities, good choice of teaching materials available.
Cons
as with most esl schools, there is generally only part time work is available, on a contract basis, very little job security

More development in all areas required
Instructor (Former Employee) –  CalgaryJuly 18, 2015
CIES needs to be developed in all areas whether it is staff development, client relations, promoting a healthy work environment. Too many oversights and not a balanced or positive environment. Would not recommend.
