Ridiculously managed. Bad senior teachers.
My experience at ILSC was nothing short of horrifying. Shortly after I was hired, I was asked to come in to substitute for one of their senior teachers. I came into the classroom with a copy of my University degrees and qualifications which I had put on the teacher's desk.
I had to leave the classroom for a moment to get a copy of the lesson plan that I had not received beforehand. When I came back into the classroom, I was horrified to find that my qualifications were missing and were placed into the garbage by the teacher whose class I was substituting for!
To this day I cannot forget this experience. It made me want to leave everything and go home, but I kept my composure and told the academic director about what had happened. I did not get an apology from anyone. During the interview, I was told that I would get regular classes, however, I got one class in April to May. In June and July which is typically their busiest time, I had absolutely no classes whatsoever. In August, I was given a class and after that was put on unemployment.
I learned my lesson the hard way: do not ever work for this school again! Policies are heinous. How can one accrue 405 hours before becoming a permanent teacher when they barely give you 3 hours a day worth of classes?? No, no, no, no, no!! Please stay away and look at other options where you can use your skills and experiences because if you stay here, I promise you will be tossed out like a piece of trash! Your stay here will be shorter than Toronto's summers. Good luck! You have been warned!
