Very poor management: no ethics and no quality control or concerns

ILAC is the kind of school that when a bulb in a projector stops working (and you've only got the one projector in your class), they won't bother to replace the bulb for an entire term. Instead, they'll move your class to another room even if that new room is too small to accommodate the number of students that you have. After a while students stop showing up in your class for the singular reason that they have no place to sit. ILAC is the kind of school that a) has an attendance policy for its students--after a certain number of absences students fail the course--but that will change the attendance record that the instructor has logged so that no student fails the course for missing classes--effectively letting instructors know that they time they wasted taking attendance is just that: wasted time. ILAC is the kind of school that will listen to complaints from the agencies that recruit their students (in other countries) and then tell the instructors that they've received complaints from the agencies about the fact that their tests are too hard--even though the tests are written by ILAC, not the instructors. Moreover, the college won't even ask instructors about the students' failure to attend class and how that failure may contribute to the students doing poorly on an exam or assignment. Instead they'll change the students' marks without telling the teacher. ILAC is the kind of school that gives the students 12 weeks worth of material to study but burns the first week on an orientation class and a second class that gets cancelled for night out for students at a -

Expect to be let go at any possible time

Job security is extremely low. I saw many teachers get fired during my time here without any explanation. It's not a bad place to gain teaching experience, but definitely do not expect job security no matter what they tell you. Management also plays favourites so unless you are one of those favourites, you are expendable.

Pros

The students and teachers are extremely kind and fun to be around

Cons

The management is extremely shady and you must always stay on their good side
