I had a job offer in Nigeria (Abuja) for August 2018 start which, for a variety of reasons, fell through. I posted a review on a well know review site about the school. My criticisms, since backed by another reviewer, were no help (or even mention/advice) with vaccines/malaria care. No contact from the school for weeks then a folder of documents (I would need for visa application) but no details of what the documents were and the only other information the type of visa I needed to apply for. No financial help with visa offered. An email a few weeks later from the new head telling me the date I had to get to the school for an unpaid induction week before the start of term. No other details from him. London flights get into Abuja just after midnight. It is unsafe to travel at night but nothing on how to get to the school or a night in a hotel etc. The review was largely a factual listing of events (which I can prove) and the posting ultimately fell through because of personal illness. The headmaster who interviewed me had left abruptly and left me in no doubt about the new head (who had also been there before the head who interviewed me took up his post) who had 'ruled with a rod of iron'. Anyway, got a long rambling email from the owner today who told me, amongst other things, about the advantages of a 'rod of iron' approach to management and claiming the unpaid induction week was fine as I would have been paid for the summer holidays at the end of my two year contract. I am happy with my review and will not remove it but my question: Is it the norm for international teachers at the end of a two year contract to be paid for the summer holidays (say they finish in the June) before starting at a new job in the September or does the owner have a point and this makes up for the unpaid induction week?
