Teachers as Workers – interview with Paul Walsh part 1

Issues in ELT

tawsigThe TEFL show presents part 1 of the recent interview with Paul Walsh of the Teachers as Workers Special Interest Group (TaWSig) by Robert William McCaul. In this part we talk about some of the problems that teachers face in the industry: poor pay, low job security, a lack of sick pay, unfair contracts, compulsory unpaid duties such as attending meetings, homework correction, professional development programmes etc. Paul also talks about the frustrations of being a freelance teacher in Berlin- frustrations that ELT freelancers face around the globe. You can find TaWSig on Google+ and Twitter.

As always, we’re looking forward to your comments 🙂
