Many of you have probably heard about teaching abroad from friends, family, or social media sites like Facebook. So today I wanted to give you an introduction about teaching in the Middle East.
The Middle East has a variety of international schools, and teachers wishing to teach abroad in the international school in this vibrant region might be overwhelmed with the selection available. Local International British and American schools which serve local children using an expatriate curriculum make up more than half of the international schools in this region. Because English is widely spoken and the quality of state schools varies considerably from region to region, many affluent parents choose to place their children in English speaking British and American international schools from an early age. The breadth of the curricula and extra-curricular opportunities, and the facilities available to pupils varies from school to school.
Teaching in the Middle East offers teachers lots of opportunities to travel in the region, lounge on fabulous beaches, and shop in local souks (open air markets).
Contracts for teaching jobs are typically 2 years long, with the exception of some schools in Kuwait and Oman which offer 1 year contracts. Contracts almost always include return flights, housing either rented for you or heavily subsidized and some form of local medical coverage.
