The school not only enjoys an excellent location in Jumeirah not far from the beach but a well-resourced, attractive and green campus including a grassy football pitch (not too common in Dubai), sports halls and swimming pools. The school accommodates about 1500 students; segregation by gender is strict reflecting stricter recruitment criteria. Although lower classes are mixed, female teachers are only allowed to teach them. The school is subject to local ministry regulations. Teachers looking for a solid grounding in international teaching in a local setting where English is not the first language will benefit hugely from considering the potential that this local fee paying school has to offer.
Requirements: Teachers with one years of experience are preferred and they should have a single marital status to reflect the accommodation offering and have an excellent command of the English language. Primary teachers ideally should have Bachelors in Primary Education although those with a PGCE (depending on first degree) will also be considered. Teachers will need to demonstrate attributes of creativity, patience and flexibility. The US curriculum used is a little more rigid than the UK system with a greater reliance on text books and frequent testing. Teachers need to be mindful of cultural sensitivities and be able to deliver differentiated work on an academic and English language basis. This is not a typical western expatriate school; all students come from local families.
Package: Tax Free Salary starting from 9000AED per month, End of Service Gratuity, Free shared furnished accommodation with good local amenities, Local Medical Insurance, Annual Flights.
