Would you like to be part of the change?


Salaries for teachers range from 8000 AED/month (~$2,178/2,904 CAD) for newly qualified teachers to 13,500 AED/month (~$3,675/4,902 CAD), tax free. Middle and Upper leaders - pay commensurate with position. There is also a housing allowance, end of service gratuity, flights and medical insurance. Candidates will be provided full orientation and pre- and post- arrival support.Tuition discounts available for some posts, however these schools are not appropriate for the majority of western expatriate children. Flights and medical are not provided for dependent children or spouses.


NOTE: Candidates must be happy to be a part of a change team and have good ‘cultural intelligence’. The school wants staff who enjoy ‘rolling up their sleeves’ and working to make schools a happy and productive place to learn.


Students are Emirati and Arab expatriates with almost 100% English language learners. The school utilizes a US Common Core curriculum, localized for the UAE. Most schools are gender segregated after grade 5 with Boys and Girls sections, in keeping with local norms.Some middle and upper leadership positions are available for those with proven leadership experience in a relevant school setting.


Per UAE Ministry of Education requirements, you must have a degree and teacher training relevant to the subject and level taught, such as a degree + PGCE, Bachelors of Education, Masters of Education, etc. You must be licensed to teach children in your home country, as well as have a clean criminal record check and pass UAE security clearance. The school needs fluent English speakers with teacher training/experience from the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand or South Africa. We are looking for resilient, energetic teachers who don’t feel they know everything there is to know, but who are confident professionally and good with building relationships. We want teachers who are flexible and understand cultural awareness and cultural sensitivity.


Preference will be given to teachers who are willing to consider positions in all campuses- Sharjah as well as Dubai. Sharjah is the Emirate immediately adjacent to Dubai. It has a lower cost of living and the schools are less than an hour from Dubai making it a great opportunity to save while still enjoying everything the region has to offer.
