TAKE A TESOL/TEFL COURSE IN DUBAI

Dubai has emerged as one of the most modern cities of our times. It has numerous places to visit and unique buildings to see. Whether it is a heritage site, the Al Fahidi District, the Dubai Creek, landmarks such as Burj Khalifa, Burj Al Arab, the Palm, the Atlantis, Ski Slope, or the theme and beach parks—Dubai is always breathtaking.

One of the world’s youngest and most dynamic countries, the UAE was founded in 1971 and consists of seven emirates. The nation’s terrain includes vast stretches of rolling desert speckled with green oases, while the coastal regions feature sandy, tranquil beaches. In the cities, cosmopolitan flair and modern excitement are superimposed on ancient history: traditional souks are offset by huge shopping malls, and skyscrapers soar over ancient mosques.

Located on the Persian Gulf, Dubai is the second largest emirate and one of the planet’s top centers of commerce and tourism. Just three decades ago, the Emirati people were nomads, traveling by camelback across the desert. Today, modernization has steered the primarily Muslim population into a new, urbanized way of life. Women are gaining freedom, becoming more educated and able to work outside the home. Considered of the world’s fastest growing tourist destinations, the UAE features camel farms just minutes from five-star hotels and more than 430 miles (700 km) of coastline.

The choices are plenty. Rest assured that you will wish to come back again to Dubai to explore its many sights.

WORK IN DUBAI AS A TEFL

Many schools and universities begin in August or September, so spring and summer are excellent times to look for jobs in Dubai. In general, job vacancies are available throughout the year.

Teachers in Dubai can expect to make US $3,000 – $3,500 tax free per month with benefits, including airfare to and from the assignment, health insurance, and furnished housing.

Dubai receives a high number of English teaching inquiries due toits fantastic shopping, dining, entertainment, sites, and its cosmopolitan reputation as a center of trade, finance, and tourism. Because the UAE is considerably smaller than Saudi Arabia and a coveted destination for foreigner teachers, the job market is extremely competitive. Most schools have a preference for experienced teachers with advanced credentials.

In general, teachers are interviewed and hired in advance from their own country and have their visa processed prior to their departure for their teaching destination. To receive their visa, teachers should expect to pass a physical and an HIV test.

In many cases, academic transcripts and a criminal background check are also required. The visa application process takes anywhere between 1 and 3 months. Despite the UAE’s reputation for relative liberalism, teachers must be prepared to respect traditional Arabian and Islamic customs.

WHY TEACH ENGLISH IN THE UNITED ARAB EMIRATES…
When thinking about teaching overseas, a lot of people aspire to teach English in the United Arab Emirates. It is made up of seven Emirates of which Dubai and Abu Dhabi are the most well-known.

These modern cities are a playground for those who can afford to enjoy what they have to offer, which includes zoos, waterparks, towering malls, unnervingly green golf courses and much more. For those lucky few who do get a job teaching English in The United Arab Emirates, all of this awaits, as a basic teacher’s salary in the UAE starts from around 2,000AED/3,200AED a month and University teachers’ salaries start at around 2,500AED/4,000AED. Did we mention that it is tax free?

Being a teacher in the UAE is great for TEFL teachers because the Ministry of Education is responsible for recruiting the majority of public-school teaching positions. They are a very proactive recruiter and hold interview sessions in major cities across the US and UK. They look after education for Emiratis from 4 – 17 years old and if you secure a teaching position here you will be looked after extremely well! The Ministry describes education as an ‘obsession’ for the country and backs that up with the significant budget and resource dedicated to their English teachers.

Private academies and Language schools also offer opportunities to teach English in the United Arab Emirates and are more accessible to those who don’t have a teaching degree or an MA.

If you are lucky enough to end up teaching English in The United Arab Emirates, your hard work in getting the job will definitely be rewarded. As well as the high tax-free salaries you can expect your employer to pay for your accommodation, transport to and from the school every day, flights, private health insurance, a great vacation allowance and a significant bonus at the end of your teaching contract.

With so many of your costs paid for by the school and the generous tax-free salaries many TEFL teachers find that they are easily able to save up quite significant sums or fund fantastic vacation and travel experiences!
