    I have recently secured a teaching position in Dubai starting from August. Any other teachers heading to Dubai for the first time from August?

    For those already teaching in Dubai what is the expected salary for a fully qualified teacher with 8 years teaching experience (2 of those years was teaching in China)

    Be great to hear from you.

    It's extremely risky that you didn't find that out before! How do you know you're not being exploited?

    Anyway, I think anywhere from 12,000 is now considered decent since schools are tightening their belts

    Would you really want to find out you are on a rubbish package and you have to live with that for two years, knowing full well that other teachers in the same city were earning more than you for the same job? I know i wouldnt. Its fine if you are earning the better salary, terrible if you arent.

    Top whack in Dubai right now is around 22,000dhs per month for a class teacher... But I believe only one school pays that much.

    So if 22000 is the most you can earn as a classroom teacher in Dubai. that is about 52000 pounds per year tax free. Not bad. But if say that most teachers are on say 15000 to 16000 a year that is only 3160 to 3380 pounds a year. Dumbells reckons you can get 100k usd per year classroom teaching only but it obviously is not in Dubai. Still 3160 tax free isnt bad. But Dubai isnt all that.
