Hey, I really hope there is someone out there who can respond to my thread and shine some light on what really is a good salary package for a primary school teacher in Dubai! Last week I was fortunate to be offered a job at a primary school in Dubai. The package included a salary of 9,500 dirhams, studio flat, medical insurance and a return flight to the UK. Upon reading thread after thread, some dating as far back as 2007, 9,000 dirhams was considered low. I therefore turned the job down! Today I had another job interview with a different school. The headmaster informed me that with my experience of 2 years that if they were to offer me a job they would offer me a salary of 9,300 dirhams, plus the same benefits as above. He also advised me not to compare this monthly salary to my UK salary because of the extra benefits the Dubai schools have to offer in comparison!!! I haven't come across a recent thread that indicates what teachers should expect, only that 9,000 dirhams is way too low!! Ahhhhhhh - im so confused as to what is a good salary package in Dubai. Especially after hearing from the mouth of a headmaster that it's the going salary and after casting my eyes over his official looking spreadsheet with different pay scales!!!
