    Hey step, I got my approvals on 26 Jan this year, and then got my contract 20 Feb, so you're likely to wait another week I think, they said it's due to the contract being written in Arabic Word for word so it matches the English version. What subject will you be you teaching?

    How long did you wait for that email? I take it your visa is done then that's why they're asking! Can you keep me updated if that's okay? I'm so impatient right now ha ha

    What salaries are offered this year for MOE posts? I believe they pay between 3500 USD and 5000 USD per month. Does this include ftee housing?

    Yeah no probs. Yeah the visa is done. That email came three weeks after I sent back the final contract and 10 days after I was asked for a reference so they could begin processing the visa. Know exactly how you feel. Hang in there lol

    21000 AED a month. So that's about 5700 USD. Doesn't include free housing though.

    I'm teaching the same subject! I'm waiting for my visa to come through too but apparently it shouldn't be too long.

    Hi I had my interview a couple of days ago. They give you a test related to your subject and anything new surrounding it. Then there's a 5-10 minute interview, it is very quick and they are straight to the poiint with questions. Good luck

    Is there anyone in this entire thread that has actually started a position through one of these agencies?

    Hi all.
    I had a difficult time choosing between IAT and MOE. I signed the final contract with MOE as they suggested I can start earlier than May, hence pay over the summer holidays.
    I signed today the 24th March and the guy from my agency suggested that the visa and the tickets might not take longer than 2 weeks. He actually assured me that I will be working already by 1st May.
    I suppose I just need to wait and see.
    I will come back with news

    Hey amaka,

    Basically you have a test first which you complete. It's to do with basic design tech questions for example what materials you would use to make so and so. Pretty basic. If you pass that bit you have an interview with 2 people on the panel. They just ask you what you are doing and what experience you have in design tech etc. That's it really?
