    Looking to teach abroad but cant find any specialist food tech jobs. Is it only D&T in the UAE?
    Any advice appreciated

    I believe food technology has been available <u>in</u> the UAE for many years. I distinctly remember purchasing a kettle and whisk when I was there in the 1990's, and understand they even have microwaves nowadays.
    Whether they do it On the UAE, I'm not sure.

    Great deal of snobbery on this thread. Thanks for the helpful advice from one or two people who have something to contribute that isn't sarcastic.
    I too teach this subject. We make our pizza's from scratch (including the sauce). Most of the ingredients we grow in our kitchen garden which the pupils designed and constructed.
    We also teach the pupils about nutrition and the importance of a balanced diet.
    There is a place fro catering, food, nutrition in all schools, especially in light of the fact that we have a global obesity problem that seems to be getting worse.
    If anybody can provide information on countries they know offer it (and value it) please drop me a line.

    With obseity and diabetes major health issues in the Gulf region, particularly among the younger generation of Emiratis and Qataris, Food Fechnology is one subject that really ought to be taught in every school. Mine, however, is using the room that was originally designed for Food Technology as a storeroom.
    Here in Qatar, the Supreme Education Council's decision to devote more lesson time to Arabic, Islamic Studies and now Qatari History means that there is even less space on the curriculum for subjects like Food Technology. With friends like the SEC, who needs enemies?
