Dubai 2017

    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 secondary school teacher with 8 years teaching experience (2 of those years were In the Far East)

    Would be great to hear from you.

    ( I have/had another post up but had s few typos from predictive text)

    Each school has their own pay scale, most likely because each school haa different school fees, so the salary at your school will most likely be different than the salary offered at a different school. I personally wouldn't move there for less than 15k per month, however, I know others who for some strange reason see Dubai as something that's it not and would move there for as little as 10k a month. Each to their own...

    Have fun and ignore the naysayers. Make your own decisions. Dubai is well liked by many.

    Yes. there are some teachers going to Dubai for the start of the next academic year. Yes, please do not listen to silly people who say that Dubai is too hot or that it is full of shopping malls and motorways or that it is artificial and surrounded by desert or that the UAE's record on human rights stinks. All of these untrue things should not bother you. Have fun.

    I hope the leader of the UAE and Saudi get some sense knocked into them and stop their stance against Qatar! I was looking forward to driving to Dubai from Doha!
