FE Lecturer - What can I teach in Dubai/Middle East?

    Hi folks,

    Hello! I am an FE Lecturer in Law, with 12 years experience (and University teaching experience) and educated to Masters Level and with TQFE and do a lot of work for SQA also (i.e. Prior Verification and Centre Approvals) - basically, I am unsure 'what' I can teach in Dubai and the Middle East as most jobs seems to focus only on primary and secondary levels. Would I only be able to Universities and/or are their College 'equivalents' in Dubai and the Middle East, and even beyond? It has proved 'tricky' to find out such information online!

    If anyone is or has been out in Dubai or suchlike, and has an FE background, I would be very interested in hearing from you, or anyone who can point me in the right direction - it would be greatly appreciated!

    Best Regards

    I would think you could get a job at one of the local unis - and certainly at one of the post compulsory colleges - The ones I know in Abu Dhabi are HCT, Fatema College, Al Jazeera(sp?) Institute, Abu Dhabi Polytechnic for colleges and Zayed Uni, Khalifa Uni and Petroleum Institute (though I think all three are combining) and Al Ain uni - but there are a few smaller/private ones also I think.

    The only way to find vacancies is to look on their website AFAIK - One of my High School colleagues made the move to a Uni a couple of years ago and she was either recruited or knew someone who suggested she applied. I'm not sure where you'd stand with Law though as obviously the legal system is very different here.

    Edit: Here's a list of HE institutes in Abu Dhabi from ADEK https://www.adek.abudhabi.ae/en/Students/Pages/List-of-Higher-Education-Institution.aspx

    you can probably find something similar for Dubai.
