    Hi, I've just been offered a lead trainer role in the UAE with the MOE to start in April ( via astute agency) I'm trying to find out more about the role form the ground , and also the packages people are on, etc in order to get more informed before I sign ! so If you are a lead trainer , or know someone who is, could you wave if you are up for a Chat? My subject is drama A level, but I am happy to talk to anyone currently doing this role.

    I am particularly interested in knowing whether, given the post - which I understand May cover a cluster of schools rather than single school placement - there is a presidence for negotiating extra travel and accommodation. as I beleive Currently it has to come out of the wage- which doesn't sit quite right. I'd still be earning more than over here in the uK - but I just don't want to be naive.

    Hope this makes sense

    Basically the MOE is the lowest form of educational employment in the UAE. It involves trying to educate the local student population.

    The MOE is currently trying to train its own graduates to teach in the countries own state schools to replace the 1000s of expat teachers it currently employs.

    Arab countries try this every 10 years to replace the 1000s of Indian,Egyptian,Bangladeshi and Pakistani teachers they have to employ in state schools. This always fails for the obvious reason that teaching is too hard work for locals to undertake.

    I applied for cluster manager. Got my initial offer May. They have just got in touch today for more. Seems like it is from their PRO from what they asked for.

    I imagine quite a few people will be hearing from them soon - the newspaper here had a story yesterday that 400+ MoE teachers had resigned. I think it was 177 expats with the rest being Emirati teachers. I would imagine the expat jobs will need to be filled.

    I think all the MOE teachers I know are staying but it was uncertain for a while due ot changes in the contract and how that might impact their gratuity/end of contract bonus.
