I have recently moved over to the UAE with my partner. I am a PE teacher with 3 years teaching in primary and secondary in an English schools and have just spent the last academic year as HOD. I had secured 2 posts prior to coming out here but shortly before I moved they fell through due to a small pandemic doing the rounds around the globe. I have moved out regardless and at the moment out of any work (completed a 90 extension Visa etc so I am here until Christmas at least). I appreciate others have lost their jobs in the UAE and have more of a chance potentially securing any jobs that arise between now and Christmas along with the fact that over 100 people are applying for 1 post. What I am keen to know, is from any anyone currently in the UAE or having been here prior, is what I can do in the meantime to help boost my chances with any roles that may come up. I will be having to use my savings unfortunately whilst over here but such is the nature of the current global situation; and I am happy to take up any coaching work in the mean time and will be looking to complete a level 1 and 2 swimming qualification. I am open to teaching both primary and secondary and have GSCE, A level experience over the last 3 years. I'd be very grateful for any advice on what I could do to help boost my Cv and what I could to do to stand out to any potential employers? (Appreciate others in a similar position might also see this but hey ho).
