    The 2 in the UAE are good with the Dubai one being slightly better. I'd work in either.

    Think that's the thing about NAE, they have loads of schools, some are good and some not so good, I suppose it depends on who the management are, I starting the week thinking I wouldn't work for them again (I even had conversations with people on here saying as much) but having seen a job and done a lot of research it seems it is a good school which is well run.

    So although I'm not the biggest fan of the organisation, if they get the right management in place they can be good schools.

    You’re absolutely right, a game of Russian roulette. Bearing in mind, changes can happen suddenly under the ever changing direction of the school for better or equally for worse...

    They have also started buying up schools as going concerns, thus avoiding some of the issues they had a few years ago with their own start ups. They must have acquired some serious venture capital money to buy up so many established schools. The slight upside is that they can't mess them up quite so easily if they are well established.

    Any experience with the one in Singapore? Positive? Negative? We also have two children.

    I've done a bit of research and have heard positive things about it, a bit of a community feel about it, but doesn't pay as well as the bigger schools in the area.

    Don't know the details, but definitely on the up. One thing about Singapore is that the CPE/EduTrust regulatory process means you don't have to worry about any of the worst aspects of international education like not being paid, cooking the books etc. The intense local competition between international schools also serves to drive up standards, in my opinion.

    Anyone got any experience with NAE in Vietnam? Jobs advertised in both Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh which sound tempting...

    I have a phone interview arranged for a HOD job in one of the American schools...does anyone know how the visa arrangements work if I’m successful? Thanks in advance.

    You will get an E2 visa. Means you can work legally at the school and only at the school (no tutoring / bar work on the side etc). If you are married your partner will get one also but they need to wait 3 months until they are able to work on it.

    Hi,
    I’m a bit late to this thread. I am applying for the US does anyone have any experience or knowledge of NA schools there?
    Thank you for any advice given.

    Would be interested to know anything about a small school in SUI, relatively new, relatively small, in what look like fantastic new premises and owned by Nord Anglia (not sure if the buy out was before or after the move).

    Any comments gratefully received.

    I work at a US NA school. Each of them are very different depending where you go to. PM me if you want specific details.

    Hi Willow, I’m keen to know more. Any chance you can shed any light on salary, work load or management in Singapore? Tried to pm you but unable to.
