    Hi guys, what are the IELTS requirements for MOE UAE teaching jobs. In case a teacher scores lower than the required bands for a teaching position then how this is settled. Is there anyone who can share his or her experience about this.

    Your school HR should tell you what documents need attestation. ..usually your police check like CRB Scotland and your latest degree possibly more

    DON'T DO IT!!! - seriously it is a very poor salary and local government schools are notoriously badly run and the children poorly behaved.

    Accommodation is essential. Don't accept without it. Rents are way too expensive, you cannot afford it from your salary.

    No I didn't, but I know somebody who did and I also worked in a decent school in the UAE so am familiar with the MOE school situation.

    Not all MOE school are as bad as described. However, it does seem that they want to phase out foreign teachers over the next few years. Salary seems to be dropping too and they dont like to provide accommodation but provide an allowance instead which isnt a good idea as what they give would allow for a basic apartment.

    I look forward to the day that a school in one of the Gulf States has 100% local students been taught by 100% local staff!

    When oil hits 25usd/barrel it might get a bit chilly in hell. I notice in the KSA a sudden rush to privatize many state companies. Private companies dont like employing natives as they only do one hours work a month!

    That is what they call "Emiratisation" in the UAE. Theoretically, it sounds reasonable; they just want to decrease the level of dependence to foreing qualified workforce as much as possible. However, if a country's 'citizens' to 'residents' ratio is like 1 to 8, it is not that easy. Particularly when most of the citizens are complaining that they still live in a skyscraper with 5 rooms and 5 bathrooms, but not in a villa with 9 rooms and 9 bathrooms with private swimming pool, and waiting for their sheikh to allocate one without doing anything that could count as 'working'.

    As regular readers on the pachyderm's online ramblings will know well, we were in Qatar for five years. During that time, I never met one, single, solitary Qatari teacher. I never met anyone who had met a Qatari teacher. I met teachers from just about every other country you could think of, but not even one from Qatar itself. It was the same story in the KSA and in the UAE. Therefore does it seem likely that lots of Emiratis or Saudis or Qataris are going to be working in education sometime in the near future? Probably not. Yes, they might reduce the salaries and the benefits for foreign teachers - that seems to be happening already - but not much else will change.

  16. I'm working in the UAE. 'WorkawakRecruitment' set me up with a lot of interviews and took one of the schools. Sign up with a few and take best offers, these where best when I was looking.

    Hi todd89,

    I was wondering if you would mind sharing what the interview day entailed. I have been told to prepare for a 1 hour exam, a mini micro teach and a short interview. This seems very broad as PE covers a wide range of areas, as you know. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Apart from work away recruitment, what other places managed to get you interviews?

    Also do you have a degree in your teaching subject? I've seen the UAE schools mention this many times
