Must have British teaching experience and be able to teach up to A-Level.

Located in the Northern Emirates on a spectacular rugged coastline this well established and well respected private co-educational school is seeking experienced teachers for the next academic year.

The school is a member of the British Schools of the Middle East and caters for a predominant local population of children, over 600, from KG to Year 13, offering an adapted version of the National Curriculum of England and Wales. Although the school is heavily British flavoured in terms of the curriculum and teaching staff, this is very much of a national school with western expatriates, reflecting an ethos and culture that relates to a more traditional Arabian community. Applicants need to be aware that this is not a typical western expatriate school.

Applicants are preferred to offer at least 2 years post qualifying experience and have a substantial background of teaching the National Curriculum of England & Wales. Secondary teachers should be able to offer A-level experience. Ideally they should also have a background of teaching ESL students and offer a solid IT skill set. A collaborative style and a resilient attitude are just some of the attributes that will serve a teacher well in a setting that demands a positive approach to student learning, the ability to adapt teaching styles to accommodate variety in learning strategies, an involvement in the extra-curricular activities and an energetic contribution to the whole school community.

In return, the school offers a tax free monthly salary depending on experience, local medical insurance, single furnished accommodation, annual flights, a settling in allowance, payment of reasonable utilities and a gratuity payment.

Applicants must be happy to live and work in a remoter and more local location where conservative behaviour and a deep understanding and appreciation of traditions are expected. The area is rapidly developing and although there is much better shopping these days offering familiar retail outlet names and cinemas, not to mention an attractive array of beachside hotels offering an assortment of aquatic and sporting activities, the variety will be less than larger cities; road links to Dubai means a journey time of just over an hour for weekend excursions.

This is an exciting time to consider combining the opportunity to work in a structured, progressively developing school of strong and supportive leadership with the chance to experience the adventurous and cultural lifestyles of traditional Arabia, with some of the west thrown in for good measure!

Regional Info:
Fujairah is positioned on the east coast of the UAE peninsula a great location for fishing and diving. Fujairah is a quieter city but it still has a range of developing attractions for western expatriates; they boast a huge mall, Fujairah City Centre http://fujairahcitycentre.com/ , and the usual cinemas and hotels (and since 2000 a few bars) where drinking alcohol is allowed (all the hotels have bars within them). Hotels are a good place to enjoy the various sporting activities and beaches. Fujairah is just over an hour from Dubai by car (and there are buses as well) and it’s close to the border of Oman. Unlike Dubai and Abu Dhabi which are mostly flat, Fujairah is mountainous and although still hot (with temperatures of about 20 degrees in winter and up to about 40 in summer) it does have a higher annual rainfall. Watersports (such as windsurfing, waterskiing, diving etc) are popular and apparently the city of Diba (about 30km away from Fujairah City) is the place to go for good sunny beaches, fishing etc). Being so close to Dubai many go there for weekend excursions or they head off to Wadis to hike and camp. The UAE is the perfect launching spot for travel to other countries in the Middle East. https://youtu.be/O6ai5ldD9B4
