Teaching English in Middle East

Schools in Middle Eastern nations such as Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Jordan, Egypt, and the United Arab Emirates have a crucial requirement for certified English teachers. The University classes conducted in a few of the Arab nations are taught in English.

Besides, the prime location of the region at the crossroads of the East and West has transformed urban areas like Dubai into pure leisure and commercial hubs where most of the communication takes place in English. Most of the jobs in the education sector in wealthy Gulf countries are meant for experienced teachers who are TEFL certified with a bachelors’ or masters’ in education.

Individuals who are qualified enough to be selected for the available teaching positions enjoy the perks of high salary packages, that range from $2,500 to $6,000 with added benefits such as free housing and flights to and from their home country.

The pay scale is comparatively lower in countries like Jordan, Turkey, Morocco, and Egypt but such job profiles require only a four-year degree or less, apart from a TEFL/TESOL certification. Moreover, the low cost of living in these countries does not make living much difficult even with the low pay. There are several opportunities to include oneself in one of the great regions in the world, famous for its history and culture.

Key Points regarding teaching English abroad in the Middle East:

  • Advance meetings are the best way to get some work for most of the available job
  • openings in the Gulf Countries like Oman, Bahrain, Qatar, UA, Saudi Arabia, and Kuwait.
  • Adherence to nearby social standards is a common thing to practice for the teachers and could be drastically unique from what the Western world practices. Few districts may have limitations on individual freedom or choices, for example, dressing styles or the option to consume liquor can vary country wise, including regional contrasts within certain nations.

Asian College of Teachers (ACT) undertakes a continuous review of its teacher training courses to ensure imparting high quality education. However, there might be circumstances outside of ACT’s control which might affect its stakeholders like if you are planning to teach in a different country, applying for a teaching license, pursuing higher studies or trying to get the certificate approved by the Ministry of Education (MoE) of a particular country then you can do so with the certificate issued by Asian College of Teachers (ACT). However, each country’s Ministry of Education (MoE) or educational bodies set certain standards that are indispensable for the pursuit of higher studies or teaching in schools in that country. So it can be a possibility that you may be able to use the certificate for higher studies or teaching purposes in one country and not in another. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you investigate thoroughly and check with the relevant authorities regarding the acceptance of the certificate issued by us before you enrol on a particular course. ACT strives to offer high-quality education and its certificates can be valuable for various purposes internationally, but still it is crucial for individuals to verify the specific recognition of the certificate in the country they intend to use it, especially for formal education or professional licensing purposes. This approach ensures that the stakeholders make informed decisions regarding their educational and career paths.
