As a result of exciting expansion plans, a network of oil company schools located across Abu Dhabi emirate seek additional teachers for the 2016-17 school year. The schools are recently or newly built with many high technology features, as befitting the première schools for prestigious state oil company employees.

The group employ a US curriculum and are modelled after a well respected US private school, and they serve a mainly host national cohort. With top-of-the-line employment packages and state of the art resources, the schools seek teachers who have at least 2 years of post qualification teaching experience using the US, Canadian, UK, Irish, Australian or NZ curricula. Because these are 'local international' type schools, they seek teachers who are confident in their teaching, who are culturally adaptable and also professionally flexible. Experience of teaching children who are acquiring English is helpful, but these are not jobs teaching English as a foreign languages. The curriculum is delivered in English, and class sizes are small - no more than 24.

The schools are located throughout the emirate of Abu Dhabi and teachers can be considered for all schools to increase their chances, or can express a preference for a particular location.

Regional Info:
Abu Dhabi is the largest of the United Arab Emirates with over 80 percent of the land mass, and is also its capital. There are a number of cities in Abu Dhabi including (somewhat confusingly) Abu Dhabi city, the oasis city of Al Ain and the emerging cities of Liwa, Al Ruwais and Madinat Zayed. Whilst its near neighbour Dubai often gets the spotlight for tourism, Abu Dhabi has just as much to offer the international teacher. Abu Dhabi City has restaurants, clubs, and world class sporting events. Al Ain is a beautiful garden city that is literally an oasis sitting 1 hr from both Dubai and Abu Dhabi cities. Liwa is also an oasis city, and Al Ruwais is a planned city towards the western edge of Abu Dhabi that sprang up in the 1970s to harvest the abundant oil and gas on which the finances of Abu Dhabi are dependent. Teachers wishing to live and work in Abu Dhabi will find it a relatively easy place to live and work. They should be culturally aware and professionally flexible; and in turn they will be rewarded with a more authentic cultural experience in this influential, vibrant and western-friendly country.
