Default Teaching in Dubai

Hi

I have an a couple of interviews for schools in Dubai next week and have read on here that most interviews are pretty informal. Did anyone else find this or can they be quite intense?

Also, could someone advise me what salary I could expect to get? I am a secondary school teacher with 11 years experience.

Cheers

According to American School of Dubai
$35,000-$58,000 annually
as of this week. They also offer free tuition for your kids.
The pay depends on the school.

Private schools do not necessarily offer fee tuition for the children of teachers - I know schools which don't even offer discounts on tuition to teachers.

You should look at the overall salary package the school is offering, not just the salary - ensure you also have annual return airfares for your and your family, medical insurance for you and your family, appropriate accommodation for you and your family, tuition or at least part tuition for children, plus a good monthly salary. If they don't offer all these benefits, ensure that the salary is large enough to core all these things - tuition and accommotion are huge in Dubai and will make a seemingly good salary disappear very quickly. Also, if they don't provide accommotion, remember that you will more than likely be required to pay the lease one year in advance, so you would need a rather large sum of money depending upon the size of apt or villa you need to accommodate you and your family.
