There is a section in the 'Explorer' book covering Dubai that deals with temporary placement work and names the department that would need to be contacted. Have not got the book with me otherwise I would be a bit more specific.

Students and family members as far as I am aware can work for companies as per there understanding of the situation (part time student). If you are on your father, mother or husbands visa you can work with their permission if you get a contract from the company and obtain a Labour Card from the ministry of Labour. There are more details involved in this process but it is possible.
i would be more than happy to help if you get in touch with me.

I work at an "international" school in the UAE. Not all "international" schools are equal, some are local schools that provide a curriculum derived from elsewhere. This means that English second language students are force fed through a program equivalent to their native speaking peers in situ. Typically second language speakers are at least 2 years behind their native speaking peers and forcing them through the same material based on age is frankly ludicrous and does not achieve results to anyone's satisfaction with the exception of the private company who hosts the fracas. Parents should be asking why is my ESL child doing the same curriculum as a native speaker of the same age; why am I being charged for access to the IB when my child does not have the competence required and what measures is the school taking to bridge the gap, why am I paying for year 12 IB when the most that can be achieved is lower level certification that students back in program of origin can do in Grade 10.
Essentially what is happening here is that private education is exploiting the naivety of parents and an abundant cash flow.

I don't know if anyone can help - but which schools would be best for A Levels - my son is at the end of his first year at a college in England and we are thinking of moving him for the second year out here as my husband has a job here now.

It's better for teachers than the Al Mamzar branch if you're teaching boys. Girls section at Al Mamzar is ok, boys section isn't. Admin and management will probably be irritating to unpleasant to deal with going on past anecdotal accounts.

If you have other options, consider them before signing up for Al Ittihad.

Al Ittihad Private School Jumeirah
Al Ittihad School Mamzar
