Maybe not Portuguese so much, but English and German possibly although schools are likely to prefer native speakers of those languages. Best way to find a good job is to apply directly to schools you want to teach at, or use one of the specialised teaching job agencies, or look in the TES or TIE.

Contact them directly. Or consider ADEC - they were on a big recruitment drive for expat teachers and advisers for their PPP program..

O/seas hire probably gets salary+accommodation+flights+medical. But if you're on husband sponsorship then you'll only get salary. Wild guess is 6k-10k per month. They never had a reputation for being generous.

Default Schools info

Hello, new on here, spent a bit of time reading through the relevant posts before registering, now time for a question!

I just learned that i will be reassigned from my present location to Dubai, most likely arriving in early January, i have a 10 year old daughter and will need to find an International school ASAP for her, i have gone through most of the threads and can see that school places can be hard to get and applications should be submitted well in advance.

Does anybody have any recent experience, are there still long waiting lists even though i believe that many expats have recently left? has it got any easier to obtain places at short notice?
Her current school follows the US curiculum and i would prefer her to continue with this type of school, i have not contacted any schools yet, but will be doing so soon.

Thanks DBG.

dbg - We are in the process of moving to Dubai as well. I have 2 daughters, 7th and 4th Grade. I also wanted US/IB curriculum.
It looks like we will have a spot at the Dubai American Academy - I chose this over the American School of Dubai because of the IB diploma option because that was very important to me. If you are not concerned about the IB program, I believe ASD has a great reputation amongst the US curriculum schools, I have a friend with a younger child there that has been very happy.

Because it was really hard to wade through all the information about the schools and had concerns about getting 2 children placed in the same school, we ended up hiring the services of great educational consultant. She is a former teacher herself and has lived in Dubai for a number of years. She really has a good handle on the current issues going on with most of the schools and has personal relationships with the registrars. She has an extensive interview with you and looks over your child's school records to help you narrow down your options and then she does all the work from there - she filled out all the applications, "presented" our family to the schools of our choice...and she seemed to get us spots in waitlisted years. She really works on what is in the best interests for your child - I really was aprehensive about paying for this service...but I researched her and her references, and everyone I have come across has been more than satisfied with her services.

If you get to 5 posts and want to send me a message, I'd be happy to pass along her contact details if you are finding it difficult to get this done on your own.

Good luck! I should be arriving around the same time as you, and I have a 10 year old daughter as well! Maybe we can compare notes!

Tdzankl, thanks for that bit of info, i already have an application at DAA, waiting to hear back from them and hopefully on the wait list.

This has been a new experience for me, in the last 20 years all my other kids attended schools overseas, but i always worked in places were there were less expats and there was never a problem getting a place in a school and in some of the places i worked there was only one International school!

Thanks again for the info, i will see how i get on with my application, if i get to five posts i will be in touch, DBG.
