Yea its all ok. Bit more difficult for me as I've been out of a teaching for a few years so I'm digging up all my documents.

I sent off my certificates today for Attestation. Credit card took a wack there but hopefully it will be all be returned within 10 days.

As I'm not currently working in a school I've given my CRB from 2013. Not sure if it's any good but I'll soon find out.

MrMM, you're teaching at Silicon Oasis in Sept '15, right? Subject?

Nah, GEMS Wellington Al Khail in September.
Yeah am thinking I might send an old one or do as the previous poster wrote and get my current school to apply for one for me!

Hiya! Yes I did finally hear from them but they wouldn't include hubby and 3rd kid in the package (medical, tuition etc - they only pay for 2) so Im going for another offer who cover the whole family
Congrats tho it's so exciting right? What subject are you?

Hi MUM3

I am currently looking at schools to apply for jobs. I too have 3 children and noticed most seem to only offer free schooling for 2 children. Would you be able to tell me which school has offered you the whole family?

Congrats on the job, you will all have an amazing time out there. We are wanting to relocate to be closer to family so fingers crossed we get something sorted.

Any advice you could give me would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Jen

Hey guys,

I just found this thread and thought I ask you all how you find GEMS First Point and life in Dubai?

I too am joining Gems First Point this September 2016.

Can you please give me any information on GEMS First Point as a school? Is it a good place to work?

I have also been told that, as yet, the accommodation has not been confirmed but said that Silicon Oasis was where recruited teachers last year (2015) were accommodated.

Do you know anything about the area in general or the accommodation?

I'm concerned I might be out in the middle of nowhere with no facilities around me

Any advice would be appreciated as I'm completely new to life in Dubai.

Thank you.

Also just returned from a weeks trip out there and hired a car. Took a drive out to silicone oasis and it looks the part. The apartment blocks look very new and modern and the area it's self has some cafes and restaurants as well as shops etc. It only took 25 mins driving slow from the city. Think it would be a nice place to live as it's a lot quieter than the city.

Hey, Silicon Oasis is a nice place to live, it has all the facilities you could ask for. However, you would need a car. Downtown is around 20-25 minutes drive, Marina & JBR around 35-45 minutes drive. The beaches are anything from 30 to 45 minutes drive.
