HI All,

My first post on here! Please be kind :)
So, my husband and I have made the decision to move abroad and Dubai is one of our possible destinations. My husband would gain a teaching role in an international school, but I potentially could be on a sabbatical from work and so can't technically work whilst over in Dubai. I have a number of questions I would love if you can answer:
1. Is there any volunteering or other roles to do over in Dubai. Although I won't be working, I don't want to do nothing at all!
2. What is the cost of living? (accommodation and utilities paid for by the school).
3. Are there any restrictions living in Dubai?
4. What's the maternity and paternity pay/leave like?

Thanks everyone :)

1. very few.
2. Read the Stickies - all your answers are there - and use the search facilities. there are more questions and answers about Teachers coming to Dubai than any other topic I think.
3. Yes and No. the question is too broad. What did you have in mind ?
3. What pay (practically) ? Its extremely expensive here so easier and cheaper to have kids at home.

No reason why you couldn't work while in UAE - sabattical or not, its none of the business of the UK what you do when here.
