Qatar and Teach Away

I went to Qatar right after teaching in Abu Dhabi. The process was surprisingly easy, even though I was already overseas and I ended up having a Skype interview arranged with the school almost right after I had applied. My placement coordinator helped me by recommending sites for research on the school and the country. The international school I ended up being placed at provided great benefits and really took care of its teachers. I thank Teach Away and my coordinator for connecting me!

My New Adventure

I decided to teach overseas because I wanted a bit of an adventure. Growing up overseas, I always enjoyed experiencing new cultures and traditions (and food!). I also wanted to learn from teachers who are from other parts of the world!! I hope to gain new teaching methods and practices from my colleagues. I just want to grow as a teacher and as a person. I didn't really know what to expect when I applied to Teach Away. I had my phone interview talking with Mia. While it was an interview, I felt like she was encouraging me through my answers. After I accepted my job, Mia continued to answer any questions that popped into my head. The webinars that they hosted were informative. I guess in saying all of this is that the recruitment process of Teach Away has surpassed my expectations.

Questions & Answers

Hi there –– Schools in the UAE will typically ask candidates to have a current teaching license from your local government relevant to whatever subject you wish to teach or a TESL/TEFL certification. However, they do sometimes offer "new graduate" programs where a candidate with only a bachelor's degree can apply. You can find that program here: https://www.teachaway.com/teaching-jobs-abroad...

Hi Victor –– You will find most teaching jobs in Qatar require you to hold a teaching license but there are some schools that will hire teachers who only hold a bachelor's degree. Please take a look at the positions on our website to learn more! https://www.teachaway.com/teach-in-qatar

Hi Sara, Sorry for the delay in responding. Your degree, TEFL certification and experience is definitely enough for your to apply to this role. We encourage you to apply. Good luck!
