Teaching Assistant jobs and training?

Postby Ravs » Sun 8 Feb 2009 16:40 GMT

My husband has just accepted a job in Dubai and we will be moving across in August from the UK. When we move I would like a career change and go into teaching. However, I do not have a degree so thought I'd try Teaching Assistant first, and if I like it, further down the line perhaps try my hand at further study and training to be a teacher.

Will it be easy to get a Teaching Assistant job in Dubai around the Jumeirah area? Any advice on any training or courses I can do in Dubai to help me move into teaching, or to start with become a teaching assistant.

Any advice appreciated on what to do out there, or in prepartion here in the UK before we leave at the end of July.

Find the websites (Google) for Jumeirah Primary School (JPS), Jumeirah English Speaking School (JESS) and Dubai English Speaking School (DESS).

Send them your CV plus a covering letter of your experiences, plus what you think you might bring to a job as TA.

Otherwise, call the major schools when you arrive/send CV etc.

Recruitment for TA's is happening now. DESS are definitely looking for TA's

Teaching Job in Dubai

There are a lot of schools in Dubai looking out for Teaching Assistants. Especially UK/USA citizens have an extra advantage due to English being the first language. However, Dubai is attracting a lot of qualified Teachers from across the globe, and hence a Teachers degree is quite essential in securing a good Teaching job in Dubai.

I advise you to also send your Resume over to some of the Top recruiters in Dubai, including those who specialise in recruiting for the education sector.

All The Best!
