I am Oluwaseyitan Emmanuel from Nigeria, graduate of chemistry education from a reputable university in Nigeria.
I'll love to teach chemistry in a UAE secondary school. Pls how do I secure one? Looking at the high competitiveness.
Hi Emmanuel ;
UAE is a very competitive market and i recommend you to read the below carefully.
In terms of UAE the general requirements across the board include (this might chnage with time):
1. A Bachelor's degree, at minimum
2. A current teaching license from your local government, relevant to whatever subject you wish to teach (for example, if you wanted to teach math, you will need a teaching license in math; a TESL or TEFL is not a teaching license)
3. Two years of relevant teaching experience at the required teaching level (for example, if you were applying to teach high school level English, then you would need to have had at least two years of teaching high school English; elementary or middle school level would not be accepted)
4. A TESL/TEFL certification is not required for all positions, but it would certainly make you a more competitive candidate
I recommend you go to the job board and have a look at the positions you are interested in and qualify for and start applying
Good luck with your applications
