Questions & Answers

The requirement to teach Primary school in UAE is having a Bachelors in Education. Hope that helps!
Yes, you'll need to legalize your employment documents before a school in Saudi can apply for your Iqama.
Unfortunately that experience probably would not be sufficient. They are looking for full classroom experience with a relevant grade level. However you're still welcome to apply so we can fully assess your experience & qualifications. IE; if have a degree in education with student teaching, that could work.
Absolutely! Here's the current visual art roles we're recruiting for https://www.teachingnomad.com/job-search?search_line=&filte… . I expect many more to open up over the next couple months.

Teaching Nomad paved our way to UAE!

Lauren from Teaching Nomad connected to me for teaching opportunities in UAE on a Saturday morning January 5 2019, submitted our documents via email in the afternoon (mine and my wife's), scheduled the interview the next day Sunday afternoon, and in the evening signed the initial offer as couple teachers in a school in UAE! That was incredibly fast and I would like to commend Lauren for staying late at night to make sure we get a place for the interview. All these things and we didn't spend a cent for the process. Also, I find the website very helpful, it answers most of the concerns like about the schools, visa, benefits, and about the transition process of moving in a new country. Thank you teaching nomad for opening this amazing opportunity!

Couldn’t have asked for a better experience with teaching nomad

My process went pretty well. I didn’t know what to necessarily expect but Yiqin was very helpful throughout the process . She gave me lots of feedback and answered my questions in such a timely manner . She kept me updated on incoming positions in the UAE, and I was able to secure a position fairly quickly after i sent in all of my paperwork. I am grateful for her time and commitment to helping me find a position that met my needs ! Thank you so very much Yiqin!

Awesome Experience

I had a great experience working with Teaching Nomad. They responded to my emails quickly and went above and beyond what they needed to, to make sure I was well prepared for my interview. They helped before and after and answered any questions they could. After my interview they followed up and helped me with my next step. I would recommend using them if you are interested in teaching abroad.

Incredible support by a dedicated team

Sophia and the Teaching Nomad team gave me the best support I've ever had by a recruiting agency in finding a job. They responded within 24-48 hours by email, they were always polite and professional and they really listened to what I wanted and helped me find the right positions instead of pushing unnecessary ones on to me. I would reuse their services again any day. Thank you so much for your help!

Excellent Service

I had an excellent experience with Teaching Nomad. My recruiter Sophia was a wonderful resource. She had visited the school I interviewed with, and gave me good positive information about the school and hiring process. I am happy with the overall service of this company. I was offered a position in the UAE as a high school assistant principal. Thank you again Teaching Nomad for all of your help. :)

Pleased to recommend Teaching Nomad

I recently got my second teaching job in China with the expert help of Nomad. They supported me every step of the way, preparing my pre-interview, contacting references, and making an effective first introduction to the opportunities they "hand picked" for me. Pleased to recommend them as a first-rate placement service in China!

What would you improve about this program?
Some general advice might be, as with any job opportunity, the candidate should do their "homework" about the future school's financial and operating situation, and prospects for stability or growth going forward.

Hassle free job placement

From the beginning, Teaching Nomad has been very supportive and encouraging of my teaching endeavors. All I had to do was tell them exactly what I was looking for in a job, and they were able to find me a teaching position based on the criteria I provided. I will now be working with children in Shanghai and could not be any happier. Teaching Nomad guided me through the whole application and interview process for my new job, and I can honestly say that they had my best interests at heart. The never hesitated to answer any of my questions, offered as much help as they could, and were very professional throughout the entire process. I got some really good insight on life in Shanghai from my recruiter, which was really comforting.
Teaching Nomad will figure out what it is that you want and need, find you a suitable placement, and guide you every step of the way. Finding a job in China was MUCH easier than I expected. You can't go wrong!

Thanks again, Ollie!
