Abu Dhabi

Not just a millionaire’s playground, Abu Dhabi has something for everyone and is sympathetic to western life, unlike some of the slightly more conservative rulers in the region. Its rapid rise to being one of the leading employment hubs in the world makes it an attractive proposition for those with a busy and social lifestyle.

Abu Dhabi, UAE


The second largest of the seven Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi boasts an astonishing skyline including the Etihad Towers, Capital Gate and the Landmark. The construction boom in the region paved the way for some of the best venues in the word but lesser known are the thousands of parks and gardens and hundreds of miles of coast Abu Dhabi has. Popular with expats, living here does not come cheap but with tax free salaries and the possibility of subsidised accommodation and return flights home, Abu Dhabi is attracting more teachers to lead its education drive.

Teaching in Abu Dhabi


From the Abu Dhabi Education Council (ADEC) who hire hundreds of teachers through Teachanywhere each year, to all of the international schools which are already here and those which are still opening - opportunity is good. However, its popularity with western teachers means that it is equally as competitive.  As well as requiring two years’ post qualifying experience in most cases, Abu Dhabi has complex ministry requirements for visas and it can be something of a moving feast - make sure you discuss your eligibility to teach in Abu Dhabi with one of Teachanywhere’s expert team.

Teachanywhere will navigate your eligibility status and ensure you are presented in the best way to ensure the best chance of success. If you aren’t right for the international school options - why not discuss the ADEC opportunities and widen your net?
