Until recently Jordan was an undiscovered ancient kingdom at the doorstep of Asia, Africa and Europe but has now become of one of the must-visit countries in the Middle East. It’s most famous attraction is the site of Petra, which consists of tombs and temples carved into sandstone cliffs in the southwestern desert. It also has access to the Dead Sea while stunning beaches at Aqaba make it a popular resort.  Schools are in urban areas and teachers can expect a high standard of facilities to serve a mix of locals and expatriates.

Teaching in Jordan


With strong salaries and a small number of credible international schools in its city hubs Jordan is a real alternative to the more familiar Middle East options.  Teachers should have two years post qualifying experience in most cases and can enjoy a slightly more relaxed and outdoorsy way of life.

Travel Highlights


One day for Petra - Petra is one of the world’s most iconic heritage sites and should be on your to-do list but one day there is usually enough.

Directions off the cuff - Maps in Jordan are readily available but not always 100% accurate. Get used to navigating using landmarks.

Like olives? - Jordan is one of the largest olive producers in the world so you will find them in a lot of local dishes.

Peaceful - The general perception of Jordan is that it is a hostile place to live but cultures and communities are actually respectful of each other and live harmoniously.

Visit Mars...- Wadi Rum is a red desert and that has been used to make movies set on Mars.
