Teach in UAE State Schools

Join the hundreds of international teachers who accept teaching posts annually with government agencies who are contributing to the learning of the UAE’s future leaders.

Teaching across the seven Emirates of the UAE

Teachanywhere is delighted to have been selected as a preferred supplier to government agencies Emirates Schools Establishment (ESE) and the Federal Authority of Early Childhood Education (FAEE).  Every year they hire hundreds of international teachers to work in the UAE state school system with the aim of leading the national effort to develop the public education sector across the UAE.  Teaching with these agencies will afford you a great professional development opportunity, working in a new cultural context in a warm and welcoming country whilst earning a great tax free salary.


Great opportunities all year round

The key start dates for ESE and FAEE is August and January every year but due to the size of the opportunity - hiring operates all year round.  Please note that due to the size of this emirate wide operation you are able to express a location preference but cannot be guaranteed your first choice location.  If you have family already in the UAE - every effort will be made to accommodate your wishes.  You’ll be afforded the opportunity to teach a blend of national and international curricula with access to advanced technology in educational delivery (including digital learning platforms). 

Living and working in the UAE

Take advantage of the great lifestyle offerings of all seven emirates in the UAE.  The UAE is a hugely welcoming country and offers something for everyone from the big city lights of Dubai and Abu Dhabi, to coastal delights in places such as Fujairah and the mountainous beauty of Ras Al Khaimah.  Those with a love of the outdoors love the lifestyle of Al Ain and if you’re looking for a more authentic cultural experience try Sharjah on Dubai’s doorstep!  The UAE is a great starting point for global exploration - all made possible with an incentivising tax free salary!
