Teaching In Riyadh

Recommended Posts

I received this in an e-mail ...

 

======================

 

I am helping to recruit brothers and sisters who are interested in

teaching English in Riyadh. There are many positions available and

can start as soon as Jan 2008, but if you can't start that early you

can always delay. Send your cv to info[at]amalstudio(contact admin if its a beneficial link) before Wed

14th Nov (interviews are on Fri 16th in London). I'll be honest, as

long as you meet the requirements below you've pretty much got the

job insha-Allah :sl:

 

Excellent package:

- £1250/month salary tax free!

- Housing allowance (equivalent to 2 month salary)

- Two-years teaching contracts, with visa sponsorship and renewal

opportunities.

- Annual vacation with 1 month pay leave.

- OT pay

- One annual round trip ticket

- Medical insurance

- The opportunity to apply with a partner (note: for sisters

applying, you need a mahram to travel to KSA)

 

Requirements:

- Are native speakers of English from UK, USA, Canada, or Australia

- Hold a Bachelor Degree (if degree is in English or related

subject, then you can get away with not having tefl certificate)

- Have a TEFL certificate of some kind (CELTA, TESOL, TEFL, Etc). If

you have serious intention for working in Riyadh, then at least

start a course such as you are not allowed to post links yetonlinetefl(contact admin if its a beneficial link) or a weekend course such

as you are not allowed to post links yeti-to-i(contact admin if its a beneficial link) and then apply to me asap.

- Experience is preferable but not essential.

I do not know the cost of living, and I am assuming it is in British pounds (which when doubled roughly equals its value in dollars) and you have to understand that in the career direction I am taking (teaching) there isn't a great deal of money. In fact, assuming I decided to teach locally I would only be making half that amount, provided I am doing the math correctly.

 

 

Besides, the opportunity to learn about another country, especially one as important to the world economy and international diplomacy as Saudi Arabia is, would be worth doing the work for free. In my opinion.

Salam,

 

Maybe using the Middle East standard for the salary of English teacher, £1250/month is still considered low? There is always constant demand for English teachers in the region. Private English lessons are also popular and it is a lucrative way of supplementing incomes. You may also offer them as a second job.

 

Teaching abroad is a nice way to learn more about another culture ...

 

Wassalam,

Y

wow, I am almost as excited as seacow

I am currently working on my bachelors degree (3rd year)

and I have taken the first half of my Tesol certificate program.

although I do not plan on going into the education field, this could provide me with a year paid vacation :sl:

Thank you for the info brother Yasnov

I love to teach, and I shall be learning Arabic next year, and after graduation I would love to live in a region that speaks it so I may practice.

 

I have no need to live richly.

 

Thank you very much for this info!
