Are you looking for a great opportunity to teach English in the Middle East?
Well look no further because Qatar is the perfect destination for you.
It is commonplace to think that only more experienced teachers get the high paying and desirable jobs, but this doesn’t have to be the case.
Those with a little bit of teaching experience can usually land good positions teaching English in Qatar.
Teaching in Qatar is something that I decided to do a few years ago. I’d known a lot of teachers here and it sounded like a fun and exciting place to live with nice weather, social life, as well as for my wife and I.
So we decided to jump at the chance. It’s now three years later, and we have loved every minute of it. We’re still here and don’t plan on going anywhere anytime soon. Whether you’re just looking into teaching in Qatar, or are already here, but feel like you haven’t quite figured out about “Qatar jobs for USA teaching” and how this place works yet, hopefully you find the following useful:
English teachers have competitive edge
If you have experience as an English teacher, you have a competitive edge for getting a job.
Qatar is a country in transition. The small nation has seen a huge growth in its population over the last few years and there are many new people settling in.
To meet the needs of this emerging population, the government has developed the education system. English is now the most widely spoken language, and teaching it is becoming an important job.
If you have experience as an English teacher, you have a competitive edge for getting a job. Qatar has a large number of universities and colleges that offer courses on teaching English to children as young as five years old. You may find work at any of these schools.
Great salary and benefits
Many people who choose to teach abroad do so because they want to save up as much money as possible during their time teaching. There are a number of destinations around the world that can offer high salaries, but a lot of people don’t realize that Qatar is one of those places.
Qatar is situated on the coast of the Persian Gulf and offers people fantastic opportunities for those who want to take the plunge and move there. Whether you want to teach English in Qatar or elsewhere, you will find there are many benefits which make it a great place to work and live if you want to save up money.
Live in one of the most exciting cities in the world
Teaching English in Qatar is a great way to live in one of the most exciting cities in the world, while also earning tax free income. If you’re not familiar with the country, it’s probably best known to Westerners as being the host of the 2022 World Cup. This is a major event for the nation, and will make it a global hub for sports and entertainment.
One of the biggest draws of teaching English in Qatar is that you’ll be living in Doha, a modern city known for its architecture, museums and other cultural attractions. If you love sunny beaches, there are plenty of those as well. Many expats have described Doha as having something for everyone.
You’ll meet people from all over the world
In addition to being home to many Qatari citizens, Doha plays host to expats from many nations. You can easily meet people from Europe, Africa, Asia, South America and beyond. This will help you grow personally by expanding your horizons and showing you new things about different cultures and ways of life.
It may not seem like it because of its small geographical size, but Qatar has a rich cultural history that is evident in its museums and historical villages. Since teachers have plenty of free time after work, you can explore these places on your weekends off or during school breaks.
A top notch school system
There are several international schools in Qatar, offering high standards of education to students from all over the world. The curriculum taught at these schools is generally either British or American, so if you’re native to either of those countries (or Canada), then you’ll have a better chance of getting hired. You can also expand your horizons by applying to teach at private schools that follow Indian, Turkish or Pakistani curricula. You may need to familiarize yourself with the curriculum prior to accepting your position if it isn’t one that you’re familiar with.
Furthermore, you will enjoy great benefits such as free training and continuing education, housing allowance, flight reimbursement bonuses, and more.
