About Qatar

With a large and expanding expat community already based in the country, you’ll find the main requirement is for qualified teachers to teach the British or US curriculum. School days start earlier than most countries due to the sometimes overwhelming heat, and teachers benefit from earlier finishes – allowing you the rest of the day to explore gorgeous beaches and futuristic cities!

As the country grows, international schools continue to appear, which means plenty of vacancies in Qatar schools. Opportunities are plentiful, but it’s recommended to carry out thorough research on every school before you apply. Excellent benefit packages are available, including free housing or an allowance, health care insurance, annual round-trip flights and some schools even throw in shipping, settling in and transportation allowances. It’s not difficult to see why so many people pursue a teaching career in Qatar.
