The main way that this ADEC MOE merger will impact teachers is that ADEC is no longer hiring new teachers. Now any teachers interested in teaching in public schools in the UAE will have to apply through the Ministry of Education (MOE), which up until this point has been responsible for public schools in all emirates, besides Abu Dhabi. This means that the contract originally offered by ADEC has changed and that all new foreign teachers will now be signing a contract with the MOE.
Naturally this announcement has caused some confusion and upset amongst teachers considering teaching abroad in the UAE which is why we’ve compared the old ADEC contract with the MOE contract currently being offered to teachers and highlighted the main differences below.
