Living & Teaching in the UAE

The United Arab Emirates consist of seven emirates – Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Ajman, Ras al-Khaimah, Fujairah and Umm Al-Quwain. Of these, Dubai is the most well known – a dazzling world-class city which has quickly become a major hub for expats living abroad. However, each of these distinct regions has its own unique charm and offerings and guarantees to be a wonderful setting to begin your teaching abroad adventure.

Wherever you end up in the UAE, you can expect to be greeted with warmth and be no more than two hours away from downtown Dubai. When teaching in the UAE, it’s very easy to meet new people, including other foreign teachers and expats – with lots of social events and groups available – everything from sports teams to lively nightlife! Footprints teachers say that the international ambiance and the diversity of colleagues, both local and foreign, you get to know during your time in the country is one of the highlights and makes the transition from home to the UAE very easy.

Here is what Footprints teachers say about teaching in the UAE:

“I had and continue to have great relationship with footprints since they recruited me for a job in the United Arab Emirates. They provide all information and guide you to secure your dream overseas job. They are highly recommended.” – Kenneth

“Firstly I would like to Thank Footpints for giving me this position. I am very happy with my school. Every school has its up and downs but with time the school has started to grow on me. I have learnt a lot from this place. The staff is great and so is the management.” – Hajra
