Living in the UAE

With year-round sunshine, a tax-free salary and endless career development opportunities, Dubai is one of the major players in the international teaching market. Whether you enjoy spending your weekends dune bashing and cycling the desert tracks, or indulging in some retail therapy before a dip in the sea - Dubai has it all. It's a great place to develop yourself professionally, while enjoying an enriching life outside of the workplace. At Taaleem we are proud and privileged to operate some of the leading schools in the UAE, led by outstanding teachers from all over the world. Our schools are located across Dubai and Abu Dhabi, catering to the British, IB and American curricula, so we always look for a diverse and inspiring teaching body who are looking to help educate and develop the future generations. 

Al Mizar American Academy

Al-Mizar American Academy (AAM) was developed to provide a nurturing and rigorous American education for girls aged 3 to 18 years. A key reason for choosing the US curriculum was inspired by the American philosophy to educate the individual, who in-turn contributes to their community and beyond. The Common Core curriculum offers students multiple perspectives of life, both from the past and the 21st century, which they can draw upon as they move from childhood into their adult lives. AAM boasts exceptional facilities, and as an Apple Light House school we place a strong emphasis on integrating technology throughout the curriculum. 

We are part of the Taaleem group of schools. Taaleem is the second largest provider of education in the region and a group that has an absolute focus on education. A strong focus on professional development and world-class facilities allow AAM teachers to be imaginative and innovative when delivering the curriculum 

Who are we?

As a Taaleem teacher you will join one of the largest, most respected education providers in the United Arab Emirates. Taaleem (which means 'education' in Arabic) was established in 2004 and now has 9,000 students attending our 11 international schools and pre-schools in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Taaleem is also one of the Middle East's leading IB workshop providers for PYP, MYP, DP and IBCP. We began training in 2009 and have enrolled over 3500 participants to date.

We recruit the very best international teachers who can deliver our international curricula in a creative, collaborative, and highly engaging manner. Taaleem is committed to inspiring students and helping them to identify and develop their passions and talents.

We follow the State of Kansas curriculum, and use the US Common Core Standards for English Language Arts and Mathematics the Next Generation Science Standards and the C3 (College, Careers and Civic Living) Framework for Social Studies State Standards.

  • Bachelors of Education or recognised teaching license, for specialist subjects we require a degree in the subject area that you teach
  • Experience in the US Common Core Curriculum is desired

Aside from your qualifications, personality is very important, we look for inspirational teachers who leave a lasting impression on students for years to follow.
