The Role

Secondary Science Teacher- January 2022 start 

We are seeking an outstanding and experienced Physics Teacher to join the Secondary School in January 2022. 

Candidates need to be enthusiastic about teaching their subject to students in an inclusive school setting. Experience of teaching post-16 courses, particularly the IB DP, is highly desirable. Experience of teaching in an IB school is also desirable but not essential. We are looking for someone who is passionate about international education, creative in their thinking and a student of learning. The successful candidate will also be adaptable, motivated by challenge and an excellent classroom practitioner. Please see the job description for further details.


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. 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 over 9,000 students attending our ten 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 CP. Taaleem is committed to inspiring students and helping them to identify and develop their passions and talents.

What do we look for?

All of our teachers must have either a Bachelor’s Degree in Education or a PGCE or an equivalent qualification from around the world. Secondary school teachers will also need a degree in Science or preferably Physics. Experience of teaching the IB programmes would be an advantage, as would experience of working in Dubai. However, a demonstrable alignment with the ethos of the IB and a genuine commitment to international-mindedness would compensate in many ways. Experience of using effective differentiation and assessment techniques are, however, essential. This post requires the candidate to be in Dubai now to be able to start quickly or available to relocate at short notice to Dubai. 

What we offer

We are committed to developing our staff and run regular professional development workshops to ensure that our teachers are equipped to provide students with the best possible educational experience. Taaleem provides high-quality, purpose-built accommodation for teaching staff equipped with a gym, a pool and all amenities. We offer an attractive tax-free salary, medical insurance, free child places within selected schools and an annual flight allowance.
