OnTESOL Review: TEFL Certification ReviewThe United Arab Emirates offers the most lucrative TESOL jobs in the world!

ADVETI runs secondary and post-secondary vocational training institutes throughout the country and they offer the most lucrative positions in the United Arab Emirates! ADVETI is perfect for experienced and highly qualified teachers.

ADEC, the largest employer in the UAE, hires certified public school teachers from North America and the United Kingdom for teaching science, math, and English. As budget cuts continue to close public schools in Canada and the United States, many qualified teachers find that the UAE is an excellent alternative.

Most successful applicants will have some combination of: a teaching licence; an MA degree in Education, TESOL, linguistics or a related field; and many years of teaching experience. Advanced TESOL certification is also preferred; for this reason, many teachers considering a job in the UAE opt for OnTESOL’s 250-hour TESOL Diploma.

Recruitment agencies based in Canada and the UK are actively assisting teachers with job placement services.
