Hello all! New to this forum so please bear with me! My fiancé and I are both teachers (he is a PE teacher and I am a primary teacher) in Scotland. We are considering a move to Dubai after our wedding next year but were looking for some advice...
- what kind of salary should we be looking for inorder to live comfortably while hopefully be able to save some?
- we have read in job applications that schools pay for teacher accommodation, medical insurance etc. Considering we would be a married couple, would we be able to live together? Would a school pay for this?
- how does the working day/job requirements compare to Scotland?
- is it likely employers would look favourably on our eventual return to the uk (as in we have gained different experience) or unfavourably (as in we have missed how ever many years of the Scottish curriculum).
We have visited Dubai and loved our time there and also have friends who currently live there. If we could make this work for us we feel it would be an amazing life experience and the right time in our lives to do so. I apologise for the long post and thank you in advance for any comments/advice you can give!
