Teaching and Education Jobs in Dubai and the Influx of Big Business

Teaching and education jobs have taken a downturn in recent years due to the economic crisis felt by public and private organizations. Education in the private sector has become more prevalent as companies have put an emphasis on employee training. The teaching and education profession has historically been an overworked, underpaid profession which has lead to a problem with employee retention. In the United States much of the workforce including teachers are baby boomers on the verge of retirement. When this occurs there will be a large increase in demand for American teachers.

Teaching and training jobs in Dubai are in demand because Dubai is one of the fastest growing cities in the world. As of 2009, the total number of public schools in Dubai was 79. The total number of private institutions was 145. The main language used for instruction in the public school is Arabic with an emphasis on English as a second language. The private schools have more of an emphasis on teaching English as the main language. Officials in Dubai recently opened up Dubai Knowledge Village in an attempt to spur post-secondary education.

As more permanent residents move to Dubai the teaching and education job sector will continue to grow.

Dubai has also become a destination for big businesses to operate. The influx of big business has increased the need for corporate trainers to provide new employee training and continuing training for the existing workforce. Dubai’s teaching and education job sector outlook should remain steady in the interim with future growth as the global and local economies improve.
