As an employer, we offer a warm, pleasant working environment with various professional development opportunities. As a successful applicant, you will become part of a highly professional, international and amicable team at American Academy For Girls (AAG).
If you would like to apply for any vacancies at either AAG or any other Taaleem school, please visit the Taaleem Careers Portal.
General information for candidates applying for teaching positions
For teaching positions at AAG or any other Taaleem school or school in the UAE, it is vital to ensure that you hold the correct qualifications and have the requisite experience. We would normally anticipate a minimum of two years' (and probably more) qualified teaching experience.
All candidates must have completed 12 years of Primary and Secondary education and hold a Bachelor's Degree in Education or equivalent, specializing in the relevant educational field. Holding a subject degree alone will not qualify you to teach in the UAE. Teachers with extensive experience who hold a Certificate or Diploma of Education may be recognised as qualified. Offers made would be subject to receiving the approval of the UAE Ministry of Education, who must be satisfied that their criteria in the relevant teaching qualifications are met in a formal process.
All successful candidates will be expected to complete the school's medical form, duly certified by a General Practitioner and be passed fit for working overseas. On occasion, the authorities will require you to supply a recent chest X-Ray. Finally, candidates will be expected to supply a police clearance certificate or similar proof of non-criminality.
Warning on Recruitment Fraud
Beware – recruitment scams on the increase!
Fraudsters pretending to represent American Academy For Girls (AAG) or Taaleem are sending e-mails, letters and texts offering employment to prospective employees. They also sometimes duplicate websites to make it look official. These offers often look legitimate and include job description, salary, and benefit details. These fraudsters then ask for payment to obtain visas or to process immigration documents.
We never ask for payment to process documents, we never refer you to a third party to process applications or visas, and we never ask you to pay costs.
Never send money or pass on personal details to anyone suggesting they can provide employment with American Academy or Taaleem, and never reply to an email address that does not end in @americanacademy.ae or @taaleem.ae.
