Teachers who have made the move

After teaching in South Wales for four years, I knew that I needed a change and a challenge in my life. I started to look for jobs abroad and applied online to various schools. After an interview in London, I was offered an outstanding opportunity at The English College in Dubai.
Ben Davie
PE Coordinator at Gems Wellington Sillicon Oasis School
The first few months were challenging to secure the type of teaching job that I was seeking. I was forced to take a number of short term contracts and supply teaching positions. This had benefits, as it gave me an opportunity to see a number of different schools in action – to try before I buy! In September 2003 I took up a position as Head of Physical Education at a prominent British curriculum school.

Ever since I qualified as a teacher, my family and I had harboured aspirations to experience life abroad. After some advice from friends we decided to take a look at Dubai. It seemed to be a city that was full of opportunity, cultural diversity, great weather and of course financial benefits.
