Why choose a CELTA or a TESOL in Dubai?

Teaching English in Dubai is a lucrative way for expats to migrate to the United Arab Emirates, and a TEFL certificate is a major entry requirement. Taking a TEFL in Dubai is an opportunity to live in a world-class city and get absorbed into the ESL market. There are no taxes on salaries and ESL teachers are paid very well. Typically, teaching English is one of the most respected occupations in the city.

Although the official language of Dubai is Arabic, English is also widely spoken, making ESL positions more demanding. However, a TEFL certificate recognised by the Dubai government like the CELTA or the international TESOL puts you at the forefront where employers can easily notice you among a pool of candidates.

Monthly salary for TEFL qualified teachers in Dubai is quite attractive between AED 8,500 to AED 25,000 with incentives, including airfare. A beginner teacher who has just earned a TEFL certificate in Dubai will be able to make enough to live comfortably and save. Furthermore, the large international community ensures that ESL teachers from foreign countries feel at home within the state.

Teaching requirements in Dubai

However, the ESL market is quite competitive, and the highest consideration is given to teachers with more qualifications. This is where your TEFL certification comes in. A TEFL certificate will undoubtedly enhance your chances of getting a teaching position within the city. Some institutions may also require a master's degree and at least one year of teaching experience.

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I choose CELTA or a TESOL course?

Cambridge University offers CELTA while our centre in Dubai is providing TESOL. Both courses are recognised within the ESL industry. However, CELTA is considered to be more intensive and thus, depending upon your requirement (for a job), your investment budget and time constraint, you can choose one of these courses.
