Living in the UAE
With year-round sunshine, a tax-free salary and endless career development opportunities, Abu Dhabi is one of the major players in the international teaching market. Whether you enjoy spending your weekends dune bashing and cycling the desert tracks, or indulging in some retail therapy before a dip in the sea – Abu Dhabi has it all. It’s a great place to develop yourself professionally, while enjoying an enriching life outside of the workplace. At Taaleem we are proud and privileged to operate some of the leading schools in the UAE, led by outstanding teachers from all over the world. Our schools are located across Dubai and Abu Dhabi, catering to the British, IB and American curricula, so we always look for a diverse and inspiring teaching body who are looking to help educate and develop the future generations.
Raha International School
Who are we?
As a Taaleem teacher you will join one of the largest, most respected education providers in the United Arab Emirates. Taaleem (which means ‘education’ in Arabic’) was established in 2004 and now has 9,000 students attending our 11 international schools and pre-schools in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Taaleem is also one of the Middle East’s leading IB workshop providers for PYP, MYP, DP and IBCP. We began training in 2009 and have enrolled over 3500 participants to date.
We recruit the very best international teachers who can deliver our international curricula in a creative, collaborative, and highly engaging manner. Taaleem is committed to inspiring students and helping them to identify and develop their passions and talents.
Raha International School
At Raha International School (RIS), a member of the Taaleem family of schools, we believe that a successful education is all about inspiration: inspired teaching to drive academic achievement, and responsible adult role modelling to encourage emotional intelligence. Recently rated as “Outstanding” by ADEK and being the only K-12 IB school in the UAE to be awarded with this accolade, we are proud to offer the highest level in schooling from our 14-acre site in the heart of Raha Gardens.
As a result of our large waiting lists and impressive reputation the school is embarking on a fantastic new project to open a second campus with capacity for a further 3,000 students. The Early Years and lower primary will open in 2020 with a state of the art building and this will be followed in 2021 with the rest of the campus.
RIS is an International Baccalaureate World School catering for all grades from EY 1 to Grade 12, offering this internationally acclaimed curriculum respected for its relevance to today’s multicultural and increasingly global society. Our school is a contemporary and dynamic organisation, educating students from over 80 nations who collectively speak 45 mother tongues. We have recently opened a pioneering Performing Arts center, which adds to the exceptional facilities that our students and teachers can take advantage of.

Due to ADEK regulations, we require our teachers to have one of the following:
- Primary Teachers / Early Years Teachers – must have a Bachelors of Education
- Secondary Teachers – Bachelors of Education or recognized Teaching qualification / certification plus degree in the subject area you wish to teach.
