Secondary Teacher of Arabic

Doha College is a high-profile leading British International School in Qatar delivering a well-balanced, all-embracing English National Curriculum to a diverse group of students aged 3–18. The College was also the first High Performance Learning accredited school in the world. With 2,500 students and 350 staff, the school is a vibrant international community that subscribes to equal opportunities for all. An exciting time for the school, last year we moved to a brand-new, 90,000m² state-of-the-art campus, amalgamating two previous sites and ensuring the College’s place at the forefront of educational provision in world-class facilities.
