General information for candidates applying for teaching positions
For teaching positions at RIS, it is vital to ensure that you hold the correct qualifications and have the requisite experience for registration at the Abu Dhabi Education Council (ADEC). 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 or Master Degree in Education or equivalent, specialising 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 Raha International School 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 Raha International School or Taaleem, and never reply to an email address that does not end in or

Please note that only is our official website. There are other sites that claim to be the Raha International School website - please do NOT reply or send emails or react to job vacancies posted on those.
