Doha Academy is a growing group of schools situated in the heart of Qatar’s cosmopolitan capital city. Founded in 2000, Doha Academy currently consists of three schools and offers a KG-13, British-based and Qatar national curriculum. The Academy’s Mission is to develop outward-looking, lifelong learners via a broad educational provision founded on local cultural values and traditions.
Doha Academy is an ambitious organisation, governed by Al Faleh Educational Holding that includes AFG College with the University of Aberdeen. Working at Doha Academy provides excellent career progression opportunities to staff who are themselves ambitious, forward-thinking, and student-centred in their decision-making.
As the group expands, we are keen to meet suitably qualified and experienced practitioners for whom teaching is a vocation. In addition to a Bachelors degree in the subject you teach, you should also possess a recognized initial teacher training qualification. We strongly encourage early applications.
This is an exciting time to join the Academy. Granted full Qatar National Schools’ Accreditation (QNSA) earlier in 2022, Doha Academy was also awarded full international accreditation with the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) in November 2022 and has embarked on its highest “ACE Learning” pathway.
The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
Our renumeration package includes:
- A tax-free, competitive salary;
- Annual return flight to your home country (or equivalent travel allowance);
- Free bus transportation to and from school;
- Fully furnished two-bedroom apartment with shared lounge and kitchen and on-site security;
- Medical cover.
- End of service gratuity.
Married teaching couples are very welcome to apply. We do recruit NQTs (ECTs), although we do not currently provide the ECT support program.
Ideal candidates will be:
- Passionate about their subject and how it is best taught;
- Determined to support the needs of all students;
- Adaptable to life abroad, and resilient;
- Positive team players;
- Culturally respectful and sensitive;
- Committed to their own professional development.
