Teach in the Middle East
- International Teaching Jobs Middle East — In the past several years, many developing nations, but especially Arab countries, have come to identify a good education system as a cornerstone of economic progress. The urgency for education reform in the Arab world has been manifested in the various initiatives aimed at improving the quality and quantity of education, especially with a rising young population that represents a majority in many countries of the Arab world.
- Recent years have witnessed many Arab countries making efforts to develop and implement comprehensive education reform programs that can result in a skilled, knowledge-based workforce in line with socioeconomic goals. This is opening the door to international teaching jobs in the Middle East.
- In the Arab world, there has been much debate about the quality of human capital. These debates question whether education improvement alone is equal to the task of improving the quality of life in Arab societies while enhancing the capacity of the population to meet the challenges of the future. Using Singapore and the Republic of Korea as models, many Arab countries are garnering the political wherewithal to focus on education reform.
- Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries are no exception. The GCC state members —Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE)—now face a much thornier challenge: raising the quality of that education. To make further progress, they must shift their focus—above all, to improving the skills of teachers and managing the overall performance of their school systems. Some GCC states (notably Qatar, and the UAE) are making a start. GCC public-education systems have evolved along similar paths, focusing for decades on increasing the number of teachers and making effective investments in "hard" infrastructure—schools and, more recently, computers—in hopes of improving their students' performance.
- The initiation of education reforms is driven by the desire to foster knowledge-based economies throughout the Middle East region, as well as, to prepare young nationals for productive citizenship and employment. However, as they pursue agendas to both preserve indigenous culture and embrace key aspects of globalization, educational leaders and policy makers face challenges and opportunities unlike those faced by other regions. Indeed, sizeable financial investment by governmental leaders, deregulation of private education, an increasing national youth population, and the presence of large expatriate communities has led to the development of educational systems unlike most others in the world. Moreover, recent massive educational reconfigurations have resulted in new pedagogies at the primary, secondary, and tertiary levels; new educational pathways for both nationals and expatriates; new partnerships with foreign educational institutions; and new challenges to the preservation of indigenous education.
