- a generous, tax-free salary
- free, furnished accommodation or equivalent accommodation allowance
- private health insurance for you and your family
- discounted education for your children
- annual return flights to and from the UK
- utility bills paid for
- an end of contract bonus (usually one month’s wage per year worked)
As a teacher in Kuwait, you can expect to earn in the region of 800 KWD (approx. £2000) and 1800KWD (approx. £4,500) a month, tax-free. You may also receive free accommodation or a tax-free accommodation allowance on top. Some schools even pay your utility bills. UK teachers can also make the most of working in Kuwait by renting out their homes whilst abroad.
Find Teaching Jobs in Kuwait
Most teaching jobs in Kuwait are in international schools. These are private schools which service the needs of expat children from specific countries. The most common international schools are American and British, though you will also find those from other countries, such as Australia, Canada, New Zealand and France. Each school delivers a curriculum based on that of its home country though, being in Kuwait, it must also teach Islamic studies and Arabic.
The most popular jobs for UK teachers are in International British Schools as they are very similar to private schools at home. If you work in an International British School, you will follow the National Curriculum and have EYFS, primary and secondary stages. Although many of the students will be UK expats, the high quality of British education means that these schools attract other nationalities, including Kuwaitis.
Besides the British schools, suitably qualified teachers can find employment in other international schools, especially those where English is the primary language. The curricula in these schools, although not identical to that of the UK, will be broadly similar.
There are vacancies for classroom teachers across all age ranges and all subject areas. In addition, there are occasionally middle and senior leadership posts available, including heads of departments, deputy heads and even headteachers.
An alternative to teaching in an international school is to work in one of Kuwait’s private language schools, teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL). As a regional business hub, the ability to speak English is much desired in Kuwait both from the Kuwaitis themselves, and from the large Indian, Egyptian, Filipino and Bangladeshi communities within the country. As a result, there is much demand for those who can teach English. Those who take up these positions must be prepared to teach children and adults and work evenings and weekends.
Qualifications Needed to Teach in Kuwait
International private schools have high expectations of their teachers and, as such, you will be required to have the same qualifications as those needed in the UK. These are:
- Relevant bachelor’s degree
- In addition, you will usually need 2 - 3 years’ successful teaching experience.
- If you are seeking a senior leadership role in Kuwait, you will need a recognised leadership qualification from the NTCL as well as relevant experience. Headteacher applicants may also require an M.Ed. or Ph.D.
- To teach TEFL, you should be a native or fluent English speaker, hold a bachelor’s degree and have a recognised TEFL qualification.
Living as a Teacher in Kuwait
Kuwait is a small country on the coast of the Persian Gulf with borders to Iraq and Saudi Arabia. Although its oil production and other business interests make it an exceptionally wealthy nation, it’s not as ostentatious as places like Qatar or the UAE. Indeed, it has a more authentic Arab feel than many of its neighbours, and with its desert plains, outstanding museums, traditional souqs and fabulous beaches, it’s an excellent destination for those wanting to get a taste of the Arabian way of life. You’ll also find that Kuwait City has all the amenities you’d expect from the capital of such a prosperous nation.
The country is very different to the UK. It has a true desert climate with very hot day temperatures, often exceeding 50°C, and very cold nights. Apart from Kuwait City and the developed areas along the coast, much of the country’s interior is arid, flat desert.
As a Muslim country, Kuwait’s laws and customs are different to those in Britain: alcohol, for example, is illegal. That said, Kuwait is considered to be the most liberal of the Gulf states and the laws affecting non-Muslims are secular rather than the religious (Sharia) law which is found in neighbouring Saudi Arabia. The British Government advises travellers to respect Kuwaiti traditions, customs, laws and religion at all times.
The UK and Kuwait enjoy good relations and there are around 6,000 British workers in the country. The number of UK visitors to Kuwait, 5,000 per year, is very small when compared to the 1.5 million who travel to the UAE. However, most visits are trouble free. Before accepting a teaching job in Kuwait, you should always read the latest travel advice from the UK Government’s website.
For those who choose to teach in Kuwait, there is much to experience: striking landscapes, a wealth of cultural and historical sites, and some very modern amenities. With beautiful beaches, a wide range of water sports, a zoo, aqua parks, great shopping, fabulous cuisine and a host of other exciting activities to take part in, you’ll have every opportunity to make the most of your time in this unique country.

Teaching jobs in Kuwait
Qualifications needed to teach in Kuwait International Schools
The Kuwait Ministry of Education currently requires that teachers have a bachelors degree in their teaching subject. This means that, as an example, Math teachers need a Bachelors in Mathematics plus a post graaduate certificate or degree for Education, or a Bachelors of Mathematics Education. Furthermore Primary (Elementary) teachers need a Bachelors of Education or a degree in an academic subject such as Engish or Mathematics that is taught at Primary level. Many schools require a teacher license, thought this is not a Ministry requirement currently.
Happily, Kuwait does not require a minimum amount of teaching experience so schools can hire Newly Qualified teachers.
September to June
Types of International Schools in Kuwait
Most Kuwait schools use the US Common Core or UK English National Curriculum. Some also use the IB (International Bacclaureate) as well particularly at the IB Diploma level. Many Kuwaiti students attend International Schools so all teachers will need to brush up on teaching English Language Learners.
What teachers like best about it?
Safety, low cost of living, easy lifestyle, lots of clubs and social groups to join with strong expatriate network, high savings potential. Kuwait is also a place where many newly graduated teachers start their careers so there are many young exptriate teachers about.
What teachers like least about it?
Alcohol not available, and it's quieter than Dubai
Kuwait has long had a vibrant international school sector, and with strong historical links to both the UK and USA, it is not surprising that the number of expatriates is high and the desire for Kuwaitis to give their children an international education is strong. The international schools are almost all in Kuwait City, which is a city of about 3 million people on the Arabian Gulf. It is the political, economic and cultural centre of the country. Unusually for the Middle East, contracts in Kuwait tend to be 1 year renewable, and Newly Qualified Teachers (NQTs) are welcome in many schools, making it a good, safe first step for teachers who wish to dip their toe into international life.
The expatriate community in Kuwait is very accessible and closer knit than in larger countries, so newcomers find they make friends easily both with teachers, as well as professionals working in industries such as oil and gas, banking, and construction.Life revolves more around eating out, socialising as members of clubs, and participating in planned activities. Kuwait is a ‘dry’ country, meaning alcoholic drinks are not sold, but embassies and military bases are exceptions.
There are a wide variety of clubs and societies to choose from including the British Ladies Society, the Canadian Women’s society, the Kuwait Scorpions Club (Rugby), the Desert Biking club, and the Kuwait Elisabethan Society (Drama). There are also clubs for camping, horse riding, bowling, bridge, baseball, archery, cricket, dance, darts, diving and cookery, to name but a few! Many teachers living in Kuwait travel to nearby Oman, Dubai, and Abu Dhabi on weekends and during school breaks. This is possible because salaries are on average 20% higher than in nearby Dubai and because of a lower cost of living.
The official language of Kuwait is Arabic, though English is widely spoken, and the national religion is Islam. Like the UAE, Kuwait is tolerant of other religions as long as they avoid proselytising. Kuwait has a desert climate, but everything from taxis, apartments, shopping malls through to schools are air-conditioned.

Changes to UK visa requirements: Key points at-a-glance
The government has unveiled a package of measures to reduce the number of people coming to the UK.
Home Secretary James Cleverly said the changes, which are due to take effect from next spring, would deliver the biggest ever cut in net migration.
- Tougher visa rules unveiled in plan to cut migration
It comes after net migration - the difference between the number of people coming to live in the UK and those leaving - reached a record 745,000 last year .
Minimum salary for UK skilled worker visa to increase
To be eligible for a skilled worker visa to come to the UK, your job offer must meet a minimum salary requirement.
At the moment this is whichever is highest out of £26,200 per year, £10.75 per hour or the "going rate" for your job.
From next spring, this will rise to £38,700 per year.
However, crucially health and care workers - who account for almost half of people on work visas - will be exempt from the increase.
People on national pay scales, such as teachers, will also be exempt.
The Migration Observatory says the main impact is likely to be on middle-skilled jobs like butchers or chefs, where pay tends to be less than £30,000.
Minimum income requirement for family visa to rise
The minimum income required for British citizens who want to bring a foreign family member or partner to live with them in the UK is rising from £18,600 to £38,700 a year.
An estimated 70,000 people came to the UK on family visas in the year ending June 2023 .
As the change affects those on lower incomes, it will have a bigger impact on groups who tend to earn less, such as women, younger people and those living outside London and south-east England.
Ban on care workers bringing family dependants to the UK
Overseas care workers will no longer be able to bring their partner or children with them to the UK.
Home Office data suggest health and care workers are more likely to be joined by family members than people on other work visas.
In the year to September, more than 101,000 visas were issued to care workers, with an estimated 120,000 visas granted to associated dependants.
Care companies are worried the ban on dependants will put off potential recruits from coming to the UK, making staff shortages worse.
But the government says it believes there will still be high demand from overseas workers for care roles in the UK, even if individuals cannot bring family members with them.
- What impact might migration changes have on the care sector?
Salary discount for shortage occupation list scrapped
Currently jobs on a shortage occupation list can be paid at 80% of the usual going rate to qualify for a skilled worker visa.
The list covers a wide range of sectors including health, education, care work and construction and is designed to make it easier for employers to fill vacancies where there is a shortage of workers in the UK.
The government says it wants to stop immigration undercutting British workers and is planning to scrap the 20% discount.
Healthcare surcharge to rise
The annual fee visa holders must pay to use the NHS - known as the immigration health surcharge - will rise from £624 to £1,035.
There are some exemptions , for example health and care workers do not have to pay the charge, and there is a reduced rate for students and under-18s.
Students: review of graduate visa
A graduate visa allows someone to stay in the country for at least two years after successfully completing a course in the UK.
The government has launched a review of this visa route to prevent what it's called "abuse" of the system.
More than 98,000 graduate visas were granted in the year to June.
The government has already announced plans to limit the number of students who can bring family members with them to the UK .
The changes, which come into force in January, remove the right of international students to bring dependents unless they are on postgraduate research courses.
Students will also no longer be allowed to switch onto work visas before their studies are completed.

Teacher shortage? Depends where you look
August 31, 2022.

The teacher shortage has struck most districts in California, but an EdSource survey shows that the impacts are nuanced, uneven — and sometimes inequitable.
Even within the same district, some schools — particularly those in wealthier neighborhoods — experienced less teacher turnover and were more likely to start the school year with a full staff.
Meanwhile, many districts that serve large numbers of high-needs students reported severe teacher shortages as the school year began, leaving students with substitutes or administrators to fill in until the district could hire more staff.
“The teacher shortage is not a mass exodus story. There’s variation,” said Desiree Carver-Thomas, researcher and policy analyst for the Learning Policy Institute, who’s studied the issue . “But there are very significant shortages in some districts, and that’s having a big impact on students.”
In Santa Ana Unified, for example, where almost 90% of students are low-income, the district reported 52 teacher vacancies last week, almost half in special education, a notoriously hard-to-staff division. That may seem insignificant for a district that has more than 2,300 teachers on the payroll, but those vacancies have left district leaders scrambling. If they can’t find enough substitutes, the district plans to reassign those students to other classes.
It’s not that Santa Ana isn’t trying. So far, they’ve hired 75 teachers for the 2022-23 school year, in addition to 318 teachers they hired last year.
“Santa Ana Unified continues to experience the same, if not greater, shortage of applicants for both certificated and classified positions,” district spokesperson Fermin Leal said, noting the tight competition among neighboring districts to recruit and hire teachers quickly. “We are proud of all the applicants who have chosen and who do choose to work with SAUSD.”
Long Beach Unified, where more than 66% of students are low-income, also reported a severe teacher shortage. Even after hiring 277 teachers over the summer, the district still has 45 vacancies. Oakland Unified, which has about 20,000 fewer students than Long Beach, has 34 vacancies after a hiring binge of 474 teachers.
The teacher shortage is not unique to California, and in fact, California isn’t even among the most impacted, according to research from Brown University’s Annenberg Institute. Mississippi, Alabama, West Virginia, Kansas and numerous other states all face dire shortages as the school year begins, according to the report. Teachers everywhere have been quitting, sometimes even in the middle of the school year, citing the stress of working through Covid, an uptick in student misbehavior after the return to in-person classes and a lack of respect from parents, among other complaints. A February survey by the National Education Association teachers union found that 55% were seriously considering leaving their jobs.
Combined with new funding to expand staff, many districts have been left with greater-than-expected hiring needs. And those subjects that were difficult to staff even before the pandemic — such as special education, bilingual education, math and science — are even more impacted now.
EdSource collected teacher hiring data from 16 districts representing a sampling of California: urban, rural, coastal, valley, large, small, affluent, and low-income. Every district but two (Riverside Unified and Trona Joint Unified near Death Valley) reported a shortage of some kind. Seven said they had nearly filled all their vacancies, while the remaining seven said they were experiencing steep shortfalls.
San Francisco Unified managed to fill all but eight of 500 vacancies by the start of the school year, in part by offering bonuses of up to $2,000 for teachers to work in special or bilingual education or in academically low-achieving schools.
Los Angeles Unified made headlines last week when it announced it had filled 99% of its teacher vacancies. Clovis Unified, near Fresno, said it had 22 vacancies when school started, but the district expects to fill those positions soon.
“We are not seeing any extreme teacher shortage like what’s happening in other parts of the state. We’re actually in pretty good shape for our hiring,” said district spokesperson Kelly Avants. “Even when you look at some of the STEM areas and advanced math and science in high school, we’re fully staffed in those areas right now.”
Some districts in California, such as Fresno , have been grappling with teacher shortages for years and had already embraced creative ways to attract and retain teachers. Bonuses, money for home down payments and student loan forgiveness were among the tools districts used to lure potential teachers.
Those districts had also established close relationships with local colleges to create a seamless transition from a credential program to employment. Fresno went a step further and opened “teacher academies” in high schools, so students can get a jump-start on their teaching careers while still students themselves.
Districts that have been proactive about hiring find themselves in better shape now, Carver-Thomas said.
She also credited the state’s efforts to bolster the teacher pipeline. The new Golden State Teacher Grant Program offers up to $20,000 for those pursuing teaching, counseling or school social work degrees. Salary increases, retention bonuses and teacher residencies also help.
“It did seem to make a difference,” she said.
Riverside Unified bucked the trend. The district has a high percentage of low-income students — 72% — but has not struggled to fill positions like many districts with similar demographics.
Kyley Ybarra, assistant superintendent of personnel, said her department has been trying to increase the teacher pipeline for years. The district has boosted salaries to compete with neighboring districts, raising the starting salary for a new teacher to $66,933. They’ve also lowered class sizes, added professional development courses and offered to pay for the second step of teachers’ credential process, which can cost up to $10,000.
But the biggest help has been the district’s relationship with its three local universities, Ybarra said. By providing student-teaching jobs for college students, the district has seen a big boost in prospective teachers applying for jobs after they graduate.
The district still has to hire hundreds of teachers a year, typically, but college partnerships relieve much of the stress, Ybarra said.
“They get to know us, they feel comfortable, and many decide they want to stay,” Ybarra said. “It’s a lot of work, but it’s made a world of difference.”

Student misbehavior is out of control. No help for teachers, we are told to deal with it but there are no consequences or punishment.

Interesting. I have applied at both Santa Ana USD and Long Beach USD the past four years. I am a fully credentialed math teacher, and do not get so much as an interview. I also have 39 years of teaching experience, retired from the Department of Defense Education Activity, with an MA plus over 100 additional semester hours.
Could it be that these districts do not want to pay experienced teachers who are are at the top of the salary schedule? Or, hire what they consider to be old teachers?
It certainly seems to warrant an investigation at the very least.

I wonder what types of certification did the teachers who were hired have? What percentage were emergency permit? What percentage were intern/preliminary/clear credentialed? This relevant data is missing from this article.

Nailed it! “student misbehavior” and “lack of respect from parents”. Those are the big 2.

Why five superintendents decided to walk away from their jobs
This year, California has had many school superintendents leave their jobs. Five former and current school district leaders talk about why their decisions.
Politics, stress and threats — leftovers from pandemic school closures — are making it easy for many veteran California superintendents to leave for other jobs, or to retire.
Threats, stress and politics pushing school superintendents out the door
