Additional Information / Benefits
Kuwait is often overlooked when considering teaching jobs because it is not as large or famous as other countries, but it has much to offer the international teacher. The salaries for teaching jobs in Kuwait are typically 10-20% higher than the UAE, and the cost of living is 10-20% lower. Most of Kuwait's international schools are located in Kuwait City, and this offers many opportunities to join clubs and meet other expats including American clubs, Gaelic Football clubs, Theatre clubs, and an abundance of sports clubs.  Due to visa regulations, Kuwait largely attracts single teachers and married teaching couples, so meeting people is never a problem. It’s smaller than the UAE both in terms of size and population, and teachers report back that they quickly find a good group of like-minded friends. Together, they enjoy weekends and long breaks travelling to nearby Dubai and Oman, and also more exotic places like the Maldives and Africa, all made possible by low cost flights and increased savings.

From a career standpoint, teaching abroad in Kuwait has a number of advantages. Since it’s less-known than the UAE, the competition for jobs in Kuwait is less fierce and teachers are more likely to get the attention of better quality schools. The schools are used to promoting from within, and therefor the chances of advancing your position (and your pay) are much higher. While some teachers use Kuwait as a stepping-stone, others stay and teach in Kuwait for several years or more, making advancements in their positions while saving great sums of money due to the low cost of living, tax-free salary, and benefits packages.

Finally, Kuwait makes a good first step for newly qualified teachers who want to gain a couple of solid years of British or US curriculum experience to launch their international careers, and most Kuwait schools welcome them.
