Teacher salary in British Curriculum Schools

I am in qatar on spouse visa. I applied in few british curriculum schools for teaching job. I heard that british schools are paying good. Now I got offer from one school mentioning 4500 QAR salary inclusive of everything, without negiotiating with me. Contract term mentioned is 2 years during which I cannot even resign and I myself to arrange for work permit.

Kindly advice, shall i go with this salary (which i feel is on lower side) and sign the contract conditons?

People who are hired locally are always paid much less despite it being cheaper for them to employ you.The school doesn't need to pay housing or other benefits as that is covered by your spouse's contract. The salary you have been offered is ridiculously low- as Vegas said 'you might as well work for free' You can negogiate- it's hard to get and keep qualified teachers here so that is in your favour.

shammawakil

can u plz name the school? who r the stupid authority of the school?

A friend of mines wife recenty got a Kindergardin position in a British school and is getting approximatley 3000 per week

is not worth it to be on the safe side let go of the offer.

Alumnar

Sorry but your English is not fluent. I am sure you are no native English. You have been offered an Assistant Teachers' Position for that money and local hire should be 1 year renewable only. Would you like to give us more truthfull detauls so we can advise further, or shall we rather leave this subject alone?

As you have written about yours wifes friend that she is getting 3000 QR ...Its an awesome salary..very gud..   I think so the school authorities try to fool the teachers who are new in DOHA. I am M.A.ENGLISH with B.ED.Having 6 years of experience.

Can you plz tell me about the salaries (APPROX) of teachers in DOHA..and plz let me know about some good schools where i can apply...

                 THANKS N REGARDS

 

Minoush

First you are not a native speaker so your salary stems from that.  Second, please tell me what school gave you an advanced degree in English?   They should be punished.  My 3rd grader has better grammar and punctuation than you do.


This is the reason why I am so overwhelmed with students who need tutoring- they have teachers who do not even know when to use "good" and "well" properly in a sentence.


 Go back to school and learn proper English then (and only then!) come back to teach our children. 

Alumnar

Well said Minoush - and quoting the OP 'who applied in British Curriculum Schools because they pay GOOD': God save our kids from this kind of teachers!

Minoush

If you want to know what a private British or American school pays, here it is:  Between 140,000-180,000qr a year (that is a local hire, no benefits such as housing or travel)

Assuming you have a Western teaching degree, a teaching certificate and at least 3 years experience.  Native speakers need only to apply for this salary...

 

anonymous

first of all i want to thank you whole heartedly about your response . you have opened mine eyes as i was not at all aware about mine weakness in grammar  and punctuation.secondl, if you want to punish punish yourself first who don't have any manners how to deal with the person who is asking about the advice and opp to that you are checking that persons grammar...by the way let me know if you are a great scholar or philosopher where i was wrong in mine english...i think so thst you are a totally free person who had no other job to do rather then finding mistakes in others, always be free and sitting on net and passing yours monotonous day and enjoying through finding grammatical mistakes...such people are a black spot on the society...........BEWARE OF SUCH TYPE OF RIDICULOUS PEOPLE.................GOD SAVE....................AMEN...............

jayca

@Harby - no offense meant.... how can you teach proper grammar and punctuation if you dont know how to use it? you cannot blame these parents as they are paying big money so their children could learn.

 

I am not that good in english as well, as this is not my first language., but you may want to try your luck in other schools (?) or other subject perhaps?

anonymous

i care about the friends and i dont care about the enemies.......no explanations...

Alumnar

You should care about the truth, which is 'Your English is horrendous'!!! If my child had a teacher who wrote English like you do, I would certainly change her immediately to another school. I am sorry to say that if it is true that Doha Academy has offered you a job, something is seriously wrong with that school. Would you like me to spellcheck your post from 9,33pm? I'd be happy to do that just to show you what I mean. No offense meant, but if you post on a public forum, you need to be able to accept criticism. We are not ridiculous - just realistic.

Alumnar

Oh and btw - English is my 3rd language!

anonymous

By the way what is teh word HORRENDOUS..there is no dictionary in the entire world in which we can find this word...can u explain me.and secondly..there is one suggestion for you that if you dont know what the matter is ...the salary problem ...or grammar prob.. no need to to poke your nose into the matter....untill and unless you are aware of it...

jayca

Horrendous means extremely unpleasant, horrifying or terrible :) - you can find it in google or any dictionary.

 

As what minoush said, your not an english native speaker so your salary stems for that... you already get the answers you needed :)

Alumnar

Thank you jayca :-) You are absolutely right. Looks like the OP has problems with English AND computers - just horrific (another made-up word?) ;-)

Minoush

Oxford Dictionary- Horrendous: adjective
extremely unpleasant, horrifying, or terrible:
"she suffered horrendous injuries"

Harby, what university did you attend to obtain your MA in English?

When my children are at stake it is MY BUSINESS to make sure that the teachers who are educating them are experts and are the best in their field. I expect nothing less.

You say you have a MA in English, yet you cannot spell, conguate simple verbs, and do not use words appropriately in a sentence.
How do you expect parents to react??

Again go back to school, take a refresher course in English and then start applying. Maybe the 4500qr is what the school thinks your worth because of your poor English skills.

tinkerbell10

I HAVE to agree with Minoush and Alumnar here. For a person who claims to be an MA in English - your language skills leave a LOT to be desired. English is not a language where ONLY grammar is taught, usage, phonetics, pronounciation, etc etc ALL make a difference especially since you are a TEACHER. If you were to just converse as everyone else then this would NOT be an issue.

But as a TEACHER - i have to say this - please DONT apply as a TEACHER. And from your post it looks to me you are more interested in which school pays more salary than the job itself.

anonymous

It means that every now and then you just go to your kids school and testing the teachers, their skills ..if you don't find the teacher appropriate for your kid ..then you change the school of your child...its better minoush that you should  go for home classes for your kids...no need to send them to schools...today are you totally satisfied with your kids school....can you give 100% guarantee that your kids after studying in these schools will be scholars...it is only the responsibility of the school to bring the best out in kids.......whats the responsibility of the parents...??????????what they have to do...??

secondly, i am not here to pass any exam that you are the one who is checking mine paper and telling me where i have to use verb, noun.adverb etc in a sentence...you are not here to judge me...it will be better if you judge yourself and rate yourself that where you stand..........

you telll me which is the best grammar school so that i can also know that you yourself with your family are going to study there..........better to judge yourself rather then commenting on others..........better to find yours own track...okkkk

 

anonymous

it will be better for you if you carry on with your own bussiness..............really sorry for you guys............i want to tell you guys that i have got a job in an  school and that also in doha................yeeeeeepppppieeeeeeeeeeee...........i am very happy...... now save your kids from such  teachers if you can do so..... i was just passing mine time on net by asking such questions.....i got the job when i was in newzealand itself.....i was just  passing mine time with such GREAT PEOPLE.....YYEEEPPPPPPPIIIIIIIIEEEEEEE..................................

Milky_BarKid

Best to apply to an Indian School, which will suit your English competences and your experience from India/UAE.

jayca

@ Harby - That's great news! Now.., goodluck to the students and parents :P :)

anonymous

thanks a lot..... a lot....a lot...................gud luck to parents and to students fron mine side also.........................

Minoush

Well, most likely you took the 4500qr job, which means you are either a teacher's assistant or working in an Indian school. 

God help those children you are teaching.  No worries though, as the parents will soon be banging down my door looking for a tutor and the parents willingly pay me 250qr an hour to fix everything you taught them incorrectly.  (I, too have a MA degree is English by the way.)

Just more money for me!  Yippee!!!!

Minoush:

... CONJUGATE, not conguate.
... what the school thinks YOU'RE worth, not your.
... TEACHERS' assistant, not teacher's assistant.

For 250 QAR an hour you need to be perfect, not just good ;-)

Minoush

Touche Alumnar!!!  You got me.  Notice how our friend Harby didn't catch it though!

 

 

 

Alumnar

She has given up Minoush - because she knows her English is HORRENDOUS for a school teacher ;)

Hmmmmm... Nobody's perfect., so why practice? Hahahaha, kidding aside, it only shows you being celf centered and selfish, not a good practice for a teacher eh, i really do hope your future students and your school best of luck :(

and also, are you hearing yourself talking? The way you speak, im wondering how the heck did they hire you., better not to disclose which school it is. .

anonymous

@ jayca...i think that u didn't got me...i told u that why should i waste my precious time on the people like you... i think so that will be more than enough for you.....

 

Raven1968

@ Harby, I'm a NZ citizen born and bred there and I'm astonished that you passed the english vocab test to become a NZ citizen...I didn't know that immigration were lowering their standards so much...thank god you are out of NZ and not teaching the poor kids there...

tinkerbell10

If you think you shouldnt be wasting time here then why do you keep coming back to reply to everyone?

And what are you, 12???? Are you that naive to think that everyone here is using their real names and you are the only Intelligent one here using a fake ID??? Grow Up!!!

Just re-read whatever you have written and IF you REALLY are an MA in ENGLISH and are a teacher you will be able to see the grammatical mistakes in every single line thats glaring back at you.

And please, remove that nationality from your profile. You are giving the rest of us Indians a bad name...!!!

anonymous

@raven..who told you that i have passed the test to become a newzealand citizen....oh man give me a break...one thing more i am the citizen of newzealand and will go in this dec and will settle down there only...then what you will do to save your poor kids.....and one thing more if yours standarad is so high then why you are here...and working ...why???why  you are not in your own country and serving ur own country,,,poor dude......... uare here to earn more n more n more money..crazy fellow....its shameful on yours part that you are saying that you r the citizen of n.z as you are serving here....poor country.......

anonymous

Raven1968

@ Roshy, or Hardy or whatever your TROLL name is now, I'm here to further my career and earn some tax free $$$$, just as most ex-pats are over here for. You harp on about having an MA in English which you have clearly demonstrated in your posts above that you have a poor grasp of. NZ have a basic english vocab tests for all immigrants to sit and pass.  Why is it shameful that I am here furthering my career, the workforce is a global market place now days, deal with it!!!  If you were teaching kids in NZ god help us all!

tinkerbell10

And yeah whether i wish to serve my country or here is NOYB....and in case Ms. MA ENGLISH you didnt get that google it!!!!

tinkerbell10

Ok !! Harby goes OOPPSSS and the other TROLL remains. Lets see how far the MODS will put up with this whacko!!!

Well, we all log in here for a few laughs by such TROLLS and they never fail to deliver do they!

Raven1968

so do tell, why have you set up a new ID? if you are a NZ citizen then its going to snow in Doha today....stop TROLLING and get a life....the NZ kids are saved as you are not teaching there, not that you'd get a front line teaching job there anyway, the NZ Education Board have standards...

Hello

I registered myself on this website to reply to this thread alone.

It makes me sad to see that a person (calling herself a teacher) is so excited to ruin lives of children. For what? For 7000 QAR.

I myself am a teacher, without an MA in English. However, I compensate for it with my passion for teaching. 

For a teacher, money is something that should come last. 

Teaching is a big responsibility. I recommend you teach other subjects harby. Maybe Hindi?

You might not get 7000 QAR per month for that, but atleast you'll save a hundred lives.

@hira..@tinkerbell,@raven.raven u should not worry about mine job.......okl...it means n.zealand have standards and that is why...they have kicked you out of their contry as they donot want to keep the people below the standard.poor guy you are..@hira.if you are not bothered about money.then i will suggesgt you that you should do a charity job,,,,,,,,free of cost..dont take a single riyal where ever you are working....then save hundred lives................yepieeeeeee.....................yepieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Raven1968

@ Roshy, Hardy or whatever your new TROLL name is, there is no way you'd get a frontline teaching position in NZ with your grasp of the english language, stop deluding yourself. I doubt you are even a NZ citizen like you claim.  If you say you are going back their in DEC then what are you doing looking for a teaching job here?

Raven1968

@ Roshy, yes thats right TROLL they kicked me out.....stop giving NZ a bad name by claiming you are a citizen....by every post you make you are proving your IQ is smaller than my shoe size!

tinkerbell10

Raven - water / ducks back / et al...:-)

My comment above kinda sums it up. :-)) Shortlived TROLL anyways....:-)

Raven1968

@ Roshy of course NZ will welcome you, but I doubt you are a citizen and you certainly won't get a frontline teaching position...and BTW why did you change your ID? Do you come on here to live out your fanatsy? Can't be a teacher and a NZ citizen in real life so come online to live it out? So tell us all if you accepted a position with a 2 year term why are you going to NZ in Dec?

tinkerbell10

I'm sorry, I can't be mean to you Roshy. It's be kind to Morons week.

hirakhatri

Seriously Harby/Roshy.

No comments.

It's plain sad.

I hope you wake up someday.

Alumnar

The only place this troll will end up is in a psychiatric hospital being treated for delusion! Please stop feeding this troll everybody, he/she needs to be left alone. How sad to see such English from a so-called educated person. Not only the English, but the attitude. Immature, offensive, ignorant and arrogant. Time to let this topic die.

Minoush

Nope, I have a waitlist of students. My Masters is in TESOL (Teaching English as a Second Language) from an American university and teaching experience and certification from the U.S.

Americans/Canadians make approx. 50qr more than Brits, and 100qr more than non-native speakers. (Supply and Demand).

When I finish my graduate specialization in Autism and Neurological Disorders I will be charging 300-400qr an hour. There are no more than a handful of American trained educators in Qatar that are qualified to teach Autistic children- especially those whose first language is not English.

anonymous

Why is that every other bl*^dy weirdo on this planet ends up in this town?...just out of curiosity,is there a sign somewhere out there that says retards & morons welcome to Doha?...seriously,fling a rock in any direction & you hit one here,unbelievable levels of unawareness & plain stupidity...i know the money's tax-free but man what a price to pay!...TEACHING English no less!...WOW!...hardy,rosh whatever it is you call yourself,YOU would have to pay ME...VERY WELL before i let you anywhere NEAR my kids (or any others for that matter) to teach them ANYTHING...

Alumnar

Gadarene, are you in panic mode yet, thinking the OP might have actually started teaching yesterday? May God have mercy on those children!!!

anonymous

I guess the one consolation is that the OP's language skills are SO poor,he/she'd stick out like a sore thumb ANYWHERE...shouldn't be too hard to spot...whoever spots this one first,please be kind enough to share which school it's at...mind you,i think this one's a hoax,even the Indian schools here don't have SUCH a low standard...or at least i would like to think not!...B.ed with an M.A in English eh? i'd like the name of that non-existent university!...must be some dodgy hole in the wall in small-town South Asia where a "degree may be had for a fee"...so to speak!...New Zealand citizen no less,must've been teaching the sheep English...even that is doubtful though...

nomerci

maybe one of those institutions  with "guaranteed" passing. ;) As was advertised on QL lately.

 

seasons

Omg!! Harby your english is really bad.. You say you applied in schools with British curriculum wonder which school even offered you that salary..  Passing mine time wow nice.. I hope MINE Children will not got to the school you are teaching.. I hope you understand mine point

flexicode

Oh harby!!!! for Gods' sake, give up this idea of teaching, Please. I will help you find a better job, may be a store keeper, a time keeper or something and a better pay than this. No offense and I mean it. Get in touch through PM. But please spare the innocent children and their parents. These parents have some dreams for their little ones.
