Secondary Teachers
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.

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.

As the group expands, we are keen to meet suitably qualified and experienced Secondary practitioners for whom teaching is a vocation. Candidates must possess a Bachelor’s degree (face-to-face study) in their subject specialism, and a recognized teaching qualification. Doha Academy predominantly recruits teachers from the UK and Ireland, although teachers with a teaching qualification from other parts of the world will also be considered.

We are currently recruiting for August 2023 and will be conducting interviews in-person in Cork, Ireland between March 5th – 10th. Online interviews can also be arranged for those unable to travel to Cork.

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:

· First language English speakers;
· 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.

To apply, please email an A4 letter of interest (one side) and a full CV, with any gaps in your career history explained, to /
