Locations of School Placement

IMPORTANT:  One of the unique features of this program is that teachers are hired directly by  ADEC and therefore can be assigned to one of the 296 schools in one of three areas:
  1. Central Capital Region - Abu Dhabi City
  2. Eastern Region - Al Ain
  3. Western Region - Madinat Zayed, Ruwais, Ghayathi, Liwa, Sir Baniyas, Marfa, Sila and Dalma (island)
Teachers WILL NOT know the location or school they have been assigned to until they arrive for orientation.

If you have your heart set in a city and that is the only place you feel you wish to work for then this program is probably not the most suitable option for you. You may check all the other vacancies on our website for schools in the city that you wish to live and work in. Flexibility is required for this program.
