Anyone know why the salary with RAFO is less than MTC. I understand MTC pay 1900 OMR and RAFO starting salary at grade 5 is 1200OMR.

I do know the RAFO package is better in terms of annual leave and bonus. But the salary difference is rather huge.

Probably RAFO gives free housing whereas with MTC you have to pay for your own housing which will cost minimum 400 riyals a month.

Also, the housing, if your business, will be unfirnished and with no AC, so your cost again, high cost indeed.
Short summer break compared to regular uni standards, and the number of hours a week high or very high - depending which rumour I heard is true - compared again to average tertiary standards.
All in all, you do not earn more kat exochen, but you work more therefore you earn more, and besides you live in an expensive city Muscat is.

Not sure what this is supposed to mean... has autocorrect captured your phone?

You can edit it if you wish...

MTC salaries have been reduced. I think RAFO provides more tickets per year which can be encashed as well as tiny flats on the base.

Salaries levels depend on the military rank assigned to the teacher.

In case anyone is interested, I recently came across a current job advert for MTC, with a direct email address. The application deadline is 30th September. I’m not sure if I’m allowed to post the link here though.
