Hi All,

I'm looking for some information and advice.

I have an interview with Al Jazeera Academy in Doha as a primary teacher. I've heard mixed reviews about the school. Does anyone have first hand experience of the school? Or know someone that is there now?

What should I expect salary wise? I've got a degree and PGCE with QTS with one year supply experience. Plus a TEFL and 5 years ESL experience.

Also what is Doha like as a place to live? My husband will be coming with me as a non teaching spouse so what sort of clubs are there. He's into sports most sports actually but in particular football. Is there a Hash House Harriers Club in Doha? Any outdoor activities groups?

Sorry for the hundred questions. Any help or advice you can give is greatly appreciated. Smile

My girlfriend has friends who work/used to work there. Substandard accomodation and pay.

I think they are no longer an IB school as they did not meet the standards. A lot of staff turnover.
