The Oxford School Dubai careers and teaching jobs
  • School website doesn't have an employment section listing current vacancies. They seems to advertise in newspaper classified ads (Khaleej Times, Gulf News) which get picked up by random online job websites in Dubai, with school fax 04-2543777, or email addresses school_vacs@yahoo.com (not confirmed, unknown if still valid) or institutehead@yahoo.com (also unconfirmed but seems to be more recent) for applications. School name not always provided in advertisements, usually they say a "Reputed British Curriculum School in Dubai".
  • Try sending CV and application letter directly to school.
  • Pay scale and benefits package not provided but one advertisement in July 2010 for primary and high school teachers offered a salary range of INR 25,000-35,000 (AED 1,500-2,000) per month with shared accommodation included.
Oxford School official websites and domains
  • www.oxfordschool-dubai.com - official website (date of change from previous website not supplied).
  • www.oxford.sch.ae - forwards to official website.
  • www.oxfordschooldubai.com - was official website, is now spam, no longer available.
  • Oxford School Facebook pages (no official FB page found or supplied).
    • facebook.com/TheOxfordSchool.Dubai - unknown, not updated.
    • facebook.com/pages/The-Oxford-School/215764382478 - not an official page, not updated, incorrect information.
    • facebook.com/pages/The-Oxford-School-Dubai/180315488685413 - unknown, no content, FB spam.
    • facebook.com/pages/The-Oxford-School-Dubai/106447482725828 - unknown, no content, FB spam.
E-Learning Gateway (Egateway)
  • E-learning gateway login from Oxford School website login page. Or egateway website at www.elearngateway.com (not confirmed)? Both pages look unsafe and insecure to use. Oxford School page security is perhaps marginally better, although neither use https so they're still risky. Don't use egateway password or username for anything else, don't use username or password from anywhere else for e-gateway.
