  • The UAE Academy is a vocational institute offering courses and training to UAE Nationals in preparation for joining the workforce.
  • The motivation for setting up this institute was the Emiratisation policy of the UAE government.
  • In addition to the main campus in Abu Dhabi, the UAE Academy also operates in Al Ain, and the Western Regions (Madinat Zayed, or Sheikh Zayed City) for some programs (Tajdeed).

UAE Academy jobs and careers

If you're looking for employment at UAE Academy, their website asks you to send a covering letter and resume (CV) to excellence@uaeacademy.ae. Details of salary, packages and working conditions are not available on their website, nor are indications of what qualifications and experience are desired by the UAE Academy. You can either view the rudimentary application process and lack of information about working conditions as a guide to how the rest of the institute operates, or see it as a low priority task that their human resources department hasn't got around to completing yet.

Comments seen and heard about teaching at the UAE Academy are not promising though - possible delays in salary payments, difficulties supplying or finding accommodation, management style may be seen as juvenile (for example staff have to sign in and out at the start and end of their working days). In short, sounds like many other ESL and tertiary institutes in the UAE.

Last update 28 February 2015
General comments - might not apply to UAE Academy
  • Fees, facilities, education quality varies widely. Allow extra fees for visa, transport, accommodation.
  • Salaries, accommodation, other benefits for lecturer jobs vary substantially. Check contracts carefully for medical, housing, flight allowances, etc.
