At Teach For Qatar, we are working to provide alternative solutions to the challenges facing Qatar’s students, by providing individuals who have no prior teaching experience a unique opportunity to give back to society.

By attracting talent from outside the education sector to the teaching profession, Teach For Qatar seeks to introduce fresh perspectives into Qatar’s independent schools, to not only increase the number of teachers in Qatar, but also embed practical industry experience within the classroom.

*We do not currently accept applications from current or past teachers, or individuals who hold an undergraduate degree in education.  This is because our aim is to expand the talent pool within the education sector for the overall benefit of Qatar’s future leaders.
