Many schools offer a generous retirement plan to their employees. In many instances this plan/package is the teacher’s choice.
As a teacher in an Egyptian school you may be eligible to a health insurance package. Many health insurance schemes include both the teacher and their dependents.
Transportation to and from school
Depending on the school that you work for and their policies in place, a staff bus transportation service may be in place, for teachers living in certain regions of Egypt.
Those with dependent school aged children may receive tuition and fees paid for either entirely or at 50% of the price of tuition.
Upon successful completion of an entire academic year of work, many teachers are eligible for a bonus. Some schools offer bonuses for 100% teacher attendance, whilst others offer bonuses based on student success.
