Being a Teacher in Egypt

The schooling system in Egypt is divided into primary school, preparatory stage followed by secondary/high school. Children are required by law to finish schooling up to preparatory stage (Basic Education). If you wish to train as a teacher in Egypt you will first need to select the level of proficiency that you wish to teach at.

Being a teacher in Egypt offers numerous benefits to teachers, including:

A generous employment package

Teachers are usually offered a comprehensive and competitive salary, along with an additional benefits package. Salaries are paid on a monthly basis, into a local bank account. Most schools pay for Egyptian taxes, although this depends on the particular school that you are hired at.

Retirement planning

Many schools offer a generous retirement plan to their employees. In many instances this plan/package is the teacher’s choice.

Health insurance

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.

Dependent tuition

Those with dependent school aged children may receive tuition and fees paid for either entirely or at 50% of the price of tuition.

Annual Bonus

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.
