Preparatory Year Programmes (PYP) in Saudi Arabia
Teach Away offers teaching jobs in Saudi Arabia at the university level. Through the Language Preparatory Year Programmes (PYP), English teachers will work alongside Saudi educators while earning a tax-free salary and a comprehensive benefits package.
The Language Preparatory Year Programmes (PYP)
The English Language Preparatory Year Programmes (PYP) aim to further advance the English proficiency of Saudi students moving into the university system, as well as existing academics looking to improve their level of English comprehension and spoken ability. This is accomplished through the strategic placement of certified international native English speaking teachers. Educators will join a multinational staff at a university where they will aid in the development of curriculum and student mentorship, and otherwise seek to improve the English language skills of Saudi students and scholars. Consequently this opportunity lends itself to university and college professors, allowing them to gain some valuable teaching in another country.
English Language Preparatory Year Programmes Details
Saudi students and scholars in a PYP programme will receive 20 hours of English Language teaching per week for a full academic year. ESL instructors will provide additional support and guidance to students outside of classroom teaching hours. Since income is tax free and most contracts will include benefits in the form of health insurance, roundtrip airfare, and 1 month of paid vacation (as well as national holidays), women teaching English in Saudi Arabia can expect to save a significant portion of their salaries.
