How to Begin Teaching in Algeria

The largest country in Africa, Algeria is a country of UNESCO heritage sites, beautiful colonial architecture, ancient Roman ruins, gorgeous beaches and the Sahara desert.

The largest country in Africa, Algeria is a country of UNESCO heritage sites, beautiful colonial architecture, ancient Roman ruins, gorgeous beaches and the Sahara desert. The sheer size of the country means that there are various different geographical regions in the country, from the coast to the mountains to the desert.

With such a diverse landscape, there are a range of activities that can be done to suit every traveller’s tastes: spend time in the capital city of Algiers, a quaint town with a touch of French colonialism; visit the city of Ouargla in the south of the desert, an ochre-coloured town known as ‘the golden key to the desert’; hike around the vast volcanic plateau of TassiliN’Ajjer; soak up the sun on the Turquoise Coast; tour the Sahara by camel; or visit the historic and holy town of Beni-Isguen. Whatever you fancy, rest assured you will find something to do in Algeria.

Arabic is the official language of Algeria and though French is considered a lingua franca and is spoken by a large percentage of the population and is even a medium of instruction in the later years of high school, it is not an official language.

The diversity of climate that are to be found in Algeria it is often refer to as the land of cherries and dates. It is not widely known that Algeria is the 10th largest largest producer of oil and 4th largest producer of natural gas. These exports often find there way to Western Europe.

Some common occupations of the Algerian people are agriculture, cement, clothing and mining. The people of Algeria are known for how courteous they are and welcome visitors with milk and dates.

 

Teaching Opportunities

There are teaching opportunities in Algeria but salaries are quite low and resources minimal. There are positions in state schools, language centres, universities and international schools, with state schools offering the lowest salaries and international schools the highest. There are also a growing number of centres which offer in-company language training to the employees of various foreign companies. You need a degree for any paid positions and the higher your level of education, the better the salary you can expect.

A work visa must be organised before arrival in the country and you will need your employer to help you apply for employment authorization issued by the Algerian Ministry of Labour.
