I am originally from Erbil. I'd like to work with SABIS but what i heard about them from reliable friends is that they don't pay well compared to others. Salaries in the international school of choueifat vary from $1800 to $3000. This figure may seem nice, but knowing that you will work from 8:00 to 4:00 for a load of 30 periods (each is 50 minutes) plus two afterschool periods (unpaid) that last till 5:00. Sometimes they get you on Saturday and Fridays and you are not paid.

Most of the teachers work for one year then leave SABIS.

They provide good accomodation if you are in their main school in Erbil. But if you are so unlucky and you go to suliemaniah or dihouk then you will suffer from their bad quality apartment. In Suliemaniah they should pay an additional of at least $1000 because of the bad situation there re riots and demonstations.

There are some shools that pay better in Erbil, if you search the internet you ll get a better idea.

The local Kurdish government is investing in education. The Choueifat schools and the American university of Sulimaniah are ones of governmentally funded projects.

The American university is expanding though they closed the branch of Erbil. There are some international school and universities that will start next year.

The international school of Choueifat is managed by the Lebanese management working with SABIS who are introducing a different learning style. They also run a university and some public schools.

Kurdistan Iraq is one of the places where you can live if you get a job of high salary- a min of $3000/month plus good accommodation with electricity 24 hrs.

As for sabis in erbil, there teachers are in general complaining and many argue that they will not stay or renew their work with sabis.

Some friends say that sabis in different places is different.

It is run by a Lebanese guy R*** who is only into money and increasing the profit rate. He is creative in cutting off expenses.

I don't recommend this school to any experienced teacher but only for fresh graduates. No gratuity and no bonus if you only work for one year only with their choueifat school in erbil.

it is a school owned by R*** who sets all rules and puts his friends in senior positions.

I don't recommend it to any. It's a corrupt.
