Are you interested in offering private tuition classes in the UAE but unsure about the legal process? Here's everything you need to know about the new 'Private Teacher Work Permit' introduced by the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MoHRE) and the Ministry of Education.

According to Dr Muhammad bin Ibrahim Al Mualla, Undersecretary for Academic Affairs of the Ministry of Education, the new system provides "flexible options for students and parents while maintaining discipline, quality and efficiency in the educational process".

"The introduction of a permit for individuals qualified to provide private lessons will help curb illegal and unregulated practices when recruiting private teachers, which risk affecting the learning process as a whole," he added.

The legal framework regulates private lessons at the national level, protects the rights of private teachers and "ensures that students receive supplemental education that meets their learning style and needs."

Khalil Al Khoori, Undersecretary for Human Resources Affairs at MoHRE, urged those seeking private lessons to engage professionals authorised to offer these services and to fulfil their financial obligations as agreed between the two parties.
