The Palestinian Territories includes the West Bank and Gaza Strip which are indirectly under the control of Israel, in the Middle East. Voluntary TEFL positions often appear for the territories – the volunteers usually effuse about what a wonderful experience they had working with the Palestinians. If you are looking for a TEFL position in the territories, then you might try sending one of its schools or NGOs a prospective CV and covering letter asking about career opportunities. You should consult your government’s foreign office for their advice on working in the West Bank or Gaza Strip before you go.

Adverts encouraging tourists to visit the area show images of amazing shopping centres, beautiful beaches lined with palm trees, four-wheel-drive vehicles hurtling up and down huge sand dunes, and usually someone with a falcon on his arm gazing over a spectacular desert sunset. But what’s it really like? Here we interview a British teacher, Dave, and ask him for his reflections on working in countries around the Gulf.
