Morocco TEFL Jobs and Loads of Good Advice

A Guide to Teaching English in Morocco

All of which means that there is a steady demand for people to teach English in Morocco.

TEFL Cities in Morocco

These three cities are our top choices for TEFL jobs in Morocco. They all offer something a little different, but they have a couple of things in common too: a high demand for TEFL teachers and loads of TEFL jobs.

TEFL Jobs in Rabat

Rabat has a very European feel about it, and its clean, tree-lined boulevards sit in stark contrast to the ever-so-slightly crazed streets and squares of Casablanca or Marrakech. It is home to a fair amount of international trade and is the centre of the education system, both of which generate a steady stream of TEFL jobs in Rabat.

TEFL Jobs in Casablanca

While Rabat is where all the MPs and foreign dignitaries are to be found, Casablanca is where the money is made and where the cultural soul of the country resides. It’s also one of the best places to find work teaching English in Morocco.

TEFL Jobs in Marrakech

There’s something other-worldly and medieval about the packed squares and bustling souqs of Marrakech, which is why so many foreign tourists flood into the city every year. All those tourists need people who can speak English, so the demand for English teachers is pretty sizeable and there are usually loads of TEFL jobs in Marrakech.
