Teaching Positions at Barwaaqo University

The Barwaaqo Commitment

Barwaaqo is more than just a job; becoming a successful member of the Barwaaqo community requires teachers to fully commit themselves to the improvement of the students and the school and completely immerse themselves in the Barwaaqo environment. For teachers, the school becomes the professional life, the social life, the physical outlet, and the source of personal growth. This level of dedication and immersion is not for everyone. As a new university in a developing county, Barwaaqo is a difficult environment and only those ready to dedicate themselves to the students and the school should proceed.
