Our Recruitment Process

You can have the best program in the world, but if the teacher who

delivers it is not qualified, you will not get the expected results…

Our commitment to our students, therefore, does not only involve providing them with a high-quality study program but also offering them a truly enriching learning experience.

That’s why we have implemented a rigorous process to select the best teachers for our school.


“The lessons are super beneficial, alhamdulillah!
Despite the language barrier, the teacher takes all the time to correct each sentence and each word. She is very kind, smiling, and never annoyed.. I was registered in another remote institute before Al Kunuz, where the teacher (also Egyptian) spoke to me poorly, SubhanAllah, the school did nothing despite screenshots of messages, so I changed to come to you. It’s the best decision I’ve made and I have no regrets, alhamdulillah! I am really blossoming in the courses and I have made a lot of progress in only 2 months!” – Hayette D.

A demanding process

It is not enough to be an Arabic speaker to be able to teach Arabic.

It is also not enough to have a degree to be able to teach Arabic or the Quran.

We have set the bar very high in our selection process.

And in order to guarantee the highest level of expertise and competence, all our potential teachers must go through a series of evaluation, training, and continuous development phases.

Phase 1: Interview

During the first phase, we conduct an in-depth interview with each candidate to assess their language skills, teaching experience, and passion for imparting knowledge.

This allows us to select teachers who are not only competent but also passionate, committed, and with the moral qualities we are looking for.

We place great importance on training our candidates according to our unique methodology, which allows us to guarantee an optimal learning experience for our students.

That’s why we often prefer to select candidates who have no prior experience in teaching institutions for non-Arabic speakers.

We have found that some candidates who have worked in other institutions may have acquired habits or methods that do not align with our educational approach, which can sometimes make it difficult for them to integrate into our environment.

By choosing candidates with no previous experience, we can train our teachers according to our standards and our methodology from the outset, allowing them to focus on developing optimal skills for our students.

Phase 2: Knowledge Test

After the initial interview, we subject our candidates to a comprehensive knowledge test to assess their mastery of Arabic or the Quran in all its dimensions.

Our evaluation criteria are high, which results in a large number of failures at this stage of the selection process.

We only select candidates who demonstrate a deep understanding of their field and who can communicate effectively to pass on their knowledge to our students.

Although our selection process may seem rigorous, it is necessary to maintain the highest standards of education and to provide our students with the best possible learning experience.

Phase 3: Practical Test

To guarantee the great pedagogy of our teachers, selected candidates are subjected to a practical test, where they are invited to prepare and lead a test class.

During this test, we confront them with sharp questions and specific situations in order to assess their ability to respond creatively and effectively.

We also observe the strategies they put in place to succeed and measure their ability to adapt to unexpected situations and maintain a favorable learning environment for students.

Furthermore, this practical test allows us to detect candidates who may have benefited from external help during the previous phase of the selection process.

We consider that this help does not reflect their true level of competence and does not meet our evaluation criteria.

These candidates will not be retained to move on to the 4th and final phase of the selection process.

Phase 4: Practical training with tester students

Candidates who pass the initial selection phases participate in practical training where they teach tester students to perfect their pedagogical skills and especially learn and put into practice our methodology.

Our internal trainers provide valuable feedback throughout this phase to help teachers perfect their approach.

Regular feedback from tester students also allows us to identify the strengths and areas for improvement of the candidates.

The duration of this practical training generally varies from three weeks to two months, depending on the specific needs of each candidate and our quality requirements.

If the candidate passes this phase, they will be hired. Otherwise, their journey stops here.

Phase 5: Continuous Training

At Al Kunuz, our certified teachers are committed to always learning.

We provide continuous training to all our employees so that they can constantly improve and adapt their teaching to the evolving needs of our students.

By choosing Al Kunuz, you can be sure that our teachers are selected with the utmost care and are completely dedicated to offering you the best possible education in Arabic and Quran, which is both comprehensive, kind, and inspiring.
