    Re: is the sentence correct

    "Ability to work on a team" is not a sentence. Try:
    He has the ability to work on a team

    or (perhaps better)

    He has the ability to work as part of a team

    Re: is the sentence correct

    It should be 'ability to work in a team.'

    But then again, it could be AmE to use 'on a team' like the case of 'wait on someone'

    not a teacher

    Re: is the sentence correct

    I think in AE we would say on. Example:
    I am on a team.
