As a teacher, you play a crucial role in the overall development of our society: equipping and empowering our youth with the skills and knowledge they will use throughout their lives.
You serve on the front line every day, engaging with students and challenging them to maximize their potential.
The heart of the reform is developing students with strong problem-solving and analytical abilities. With your help, students will grow into independent thinkers with the ability to create, innovate, and support the economic and social progression of our Emirate.
How ADEC helps
To help teachers and educators on this journey, ADEC has created a Teacher Guidebook. This helps teachers understand the key beliefs, values, and guiding principles of our New School Model.
ADEC sponsors training programs to aid teachers in professional development
Key differences include the approach to teaching methods, staffing structure, curriculum, infrastructure, assessment, evaluation, and family involvement.
It is an educator’s role to embody the fundamental beliefs of the model: that all children are capable of learning, and that teachers are responsible for student learning.
One of the most important practices teachers can adopt to support education reform is to make constant development of their own skills a priority.
That is why ADEC also sponsors training programs to aid teachers in professional development.
