UAE adopts new Emirati School Model

Abu Dhabi: A new educational system, the Emirati School Model, announced on Sunday will unify the sector across the UAE and raise standards of teaching and learning.

In a statement issued by the UAE Ministry of Education and the Abu Dhabi Education Council (Adec), Abu Dhabi emirate’s education sector regulator, the two authorities said all public and private schools offering the Ministry of Education curriculum will now follow the Emirati School Model.

The move follows the directives of President His Highness Shaikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces.

Achieving this goal is being closely monitored by Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid, who considers it “essential to establish and support a well-informed education system capable of keeping up with future changes and developments.”

“The UAE has made many significant achievements in education and the next stage requires us to build on them under a unified framework in preparation for the comprehensive development needed to delivering on national higher objectives, guided by the vision of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan,” he said.
