Pearson has worked closely with the UAE Ministry of Education to roll out the UAE School Leadership Programme, a course designed to teach teachers, including vice-principals and principals, the best international practice in teacher leadership.
The programme’s design and delivery was especially tailored to meet the needs of school leaders, and was jointly developed by Pearson and the United Kingdom’s authority on school leadership, the National College for School Leadership. The programme included a visit by some participants to the United Kingdom.
The UAE Government recognises that improved school leadership practices are essential to the ongoing improvement of the country’s educational indicators. The programme therefore formed a critical component of the Government’s Education Reform Agenda, aimed at improving the standard of teaching and learning in the Emirates’ schools.
