One of the more recent developments in the Learning and Development Unit (LDU) has been the introduction of a graduate scheme.
This innovative scheme takes engineering and computer science graduates through an intensive course designed to equip those new to the teaching profession with the knowledge, skills and strategies to perform effectively in a classroom situation.
In accordance with the directive from HE Hussain Al Hammadi, UAE Minister for Education and in line with the UAE’s 2021 Vision to continue to develop a first-rate education system in which teachers provide first-class learning using the latest teaching methods, the Teacher Training Program (TTP) aims to qualify Emirati university graduates, as well as graduates from other countries, to teach in the school system. While university graduates are conversant in their subject, further training is needed in order to utilise their knowledge to become competent teachers and educators.
The accreditation of this programme aligns with the UAE National Occupational Skills Standards for Teaching. The course, open to graduates who have successfully passed a subject specific, literacy and numeracy test, is a combination of ‘in class’ learning and practical application in a school setting (school placement).
Graduates of the program have been successfully placed in middle and high schools in recent months and have very quickly become valuable assets within the school communities.
