Successful Launch of the ‘Enabling the Exceptional’ Cluster Pilot Programme


This month, TELLAL launched the ‘Enabling the Exceptional’ cluster pilot programme with 150 participants attending. By introducing a dynamic ‘communities of practice’ approach to support the 24 schools participating in the project, TELLAL has provided staff and leadership training on higher order evaluative thinking, establishing data teams, data driven strategies, SEF evaluations, strategic planning and visible learning.

We look forward to introducing the programme to other GEMS schools and clusters after the pilot is completed.

Principal License Workshop: Leadership Improvement Projects

As part of the KHDA Leadership Permit Process for Competent Principal Status, all principals are required to demonstrate competence in the 4 areas of the UAE Principal Standards:

Professional and Ethical leadership, strategic leadership, educational leadership and operational leadership.
Principals will also be given two leadership projects to complete as part of the leadership licensing process. The first is a compulsory KHDA leadership focus, while the second project is a principal’s choice but must be aligned to a UAE Principal Standard.
TELLAL has designed a practical workshop to assist principals in driving pedagogical leadership. The workshop introduces 4 best-practice models to support principals and their school teams in designing, implementing and completing successful school improvement projects. The models provide a scaffold for principals to establish leadership projects that:
  • focus on quality student learning outcomes
  • improve learning and competencies for staff and students
  • enhance interactions between educators and students
  • build connection between all the people inside the school community as well as all the stakeholders outside the school i.e. learning culture
  • link to the UAE Standards for Teachers and Leaders
TELLAL has already run one successful workshop and will be offering another workshop on Wednesday 27thJune (8.00-10.00am) in the TELLAL Training Room. Please register for the workshop on OASIS.
We look forward to supporting principals and their school teams in the Leadership Permit process.
Keeping up-to-date with Early Years Support

As the UAE continues its commitment to exceeding global standards in education and innovation, the Ministry of Education has implemented new requirements for those in the industry, particularly surrounding the education of younger children.

To ensure adherence with these new Early Years training requirements, TELLAL is delighted to offer the CACHE Level 2 Certificate in Introducing Caring for Children and Young People. 

With this programme, all nannies and teaching assistants working in nurseries, Early Years settings and schools can be confident that their qualifications meet all the necessary rules from the Ministry of Education and the UAE Government.  In addition, this programme is awarded by the UK’s Council for Awards in Care, Health and Education and is the latest in a series of CACHE training qualifications offered by TELLAL, offering peace of mind through an internationally accredited and recognised course.  

Designed to fit around your existing schedule, this is a part-time, online learning programme which can be accessed when it suits you.  Each student is assigned a personal mentor for support and monitoring and student assessment is based on the evidence of them demonstrating work-based skills.   Whether you are already working in an Early Years setting or are looking for a career change, this programme will provide you the tools and study needed to excel.

An Essential Qualification for the Essential Years

Despite years of international studies proving the importance of Early Years education on children’s future development and potential, many schools and educational providers are still only able provide generally trained staff for these age groups.

In reality, the impact of a specialised teacher on children in the Early Years stages can be crucial to their progress and continuing education.  This is just one of the reasons that TELLAL has launched their Early Years Specialist Route Teacher Training Programmes; to give all kids the best possible chance of success. 

These blended and flexible training programmes are fully accredited and international recognised teaching qualifications with apprenticeships that are delivered via a practice-based pathway known as School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT).   Whether you are an aspiring teacher or an existing teacher who understands the value in expert training specific to Early Years development, there are multiple options to choose from that will enable you to connect with students in a more effective way.  The state-of-the-art blended programme is unique to the UAE and provides cutting-edge training techniques including face-to-face and avatar sessions, contextualised self-analysis and on-site practice learning.  Everything included in the modules has been purpose-built for the Early Years provisions and is delivered and supported by Senior Leadership experts currently running Early Years schools of their own.

As expected from a TELLAL institute course, this programme is designed to offer the highest quality of training.  Its unique levels of support from expert mentors, engaging assessments, use of placements and flexibility ensure that every participant can have confidence in their training and the opportunity to enhance their performance and careers.  Existing teachers can even fast track some of the course with our Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). 

The foundation years for children are paramount in shaping who they will become; this course will ensure they receive only the best from their teachers.
