Teachers in UAE to Gain International Qualification
A new partnership between TELLAL and Liverpool Hope University means practicing teachers in the UAE now have the opportunity to earn an international qualification.
Following on from 18 months of conversations between Liverpool Hope University’s Dean of Education and staff members of the TELLAL Institute, a new initiative for the training and qualification of teachers in Dubai and Abu Dhabi has been established, with Teach Up iPCPP offering globally-orientated teachers an international qualification.
The successful UK-based university, which sits comfortably among the best universities in the UK in terms of its teaching quality, has validated a local course, which is aligned to local schools. Significantly, the TELLAL Institute has designed the provision itself within the context of the UAE.
Conveniently structured on an apprenticeship training programme, model students will work within a school context throughout the 10-month course of their studies and are able to apply in the classroom what they are studying during the course. “What this means,” explains Liverpool Hope University’s Revd Canon Professor Kenneth Newport, “is that existing teachers who are already working in schools, continuing with their teaching responsibilities, are further enhancing their professional expertise through their studies.”
