183 GEMS Arabic teachers were engaged in a two-week immersive Arabic language awareness/pedagogy training at GEMS Dubai American Academy as part of their participation in the TeachBest KHDA approved Apprenticeship in Teaching Practice – Arabic Route.

They have joined this unique programme, delivered by TELLAL Institute in Partnership with Sharek Centre – London, to develop themselves professionally and to fulfill the teaching qualification requirement towards their journey to Teacher Competence.

In addition to raising teachers’ knowledge and awareness of the nature of the Arabic language teaching and learning, the training has also made a significantly positive impact on teachers’ practices in classrooms, which is evident in their school-based tasks and assignments they accomplished, individually and collaboratively, as well as through lesson observations in their real classrooms.
