TELLAL for Teachers

The practical nature of the School-Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) approach has been proven to deliver outstanding results for students, so you can be confident in the quality and portability of the teaching experience you will gain when choosing this route.

The chance to learn from the best

Our teacher training is delivered by experienced, practising teachers from the TELLAL network which includes some of the best educators, education professionals and teachers from around the world.

Entering a world of opportunity

As a TELLAL graduate, you’ll have access to the job opportunities within our schools network in the UAE and around the world. When you’ve completed your training, you’ll start on a vocational journey of continued personal growth and professional development with all the opportunities and support available through the our schools network.

A cultural advantage for international teachers

TELLAL’s teaching reflects the unique cultural dynamic of the United Arab Emirates.

Access to intelligent and forward-thinking teaching methodologies

Wherever possible we take a blended approach to digital technologies in the classroom. TELLAL invests in smart technologies which have proven educational outcomes with a view to giving its network access to the most intelligent, digital learning opportunities. For example, we use avatar simulation training with bug-in-ear feedback to give trainee teachers essential opportunities to test and perfect different behaviours in response to avatar students in a safe and controlled environment.

The first step in a career for life

As part of the TELLAL network, our teacher trainers work in an environment of collaborative improvement, where we encourage and facilitate the sharing of ideas and best practice. Our teachers are inducted into from training in and being inducted into this environment — an ethos and practical approach to carry with you through your teaching career.

TELLAL for Schools

Providing highly capable newly qualified global teachers for schools

As the first and only accredited provider of SCITT training in the UAE, TELLAL offers schools the opportunity for shared ownership of initial teacher training, ensuring a continual pipeline of new teaching talent to the school network. Our trainee teachers are self-determining, self-managing and self-organising learners 
who contribute to the school and network from day 1 of their training. Participating schools open up significant development opportunities for all staff involved in teacher training as programme leads, mentors and peers. Our school partners receive full support from TELLAL’s dedicated Teacher Training Managers at every step of the journey.

Structured leadership pathways

With TELLAL’s Leadership Academy, schools have the opportunity to nurture and develop their own future leaders. Nurturing leadership is essential to talent management, succession planning, staff retention and engagement. Our aim is to engage and challenge our leaders and aspiring leaders thereby enhancing their professional learning and development and growing schools’ internal talent.

Access to best practice, new research and proven methodologies

From subject and curriculum-based knowledge sharing networks to innovative research projects, schools have the opportunity to learn from and participate in developing best practice and cutting edge research. This allows schools to introduce new and evidence-based teaching methodologies and digital technologies ahead of the curve.

Investment in your school’s skills capital

TELLAL’s professional learning and development programmes offers schools a scalable means to invest in their school’s skills capital, manage and grow in-house talent, and improve staff retention through providing valued personal development pathways.
