[Abu Dhabi] State school teachers in the capital will be tested in English, maths and science to ensure their readiness for the next phase of the New School Model roll-out.
The Abu Dhabi Education Council (Adec) will extend its revised state school system to Grade 6 next year.
Before then, English, maths and science teachers for Grades 6 to 9 will have to take a Cambridge Placement Test to ascertain their readiness to teach a bilingual education model.
The online test assesses listening, reading and language knowledge skills and is based on the Common European Framework of
Reference for Languages. Based on the results, teachers will be referred for training to prepare them for the new standards and curriculum that will be adopted next year.
[ABU DHABI] The capital’s education regulator is bringing in guidelines to help schools prevent bullying and other behavioural problems in pupils.
The guidelines, developed last year by the Abu Dhabi Education Council (Adec), will add to a disciplinary code issued by the Ministry of Education in December.
Adec is training educators on how to use the guidelines in workshops. (via Bullying guidelines brought in by education council - The National)
