How UAE schools are preparing students for the future

K12 schools in the UAE are slowly becoming great examples of schools that are developing transferable skills and building character among students.These institutions are supported by the UAE government, which has reportedly allocated Dh 5 billion to invest in state-of-the-art infrastructure for schools over the next six years, according to the Khaleej Times. The UAE Cabinet, chaired by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, recently reviewed progress of the ‘Emirati School Model’.This model is being implemented in 800 public and private schools across the UAE to “prepare generations capable of leading the future of the UAE”.The aim is to address the needs of the job market  “through a modern curriculum that offers different educational fields”, as well as focusing on recreational activities to ensure every area of student development is given fair attention. Reflecting this, through the use of advanced technology and innovative teaching methods, UAE schools are fostering a learning environment that engages students and encourages them to think outside the box. The UAE government is also making strides for the development of new modern vocational courses to attract more Emirati students as a part of the Emiratisation strategy. Plus, the government is specifically focusing on developing more institutes for vocational training in order to fulfill the demand for skilled labor from industries, which is part of their mission for Vision 2021 and other plans focused on diversifying the economy.
