Government and private schools will gather together this week at a conference to discuss their shared goal of improving the education on offer to children in Dubai.
The conference takes place on June 17 at Zayed University, Dubai International Academic City, and will be attended by around 500 principals, school owners, and parent representatives from both government and private schools across Dubai.
The aim of this conference is to bring together all schools on a single platform to understand the importance of inspections in the school improvement cycle.
The conference will include international speakers who will present keynote speeches on international best practice in school quality and self-evaluation across the world.
This demonstrates Dubai Schools Inspection Bureau’s commitment to ensuring that it functions as a global thinker, but in the context of Dubai’s school quality and school improvement.
In the afternoon, a choice of practical workshops will be held that will look in more detail at particular aspects of school inspection and the link between inspection and improvement.
Topics will include inspection planning and management, the role of parents in achieving educational excellence, self-evaluation, and characteristics of excellence in education.
Jameela Al Muhairi, Chief of the Dubai Schools Inspection Bureau, said
“We are striving to establish Dubai as a global centre of educational excellence, and to make sure that education plays a vital part in the development of a successful, healthy and dynamic economy and society in Dubai.
Information about school quality is essential if we are to achieve this vision.
Therefore school inspection needs to be seen in this exciting and important context, as one strand in the KHDA approach to achieving educational excellence.’’
