Adec welcomes 896 new teachers to Abu Dhabi
Top brass from the Abu Dhabi Education Council welcomed nearly 900 new teachers who have been hired to work across the emirate’s public schools.
The 896 recruits attended an orientation session on Tuesday led by Adec Director General Dr Ali Al Nuaimi and other leading education officials.
“We are looking to boost the loyalty of our future generations who will lead the progress in their country with honour and pride,” Dr Al Nuaimi told the teachers, who included Emiratis, Arabs and other nationalities who will work in public schools across Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and the Al Dhafra Region.
“To achieve this, we need new and innovative ideas to enrich and develop education, and our new teachers are the new spirit of the education system. We count on teachers to achieve a great leap in education and address challenges as they are our key players in the overall development, and with their efforts I am sure better learning outcomes will be achieved.”
The session was held to provide new staff with information about the curriculum applied in Abu Dhabi schools, an overview of Adec's vision, mission, human resources services and policies, and its ongoing educational programs and initiatives.
The new hires were also briefed on Adec's training and professional development programmes as well as the teacher evaluation process and criteria, and were introduced to the UAE’s culture and traditions.
Dr Al Nuaimi emphasized that teachers should be creative, apply advanced pedagogies and produce innovative ideas in order to meet the expectation of the country’s leaders.
“Our leaders are keen to invest in teachers and provide them with the tools and skills needed to succeed in performing their duties,” said Dr Al Nuaimi. “Adec's teachers should excel in teaching, be creative and innovative, enhance education and promote values of loyalty and citizenship among students.”
Teachers have an important role to play in providing the country with educated and informed generations, he said.
“A teacher's impact spreads to reach all students not only one, teachers transfer morals and equip students with knowledge and skills needed in life,” said Dr Al Nuaimi.
