Dubai's private education watchdog will be joined on annual inspections by representatives of the International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum, considered to be among the best in the world.

The IB experts will help keep the Dubai Schools Inspection Bureau up to date with curriculum developments.

There are six schools offering the full IB curriculum in Dubai, while others offer it at certain levels. IB schools in the emirate educate more than 5,000 pupils.

The authority will also be looking to assess the effect of an IB education on Emirati pupils' community participation.
