Video Panel: Which Curriculum?

Throughout last weekend's Which School Show, we hosted a series of topical panel discussions with education experts from across the UAE. In the third of these discussions, we discuss which curriculum is right for your child? The UK curriculum, the US education system, or the International Baccalaureate programme?

There is a variety of curricula offered at international schools in the UAE, so which do you choose for your child? In our third panel discussion at the Which School Show, we’ve brought together leaders from five schools in the UAE to explain the differences and similarities between curricula, so that you feel better equipped to make the right choice of school.

Our host for this session was's International Editor, Carli Allan.  Representing the three main choices of curricula here – the National Curriculum for England, the International Baccalaureate or IB Programme, and the US curriculum – our panel of experts includes:

Our five experts discussed why curriculum matters when choosing a school, and when the differences really appear between the different curricula? We also talk about whether students can move between curricula at any stage in their education, and if there is one curriculum that is perhaps more rigorous than another?

The Which School Show is still open!  You can register here (free!) to visit all 30 exhibitors and watch more of the panel discussions.  The show will close on 21.11.20 - so don't leave it too long!
