ADEC and the Ministry of Education have announced the new Emirati School Model which will standardise the curriculum, assessments and examinations of all public and private schools following the Ministry of Education curriculum.

Abdul Rahman Al Hammadi, undersecretary at the Ministry of Education told Gulf News, “this monumental collaboration between the ministry and the Abu Dhabi Education Council (ADEC) will ensure provision of best education for students.”

“The two authorities have formed a joint committee to outline a standardisation for the education system. This, in turn, has [allowed for] the establishment of plans covering all basic courses and an agreement on fundamental details."

"Preparations to ensure a smooth beginning of the 2017-18 academic year, and the ministry’s tasks and responsibilities have also been set up,” he continued.

The 2017/18 academic year has been designed as a transitional year, with the first year of unification and implementation beginning in 2018/19.

During the 2017/18 academic year, schools will be monitored by the Ministry of Education to ensure that they comply with laws, regulations and policies.
