With 2022 approaching fast, we thought we would share this episode of The School Show podcast, where two of the UAE's leading educators discuss what education might look like in 2030. Tune in to hear Michael Lambert of Dubai College and Craig Lamshed of RGS Guildford Dubai make their predictions for the coming decade in schools around the world.

Back in Spring 2021, WhichSchoolAdvisor.com's Senior Editor, Jenny Mollon, posed the question “What Will Education Look Like in 2030?” for a special episode of The School Show podcast. With 2022 fast approaching, we thought it timely to share this insightful discussion on the future for our schools again.
To help us all to understand how education is likely to evolve in the coming decade we enlisted two of Dubai's most eminent education futurologists into the studio. Jenny welcomed Craig Lamshed, Founding Principal of one of Dubai’s newest schools, the Royal Grammar School, Guildford Dubai and Mike Lambert, Headmaster of Dubai College, a school which is now something of a Dubai landmark itself, having opened to students in 1978!
Tune in to hear Jenny, Craig and Mike discuss:
Predictions for the imminent future…what are the initiatives that are happening in schools now that will gain traction over the next 2-5 years?
Whether the pandemic has accelerated change in schools?
How pastoral care will evolve and improve?
The qualifications that are gaining in popularity – what are the subjects students want to study?
How the English National Curriculum will change and improve?
How the priorities of the UAE will influence our schools
Predictions for changes to how Dubai schools will be inspected and regulated
The future of exams and, finally...the future of vocational education!
It’s a big, broad discussion and our two highly experienced international school leaders give some superb insight and candid opinion on how things may (and should!) change.
We would love for you to join the conversation on this one…how would you like to see education change in the coming decade? What are your priorities for your own children’s school career? Let us know via our pages on Facebook, Instagram or twitter or by emailing us on [email protected].
The School Show podcast will return in two weeks with more great guests and education talk!
