HE Hussein Al Hammadi-MOE

We would like to express our deepest thanks to our wise leaders, His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, “May God protect him”, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, Chairman of the Board and Ruler of Dubai, “May God protect him”, His Highness General Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, “May God protect him” and their brothers, Highnesses, Supreme Council Members and rulers of the Emirates.

I would like to congratulate all employees of the Ministry of Education, in particular, the administrative, teaching and technical staff. We appreciate your ideas, objective perspectives and the manner in which you have been carrying out your duties. I would like to stress that the ministry is relying on you in the upcoming school year, to bring about the desired development of taking education in the UAE to the highest level, so that it becomes a model that can be emulated.

All employees of the Ministry of Education are included in this development process. We rely on your educational experience and encourage you to work as a team in order to achieve the ministry’s goals. The ministry plans to focus its efforts in ensuring that each employee receives the necessary training and professional development. This training will allow you to self-evaluate and to keep abreast of new developments in the field of education. The ministry will ensure that all channels of communication between all stakeholders are kept open. We also plan to include improved means of communication as it relates to feedback resulting from our field trips and open discussion forums.

We rely on the field of education in helping the country to develop. Let me assure you that the Ministry of Education is on track in making the changes needed that will allow the UAE to keep pace with global developments in education. We are utilising the best modern technologies available in order to ensure that our students develop their creativity and innovativeness.

I encourage all students to take advantage of the opportunities presented to them and to follow the instructions of their parents and teachers. Be assured that the ministry is committed to providing you with high-quality education in all its schools.

The Ministry of Education is looking forward to increased cooperation and closer strategic partnerships with the education boards, parents, local businesses, media organisations and the wider community. In order to achieve our desired objectives, it is imperative that we make a concerted effort to work together in improving education in the UAE. We appreciate your support in helping the country’s efforts to move forward in the development of education.
