academic backgrounds, educational specialities and methodologies. Additionally,
the courses use an innovative approach that contributes to developing teachers’
abilities and means of communication with students. By this, teachers will be
able to enrich their teaching materials and communicate information to students

the level of the region and the world and in the education sector in general.
The training program will be delivered in-person and
digitally and its content and methodologies will address the cultural diversity
of the UAE. It will also provide teachers with the required tools for modifying
and aligning examples and lessons in their classrooms with a view to streamlining
the engagement of all students for the ultimate end of ensuring the
availability of trainers of moral education curriculum in every school and
Taught every day for 60 minutes to all students, the

Morality, the Individual and the Community, Civic Studies and Cultural Studies.
The curriculum is an innovative and interactive
program designed especially for young students, irrespective of their nationalities
