If you seek to create learners today who will be leaders tomorrow, you must teach in Abu Dhabi.

They created the New School Model which takes a student-centered approach to teaching, completely different from the old model of rote learning and memorization.

As part of the reform, foreign elementary teachers in Abu Dhabi teach the core subjects of English, Math and Science as part of an integrated, outcomes based curriculum. If you have experience teaching students in Grades 1 to 5 and are passionate about developing the student as a communicator, thinker and problem solver then the ADEC program is for you.

About Abu Dhabi

The emirate of Abu Dhabi is by far the largest of the seven emirates and divided into three sections: Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and Al Gharbia (the Western Region). In the city of Abu Dhabi, you will find luxury and glam as well as meet people from around the world. The section of Al Ain is an Oasis in the desert. It has everything you could need, plus it’s closed to Abu Dhabi, Dubai and also to the mountains. The western region of Al Gharbia is a large expanse of land and home to many smaller towns and cities, therefore living here you’ll really get in touch with the local people.
