This formed part of an initiative by the UAE Ministry of Education to enhance education in the region and introduce new teaching methodology to local educators.

The September courses culminated in a workshop on Positive Education which brings focus to bear on the well-being of both students and educators.

These latest workshops were run by the Institute of Positive Education, a team of Australian experts, who were invited to share with us from their vast range of know-how and experience.

Justin pointed out how important it is to use our talents and sharpen our skills through effort and practice: how it takes effort to turn talents to skills… and that it, in turn, takes effort to turn skills into achievements!

Adel Alhaimi and Ahmed Al Hilal collaborate in Ministry’s drive to enhance UAE Education!

The UAE Ministry of Education has been running a series of workshops and training courses in a bid to enhance education in the region – and, more specifically, to introduce new methodology for facilitating Early Childhood Development.

Adel had the privilege of being invited, by Al Shahba Translation, to assist in the communication process by interpreting for international trainers specially invited to run workshops for local educators.

Sharjah TV provided coverage of the Ministry’s endeavors and showed up at the Ajman Teacher Training Centre to interview trainers and educators. We share a clip of some of the interviews:

The TV crew also interviewed Red Sea’s Adel Alhaimi and Al Shahba Translation’s Ahmed Al Hilal, who discussed their role in facilitating communication at the event.

Mr Ahmed Al Hilal (http://alshahba.translation@gmail.com) is General Manager of the well-known Al Shahba Translation Company in Dubai and Abu Dhabi – and Adel appreciates the invitation to collaborate in this vital drive to propel the nation’s education to greater heights.
