The Ministry of Education has recently launched a ground-breaking educational programme in advanced sciences to prepare elite students to compete both nationally and internationally in academic and professional career pathways.
The programme will prepare students to meet the entry requirements of the best Universities in the UAE and overseas. In recognition of the globally competitive environment in which students will be participating, a number of lessons, such as science and mathematics will be taught in English, but with the onus still on the values and traditions of the UAE and its language.
The programme is taught by talented teachers from around the world, who have been brought into the country to deliver the lessons and support the students in achieving their best grades. The government, through the MoE, will leave no stone unturned in ensuring that these students reach their highest educational potential.
The role of the Cluster Manager Academic Advisor is to support the Principal, Co- coordinators and Teachers to realise the vision of the ASP, through professional leadership and management of the teaching and learning. Cluster Manager Academic Advisors will look after a number of these schools in small ‘clusters’. The school could be located in any of the northern emirates but usually close together.
Cluster Manager Science Advisors are required to facilitate and encourage learning which enables students to achieve high standards, in line with the vision of the ASP.
