Through the Ta’alouf Teachers Training program, Al Jalila Foundation is committed to supporting inclusion in the classroom so that every child of determination can reach their full potential. Since 2014 the Ta’alouf Teachers Training program, in partnership with Zayed University, has been offered to educators across the UAE equipping them with the skills they need to ensure all the children attending their classes will blossom and develop to the greatest of their abilities.
St. Mary’s Catholic High School, Fujairah has been sending their teachers to the one-year program since 2018 which has contributed to far greater inclusion of children with all abilities in their classes.
Principal Father Suresh Kumar has noticed a marked improvement in the school, “Through the Al Jalila Foundation Ta’alouf Teachers Training program, the teachers at St. Mary’s Catholic High School, Fujairah have been able to adapt their approach to special education within their classrooms. The teachers have been able to better assist in early identification and subsequently suggest and implement strategies to support these children to reach their highest potential. As a result, the school continually progresses towards the goal of being an inclusive learning environment. We are excited to continue our partnership with Al Jalila Foundation and increase our capacity for inclusion.”
Al Jalila Foundation, in partnership with Zayed University, has trained 548 teachers from 163 government and private schools across the seven emirates, to deliver on our commitment to support the happiness and wellbeing of children of determination.
