The UAE Ministry of Education, Abu Dhabi Education Council, Dubai Education Council and the British Council are collaborating on the project held at the Abu Dhabi Education Council's Emirates National Centre for Educational Development. British Council launched this training programme with the support of Ministries of Education. The British Council has collaborated with UK education consultants to provide training on ICT tools for education, including e-Languages and Global Gateway. The British Council is also working on the ICT in Schools project in co-operation with all the Education Zones in the UAE. The ICT training workshop is aimed to increase the skills of teachers in the use of ICT in the classroom and to develop the level of confidence in the use of online tools for international collaboration in education. All UK schools have broadband connections and the aim in the UK is to create e-confident schools, effectively using ICT in management, learning and communications to parents.
