VGF and Dubai Cares to train 250,000 teachers worldwide

Views: 349

The Varkey GEMS Foundation (VGF), and the UAE-based philanthropic organisation, Dubai Cares, will be training around 250,000 teachers for the next 10 years. The Varkey GEMS Foundation is the philanthropic arm of an international education company GEMS Education. The two organisations have signed an agreement to launch a teacher-training programme to improve the standard of classroom teaching. The agreement was signed at the Global Education and Skills Forum, held in Dubai from March 15-17. Lack of trained teachers is a barrier to educating students who are not going to school regularly.
Tariq Al Gurg, Chief Executive Officer of Dubai Cares, says strategic partnerships between organisations helps in sustainable primary educational programs. He says the partnership aims to create positive impact for the underprivileged children and their families. Over the next two decades, 7 million new teachers will be required to serve the global population.
