Over 165 graduates walked the stage in recognition and celebration of their accomplishments on TELLAL’s teacher training programmes at a ceremony held at GEMS World Academy. The graduates were awarded for their qualifications by Dr. Linda Rush, Senior Vice-President of TELLAL Institute, and Reverend Canon Professor Kenneth G.C. Newport, Pro Vice-Chancellor & Executive Dean of Education at Liverpool Hope University.
Dr. Linda Rush “passed the baton” to the Graduating Class of June 2019 and challenged them to apply all they have learned throughout their studies and experiences with TELLAL, with an emphasis on making a difference in the world for the benefit of their students and the next generation.
Louise Walker, Apprenticeship in Teaching Practice (ATP), Early Years and Graduating Class of June 2019 said: “Deciding to become a qualified teacher through TELLAL’s Teach Best program is the best decision I have made. The programme’s unique school-centred approach meant I was in schools within a week of starting the course. The nature of this programme, where theory and practice intertwine from day one, enabled me to apply the different theories and strategies covered during the TELLAL sessions immediately. Equally, the weekly TELLAL sessions provided us with continuous support through our placements and through the rollercoaster associated with teaching young children. I recommend this program to anyone thinking of pursuing a career in education.”
This academic year in the UAE alone, TELLAL has impacted over 150,000 students with more than 8,000 teachers and school leaders participating in different programmes. So far TELLAL has carried over 390 Arabic teacher and leadership training across with quality integrated product development.
TELLAL is the first and only institute in the region to offer teaching training qualifying routes via a practice-based training pathway known as School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT).
