Nord Anglia University is our flagship professional development initiative that supports our teachers in Abu Dhabi as well as the 3000 other teachers in Nord Anglia Education. It is designed to advance the skills and knowledge of our staff and support their contributions to the advancement of learning for students in our school.
The University provides an online environment for teachers to engage with their peers and to have access to numerous research articles on best practice coming from leading teacher training colleges globally. Teachers are encouraged to make use of this resource and many have taken on research led projects that help them to reflect on what works in the classroom.
In addition to the online resource, Nord Anglia University also arranges regular seminars and workshops for our teachers. For example, in September 2013, teachers took part in a High Performance Seminar led by a team of leading educators from the UK.
