Alignment with the KHDA in the UAE
Zen PD aims to ensure schools are aligned with the UAE Vision 2021 of good leaders and teachers in all schools. Here is a list of our training programmes on the KHDA website.
Teachers & Leaders’ Wellbeing
We have developed our teachers and leaders training courses with the focus on the wellbeing of the participants. We want the trainees to come out of the training not only upskilled but ready to apply the learnings from their courses into their daily school life without feeling overwhelmed but rather rewarded and empowered. That’s why we reward our training participants with a free wellbeing class to reward them for their achievements. To learn more check our why wellbeing page.
Integrating the 21st Century Skills
Training participants will be trained to transform their education journey embedding 21st century knowledge and skills like critical thinking, innovation, and research in all subjects in their curricula.
In this modern era we live in we value the importance of being a forward thinking company, hence we have developed teaching methodologies not only with the focus on the wellbeing of the training participants by offering a free wellbeing session during the training but also in line with the 21st century technology and learning methods. We will be delivering our courses using blended learning -classroom based group sessions as well as online learning coming soon.
