Abu Dhabi: More than 1,100 school leaders and heads of faculty in the emirate of Abu Dhabi have been trained about school inspections and their requirements, the Abu Dhabi Education Council (Adec) announced in a statement sent on Monday.

The training provided an overview of the details of Adec inspections, under the Irtiqa’a programme.

During the training, school leaders participated in learning activities designed to promote a professional understanding of the Irtiqa’a process.

“Training is an essential part of the Irtiqa’a process. In order to support schools to achieve international benchmarks of best practice, school leaders and teachers must receive high quality training and support,” said Maryam Saqer, inspection programme manager at the Adec.

Principals and middle management were also provided with resources and support to assist them in the in-school delivery of Irtiqa’a training and development for all staff.
