In March 2023, RSAcademics organised a tour of Dubai for 8 educational leaders from the UK. We wanted to give them the chance to meet school leaders, to talk to students and teachers and to learn about the culture, systems and structures which underpin the development of schools in Dubai. The purpose was for their experience in Dubai to shape and stimulate their thinking for many years to come. And the name we gave to the whole experience… Dubai Inspires.

The 3 ½ day tour began with a visit to the offices of the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) to set the scene. Thereafter, we visited 8 more schools for tours, presentations, discussions and Q&A session, travelling from one to the other in a modified yellow school bus. On the last morning we held a symposium in which our UK guests shared their learnings from the week and discussed these with our hosts from the schools and other, invited guests.

If you would like to read a report from each school visit or to find out what our guests learned from the experience, please download the “Dubai Inspires” report for free here.
