The education arm of Abu Dhabi developer Aldar Properties has hired more than 650 new teachers to work within its expanding educational network.
The teachers, who will collectively work across 18 schools in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain, were hired following an international recruitment drive as Aldar Education continues its expansion within the private education sector.
Mohamed Khalifa Al Mubarak, chairman of Aldar Education, received the new recruits during an orientation and induction event at Abu Dhabi’s Emirates Palace.
“We know that the success of every young person, in whatever they go on to do in life, is shaped by the education they receive at school,” said Al Mubarak. “There are no great schools without great teachers, and we look forward to building our network of educators and showcasing the incredible dedication and hard work we see day in, day out, across the teaching profession within Aldar Education.”
New and returning staff are now preparing for the start of term, when over 21,000 students from over 100 nationalities will step through the doors of Aldar Education's institutions.
Sahar Cooper, CEO at Aldar Education, said: "Whenever I ask people what they remember most from school, they always talk about the teacher who inspired them. Every one of us has had an educator who changed our lives. Teachers have the chance to impact hundreds of lives during their career - this is the reward of having chosen this vocation.
"That is why we are so excited to be expanding the Aldar Education family further, as we strive to shape the future."
Cooper added: “We received an unprecedented number of applications from educators looking to further expand their careers within Aldar Education, paving the way for exciting times ahead."
