- PRESS RELEASE
H.E. Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research, visited Abu Dhabi Education Council's (ADEC's) booth during his tour visit at the 6th Najah Education Training Careers 2012 exhibition.
"ADEC works In line with the Emiratisation policy and aims through its participation in "Najah" to present the available career opportunities, recruit qualified candidates and brief them about application process and procedures," said Mr. Al Sayari.
ADEC is hosting information booths for its key higher education partners i.e. Emirates College for Advanced Education, Paris-Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi, INSEAD, Mohammed V University, and New York University.
Professor Jim Mienczakowski, Vice Chancellor at the Emirates College for Advanced Education (ECAE) and Senior Advisor to Director General, ADEC, explained that since the ECAE opened in 2007, it has always relied on Najah as a way of meeting new student recruits and becoming better known to the public.
"ECAE is a specialized, accredited, university that is dedicated to preparing the next generation of Emirati teacher educators and to developing a professional teacher workforce. Each year since opening ECAE, as a partner of Abu Dhabi Education Council (ADEC), has shared ADEC's stand in the main pavilion of the Najah Exhibition. Once again, in 2012 we will be at the Najah - meeting the public and hopefully sharing our passion for the importance of teacher education with students and colleagues who participate in the Najah events," said Professor Mienczakowski.
He added: "Proudly, in December 2012, ECAE will pass an important milestone - our first 159 students, including the first 6 new male Emirati teachers to join the Abu Dhabi workforce in three years, will graduate with an accredited B.Ed degree. If you haven't seen ECAE's advertisements featuring our male and female students whilst you visit Najah - or on posters all around Abu Dhabi - look out for them. They are easy to recognize, they have our real slogan and mission on them: Proud to be an Emirati. Proud to be a Teacher."
Prof. Dr. Eric Fouache, Vice-Chancellor of Paris-Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi said, "Our continued participation with ADEC at NAJAH confirms that this is a valuable event for highlighting the various courses we offer to potential students living in the UAE. Paris-Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi post-graduate degrees are taught in English and our undergraduate degrees in French, with an option to take a French intensive course for those who wish to follow Sorbonne bachelors. As an emirati university that benefits from the 760 years of experience of the Sorbonne, our degrees are granted by Paris, following the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), which is recognized by the UAE Minister of Higher Education and Research and world-wide."
INSEAD's Dean, Mr. Dipak C. Jain, said that Abu Dhabi 2030 vision identified education as one of the main cores for achieving sustainable development and building an economy- based knowledge.
"As one of the leading business schools in the region, INSEAD works towards achieving Abu Dhabi vision goals by contributing to the education development in the Emirate and training the future generation of business leaders", added Mr. Jain.
Professor Farok Hamada, Vice Chancellor of Mohammed V University, said "United Arab Emirates support its students by offering them unique educational opportunities in a number of the most prestigious universities hosted in the country". He also emphasized the benefit of participating in "Najah" as a way to exchange experience and knowledge.
All Education institutes participating in ADEC's pavilion along with ADEC's team will be available at all times during the exhibition which will end in October 18,2012 and will offer visitors and students' academic guidance, answer their inquiries and receive employment applications.
Najah provides an excellent platform for our university to engage with students from across the emirate and to present the unique scholarship and enrichment opportunities that we have available for UAE nationals and residents. We look forward to the opportunity to have one-on-one conversations with students about the benefits of attending a liberal arts and sciences college, especially with students who are new to this style of education," NYUAD Assistant Dean for Admissions Lisa Taylor said.
