3 Conceptual and contextual Philosophical outlook Arab world citizenship through global education Strategic Drivers Student-centric Techno-centric High Quality Innovative Education System focused Core competencies Empowerment Grounded Engagement in Arabic Information values & Self responsibility tradition Ethical “ Teacher education of high quality has three distinct tasks. These are to uphold the values and principles of being a scientific education, to be a professionally relevant education with a highly developed regional mode of professional knowledge in its knowledge base and a means for the State to regulate and develop the national education (school) system according to a scientific language and practices (concepts and grammar).” Bagley, C., Beach, D. & Harris, T. (2008) Review of ECAE-Abu Dhabi. Durham University Report (p7-12)

4 BTC Model Ministry of Education Schools Bahrain Teachers College University of Bahrain In advanced knowledge based societies.... “Teacher education is State regulated in respect of the aims of teacher education in order to guarantee the preconditions for a nationally equivalent high quality State education..... This implies a strong but not over-powering State bureaucracy of professionally educated administrators, researchers, policy analysts and policy developers.” Bagley, C., Beach, D. &Harris, T. (2008) Review of ECAE-Abu Dhabi. Durham University Report (p7-12)

5 Recruitment and Programs “Access at all levels is competitive in the best institutions and is based not only on the successful completion of prior-level studies. Students will have to go through a rigorous selection process in order to obtain access. The clarity of the student’s expressed understanding of learning and research are attributed most importance in selection procedures not just their previous knowledge performances on tests and evaluations.” Programs Bachelor of Education BEd Cycle BEd Cycle 2 Arabic 5016 BEd Cycle 2 English 3925 BEd Cycle 2 Science & Math 5038 BEd (Vocational) 1850 Total Post Graduate Diploma in Ed.
