The Ahmed bin Majed Private School in Al Khoudh played host to Muscat's first professional development workshop for teachers at Cambridge-affiliated schools over the weekend.
More than 50 teachers of Cambridge IGSCE Mathematics and English as a Second Language from around the region attended the workshops to build on their skills and take the opportunity to exchange ideas with their counterparts.
Demand for courses such as this one has been growing in Oman, according to officials at the Cambridge Assessment Group who coordinated the event. “This is something which will add value to the participants' CVs and enhance the skills used in classrooms and schools,” said Wissam el Hassanieh, development manager at University of Cambridge International Examination, part of the Cambridge Assessment Group.
“It is both a privilege and an honour to host the Cambridge Teachers Professional Development Workshops at Ahmed bin Majed School. These workshops will allow us to use our facilities to benefit teachers from near and far,” said Najim al Timami, chairman of the board at Ahmed bin Majed School.
The University of Cambridge International Examinations is one of the world's oldest providers of international education programmes and qualifications for 5-19 year olds. It is part of the Cambridge Assessment group, a non-profit organisation and a department of the University of Cambridge in the UK.
