A very warm welcome to the Ministry of Education’s English Department from all the Team.

This website is intended to provide you with information on our work, your responsibilities and, if you are joining us from overseas, some general information about living and working in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

We have tried to include as much information as we feel would be useful, however, your own research will also provide you with key insights into the UAE.

A good place to start is the Hayyakom website.  Hayyakom is an initiative which has been set up by the Government to raise awareness of Emirati culture, particularly amongst teachers.
