ABU DHABI: Around 5,300 teachers of the third cycle (9th to 12th grades) in all public schools, will be subjected to a written exam in 26 centers across the country today, April 14. The tests will include six basic subjects: Arabic, English, Mathematics, Chemistry , Biology and Physics. The duration of the exam has been set to be two and a half hours, and will cover the duration of three long regular periods, according to the lists issued by the National and International Teachers Tests and Licences Department. While the professional tests’ date has been scheduled to be conducted early next academic year, as per the announcement from the Ministry earlier. In accordance with the decision, teacher’s licence will be mandatory for practicing the profession of teaching, by the end of 2020.

The licence criteria include points like maintaining a professional and ethical behaviour, possessing professional knowledge and practices within the school environment, and the responsibility of self-professional development. The professional licensing standards for school leaders include professional, ethical, strategic educational and operational leadership.

To be eligible for the teachers’ licence, the applicant must pass the written tests, which will be followed by completing the reference achievement file online. Further, the test of specialisation assesses the cognitive aspect of applicant in the subject. While, the standard of professionalism and education will be tested on four basic markings, namely: professional behaviour, professional knowledge, professional general practices, and professional development.

Only the teachers who pass both tests will be issued a licence which will be valid for one to three years, depending on the teacher’s qualifications, experience and performance.

Those who fail will be given two more chances to resit after completing ministry-approved training programmes tailored to their needs.
