Taaleem has pledged to retain their outstanding teachers and provide unequivocal support for their staff until normal operations are resumed.
Khalid Al Tayer, Chairman of Taaleem, commented: “The quality of our schools is built upon the quality of our teachers. Their efforts, inspiration, dedication and professionalism are the qualities that positively separate our schools from others in a crowded and competitive market. We are a values-based organisation and have taken positive steps to support our entire community of schools. In line with the national agenda set out by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s vision, this is a clear commitment by Taaleem to our community to support and enhance government initiatives across the UAE.”
Alan Williamson, CEO of Taaleem, further commented: “Taaleem are a family of values driven schools and we have made the choice to support our parent community in these challenging times. We gratefully acknowledge the extraordinary efforts that our parents are making to support their children with their learning in these unprecedented and challenging times. We have consulted widely with our community and taken time to decide best how to do the right thing for all our parents. We believe that as a home-grown company, providing relief for all was morally the right thing to do. With the announcement of this discount, we hope to show not only our support for all our parents but demonstrate how much we value them as a community; we are all in this together. We will continue to invest in our ‘outstanding’ teachers, who are making incredible efforts to deliver a fantastic programme of Distance Learning. Parents should be reassured that when normal schooling resumes, all our schools will be incredibly well prepared, fully staffed and resourced with our existing inspired and passionate staff.”
