Hi Joe,

Great to hear from you and thanks for engaging in the forum; especially with such a poignant topic!

I don’t have information and I’d be glad to liaise with the committee and see what engagement (if any) has and can be done with ADEK and the wider MoE.

So far, my personal understanding from the organisations I work with across the UAE, is that the education landscape will change but will include a blended learning approach from September. That will mean a cross between distance and on site learning. Whilst I understand the predicament faced by many, I’d argue that they’re probably in the safest place in terms of how this will be launched and controlled; obviously “watch this space” to see what government organisations will be launching.

From my side I will definitely raise this with the BBG committee and see what information is available.

Thanks again, and hope you are keeping well despite the strange times.
