UAE schools take first steps in Moral Education

Schools have started teaching the new Moral Education subject this academic year, with student progress to be monitored by schools and authorities. Moral Education is based on four pillars: Character and Morality; The Individual and the Community; Civic Studies; and Cultural Studies. For each pillar, there is “a structured sequence of units for grades one through nine”, according to the Dubai School Inspection Bureau.

“A plethora of interactive teaching resources will be used, including multimedia and online resources provided by the Ministry [of Education] and the schools’ counselling and emotional well-being coordinators … This academic year, schools will map out how the four pillars of Moral Education for Grades 1 to 9 are delivered within the curriculum. In the next academic year, all grades will have the 66 units mapped and assessable. Resources will also be provided by the KHDA Moral Education Team.”

According to the KHDA’s School Inspection Supplement (2017-18), Moral Education “may be taught in Arabic, English, another language of instruction or an appropriate combination of these”.
