About technical schools in Abu Dhabi
Teach Away works regularly with two major Abu Dhabi-based hiring bodies to provide qualified English-speaking education professionals. The Abu Dhabi Vocational Education and Training Institute (ADVETI) and the Institute for Applied Technology (IAT) are vocational schools that each hires hundreds of new teachers and instructors every year.
The aim of technical and vocational schools in Abu Dhabi is to prepare students for employment. Between them, ADVETI and IAT provide a wide range of education topics; students study topics as focused as engineering and aviation.
Teaching with ADVETI
Educators employed by ADVETI are essentially technical college instructors. ADVETI schools are composed of students who have completed high school and are 17 years of age or older. As I mentioned above, these schools’ programs are designed to equip students with employable knowledge and skills.
As noted on the ADVETI website, “ADVETI Is Licensed By The Ministry of Higher Education And Scientific Research” and “the programs offered at ADVETI have been specifically designed in consultation with Abu Dhabi industry and businesses to ensure that ADVETI graduates are employable.”
Diploma programs at ADVETI are offered in one of their three faculties: Business, Information Technology, or Engineering.
Teaching with IAT
IAT instructors may work in a high school or college capacity. IAT offers Career-based Technical Education (CTE) at high schools, or secondary and tertiary schools, as well as higher education programs in engineering, aviation, and nursing at the higher learning level.
With state-of-the-art facilities and high quality English-speaking education professionals, the Institute of Applied Technology is a vital piece of UAE’s and Abu Dhabi’s educational ambitions.
