Taaleem - One of the largest, most respected education providers in the United Arab Emirates
Taaleem, formerly known as Beacon Education, is a school management company set up in 2003 to develop and run high quality education projects.â â The founding partners identified two distinct gaps in the market: the need for more top-quality schools to cater for the growing population and the desire of the many investors to plough their funds into ventures that will help to secure the long-term success of the region. Taaleem was founded to fill these gaps.â
Our Focus is first and foremost on education and students. The comprehensive and holistic approach we employ means that we place as much emphasis on the emotional, social, moral and physical development of our students as on the academic.â
Our Purpose is to inspire young minds and help our students to identify and develop their passions and talents. To achieve this, Taaleem will provide children with the skills and knowledge to compete on a level playing field with students from the world’s top schools.â â
Our Vision is to be the most respected provider of early childhood, primary and secondary education in the Gulf.â â
