- To be able to analyse information from the Self-Evaluation and use this strategically to plan for continuous improvement, monitor progress and impact on standards toward outstanding practice in the Early Years.
Children in the Early Years have a right to be ‘rich children’ in all aspects of their lives. It is the earliest years of education that provide our youngest children with the foundation for all future life and learning, encompassing; the child’s home and family, social relationships and the programs, health and well-being, aspects of learning and subjects.
The impact of the recent world health crisis has highlighted even more importantly the recognition of the need for children to have access to the highest quality in their earliest years and for early childhood setting and schools to re-evaluate their own practice and provision. The UAE has an ambitious National Agenda and a rigorous Inspection Framework to support the evaluation of schools, including Early Years settings and Kindergartens. Nurseries not currently under the UAE Inspection system will benefit from aspects of the course covering self-evaluation and be supported in planning for improvement. The UAE Framework will help schools and settings to evaluate their own practice, celebrate success, identify areas for development and support a process of continuous improvement whilst also providing a ‘unified basis’ for the evaluation of all early years’ provision in the UAE. However, it is critical that schools use the Framework as a guide for high quality practice, rather than an annual ‘preparation for inspection’
This interactive course explores the UAE Inspection Framework and in detail, from the principles behind the process, through a detailed analysis and support for authentic application of the content and a practical opportunity to begin or to review the current self-evaluation process. The focus is on supporting Early Years leaders and teachers to understand the process, be confident and proactive in using the UAE Inspection Framework efficiently and effectively in practice and to manage self-evaluation in a focused, impact evident and strategic way.
Schools not under the UAE Framework will also benefit from this course in light of their own context and inspection or accreditation system.
