Maths resources for English speaking schools in UAE

Postby Teejaypublishers » 08 Jul 2014, 13:08

Hi I hope someone can help put me in touch with the person in charge of commissioning new resources for Dubai.

My name is Tom Strang and I run a company called Teejay Publishers in Scotland. We are a family business producing Core Maths Textbooks supported by photopiable homework/assessment packs. We are the largest provider of Maths resources in Scotland and sell to almost every Secondary and Independent school and over 95% of Primaries. Our Scottish books cover ages 4 to 18 and are based on the New Curriculum for Excellence in Scotland. Following our success in Scotland, we have now written similar Core Textbooks for the New Maths Curriculum being rolled out in England this summer. I think your English speaking schools in Abu Dubai might be interested in our Core Textbooks and would be willing to send you free copies of them for you to look over. If you would like to visit our website www.teejaypublishers@btinternet, you can peruse the resources and see why we are now the market leader in Maths provisions. I would love to talk to someone regarding our resources and how we can help improve even further Mathematics and Numeracy in your country

... I think your English speaking schools in Abu Dubai ...

Dubai and Abu Dhabi are different emirates and cities in the UAE.

The UAE Ministry of Education is the government ministry for schools in the UAE, but each emirate has its own education authority and is more likely to be a useful contact point for you. However, with respect to resources, the government bodies have more say in which textbooks are used in public schools, which are mostly Arabic speaking - some public schools use English as a medium of instruction for some subjects including Mathematics.

Private schools organise their own resources individually, or possibly as a group if there are several schools owned by one organisation. The government authorities only get involved with private school resources to censor or ban any which they deem to be unacceptable for use in the UAE.

I'd suggest you contact the education authorities in each emirate for public schools: - ADEC for Abu Dhabi - KHDA for Dubai - other emirates

Largest school groups in the UAE are: - GEMS, have many schools, with several different curriculums - UK, US, Indian, IB - Taaleem - mostly in Dubai - Aldar Education - mostly in Abu Dhabi - other providers

And then try private schools individually. List of them is here:

By the way, now is not the best time to try contacting schools. They are all shut until September. If you're lucky you might get to talk to a receptionist or security guard, neither of whom you can rely on to either review your books in detail or pass them on to the relevant personnel. Exceptions might be new schools planning to open for September 2014 academic year, they might be worth trying. But make sure you are in contact with the school or department head. Check the lists of new schools in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, UAE (links on the UAE school list page).

Established schools are more than likely to have resources already sorted out for 2014-2015 academic year.
