Posted by Neil King

A new wave of sponsorship from the Emirates Foundation is likely to create interest from those with a property investment in Dubai.

It is set to give 100 national teachers in the emirates the opportunity of attending the second TeachMe conference.

TeachMe is open to school administrators, teachers and educational professionals in the region.

It will provide information on teaching practices and it is the aim of the Emirates Foundation to make sure that as many educational professionals as possible participate.

Khuloud Al Nuwais, the Emirates Foundation's director of projects, said: "The foundation is very glad to support such an important conference for the second year.

"We expect it to create a positive impact on the quality of teaching and curriculum development in UAE schools."

The event will take place at the Media Rotana Hotel from November 11th.

The conference is run by Rearden Educational which works towards making education in the Middle East better.

It currently has bases in Dubai and Beirut and is also responsible for children's bookshop Kidshop & Mustard.
