The Abu Dhabi Education Council (Adec) has announced the recruitment of 302 Emirati teachers in public schools across the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. The new batch of teachers are university graduates specialised in education and other related disciplines.
The percentage of Emirati teachers at public schools has reached 52 per cent in the emirate, according to Adec. 
The council held an orientation session for the newly recruited teachers to familiarise them on the assessment process, requirements and on the overall curriculum and the educational process.
Dr Ali Al Nuaimi, director-general of Adec, said: "Believing that investment in education and knowledge is an investment for shaping the future and helping future generations face the current challenges and proceeding with the nation's development and prosperity, our wise leadership is keen to support Emirati teachers in all aspects so that are able to perform their mission."
Adec's keenness to increase the number of Emirati staff at the education sector comes in line with its Emiratisation process, and efforts to continue to elevate the overall quality of education. 
Al Nuaimi labelled the newly appointed teachers as a new generation of professionally qualified pioneers who play a key role in educating future generations according to global standards.
"We are looking to boost the loyalty of our future generations, who will lead the progress in their country with honour and pride. We count on you to achieve a great leap in education as you are key players in the overall development, and with your efforts, I am sure that better learning outcomes will be achieved," he said.
Dr Al Nuaimi stressed that the existence of Emirati personnel in the schools consolidates culture, religion, language and belonging and constitutes the lifeline of the education process, as it provides national role model who preserves identity, customs and traditions.
Mohammed Salem Al Dhaheri, executive director of school operations of Adec, said the council is keen on selecting the most efficient teachers to carry out the teaching process and properly qualifying the newly appointed teachers to help in managing education in the Emirate in accordance with highest international standards.
"I chose the profession of education because it is a noble profession that contributes to building generations capable of preserving the country's achievements and pioneering status. My mission will be to help students choose a better future," said Salem Hussain Al Yafie, a newly recruited Arabic teacher.
Yusuf Mohammed Al Junibi, a geology teacher, said he preferred to join the education sector rather than working as a geologist despite the fact that the latter has more financial advantages. "I seek being a builder of the community's structure," he said.
