In Abu Dhabi, visiting Union Minister of Education Dharmendra Pradhan and UAE counterpart Dr. Ahmad Al Falasi signed the Memorandum of Understanding.

According to a statement from the Union ministry of education, the purpose of the MoU is to further the two nations' current collaboration in the area of educational institutions.

“This MoU encompasses various aspects, including the Exchange of Information in Education, Capacity Development of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) teaching staff, and the Facilitation of academic collaboration between Higher Education Institutions in both countries. This collaboration will pave the way for offering Twinning, Joint Degree, and Dual Degree Programs, further strengthening educational ties between our nations,” the ministry said in a statement.

“The MoU will facilitate the creation of a Joint Working Group (JWG) chaired by a representative of the Ministry of Education from India and UAE. The JWG shall meet at least once a year alternately to review the implementation of this memorandum,” the ministry said.

Cooperation in the field of Capacity Development of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) teaching staff has been envisaged under this MoU,” it added.

In addition to thanking his colleague for supporting Indian curricula in UAE schools, Pradhan also spoke about methods to help student exchange programmes between India and the UAE.

“UAE being a Global Economic hotspot and India being a Global Talent hotspot, both sides should work together to build a knowledge bridge to cement our civilisational connect,” Pradhan said.

Union Minister Pradhan, who is in the UAE for three days, also visited 42 Abu Dhabi, a Disruptive Learning institution.

42 Abu Dhabi’s thrust on removing barriers to education for realizing the vision of a tech-enabled future is laudatory, Pradhan said.

He emphasized that flexibility and learning while earning are equally important recommendations of NEP 2020. "Open 24/7 all year round, it provides perfect flexibility to learners to also learn and earn as per their schedules," he said.

At Abu Dhabi Indian School (ADIS), he also interacted with the teachers and students.

According to Pradhan, one of the largest schools in Abu Dhabi catering to the Indian community– ADIS, is nurturing Indian students and instilling in them the culture, values, and ethos of both India and the UAE.
