Transition to Teach

Transition to Teach is an exciting new initiative, aimed at promoting teaching to career changers. Funded by the Department for Education, the programme identifies and supports professionals who have already had a successful career in business and industry to make the transition to becoming a teacher. The ambitious scheme focuses on encouraging professionals to recognise how their existing skills and experience can be applied to the classroom environment, to make a positive impact on young people. Transition to Teach therefore works to support the government’s plan to assist schools in attracting talented teachers to provide an outstanding level of education across the country.

Cognition Education is managing the programme, and will faciliate the tailored support each participant receives at each stage of the process from the initial application through to the end of their first year in teaching. An advisor is assigned to ensure the process runs seamlessly, helping each individual realise their full potential and successfully make the transition into the teaching profession.

Talent to Teach

In March 2018, Cognition Education embarked on delivering a programme called Further Pathways to FE (FP2FE) on behalf of the Education and Training Foundation (ETF). Since rebranded to Talent to Teach FE, the programme’s aim is to raise the profile of teaching within the student population, by offering final-year university students (or those studying for a postgraduate qualification), a paid 40-hour work placement within a further education setting.

The programme has been such a resounding success that it has doubled in size. In addition, we already know that the programme has had tangible positive impact, with some participants being offered trainee teaching posts and/or offered places on teacher training programmes.

Hamdan Bin Mohammed Order of Merit for Educational and Sports Schools

This award was born out of the UAE’s Sports Innovation Lab, under the theme of happiness, health & community, and was overseen by the Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai and H.H. Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al-Maktoum, the Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Sports Council.

The purpose of the programme was therefore to determine and improve schools’ proficiency in:

– Boosting students’ health and well-being and ensuring that participation in sport is considered a lifestyle choice;

– Enabling the school community to acquire healthy behaviors;

– Creating a safe and healthy sporting environment;

– Developing inclusive physical education programs, infrastructure and services; and

– Creating a nurturing atmosphere that encourages participation for all and further develops talented and promising athletes.

In response, Cognition developed a comprehensive process that was robust, without being onerous on the participating schools. Our team supported the development of programme materials (including standards criteria and metrics), facilitated orientation sessions, managed the application process, undertook the data capture, evaluations, school assessment and final feedback reporting.  Schools were then able to understand areas of strength as well as areas that could be improved to further enhance their provision in sport, physical education, health and wellbeing.

The programme has been a fantastic success with all schools demonstrating a high standard. The process highlighted some of the superb practice that is currently happening in schools in Dubai in the key areas of health, wellbeing, sport and physical education.
