Partnering with Oman's Ministry of Education
The Ministry of Education wanted to improve the country’s performance in Science and Mathematics – the aim was that students would be taught in Arabic with curriculum materials reflecting the Omani context.
A partnership across Education Reform and other University of Cambridge departments is currently collaborating to deliver a programme of support that helps to achieve these goals.
We are contextualising resources and translating them into Arabic, as well as providing continuing professional development on how to effectively use the resources in the classroom
- Cambridge Assessment International Education is providing test specifications and sample tests, as well as training the Ministry teams to develop valid and reliable assessments
- The Faculty of Education is conducting monitoring and evaluation, assessing the impact of resources before and after the reform
