TEACH-NOW

Teacher Preparation
Certificate Program

Alrajhi Education is partnered with TEACH-NOW Graduate School of Education based in Washington DC. TEACH-NOW offers the only accredited online Teacher Preparation Program that leads to a US Teaching License and subsequently a Teacher Permit in Dubai. Our partnership with TEACH-NOW creates opportunities for young and aspiring teachers to earn an internationally recognized and licensed qualification, and substantially improve their career prospects as a licensed teacher.

The program’s project/activity-based, collaborative learning model means candidate learning occurs synchronously, in mandatory virtual class sessions with 10 to 15 candidates in the learning cohort and the instructor, and asynchronously, outside of the scheduled virtual classes.
