Private tutors in the UAE must follow the rules in 2024
In the current year 2024, private tutors in the UAE are required to comply with the established rules in the field of private education. These changes in the rules, introduced since the beginning of the year, are aimed at ensuring a higher standard of education in the country.
Last December was marked by the legalization of private education in the UAE, giving teachers the opportunity to teach classes outside the walls of educational institutions. However, with these new freedoms, there is a need for strict rules that private tutors must follow in order to obtain permission to practice privately.
The introduced "Code of Conduct" consists of seven key rules, violation of which may result in revocation of the permit. One of the restrictions is the prohibition of providing private lessons to students from those schools where a tutor is employed. This decision was included in the Code of Conduct due to concerns about the loss of objectivity and impartiality in the learning process.
The basic principles of professionalism and ethics are also reflected in the new rules. Tutors are required to approach their students in a purely professional manner, avoiding inappropriate actions and physical contact. Confidentiality has also become an important aspect – the dissemination of confidential information about students and their families is now strictly prohibited.
In order to obtain permission for private practice, tutors must provide a number of documents, including a passport, a signed declaration "Code of Conduct", a certificate of non-conviction, the consent of the employer, as well as a certificate of absence of objections from the guardian if the tutor is a minor.
Authorized private tutors now have the opportunity to teach a variety of subjects, including academic, language, business topics, arts, Arabic and Islamic studies, physical education, and more.
These new rules reflect the desire to improve the quality of education in the UAE and create a safe and ethical learning environment. The Ministry's role in approving private tutors is becoming key, ensuring compliance with the high standards and quality of education in the country.
These changes bring benefits for students as well, giving them more choice of subjects and experienced tutors. For the tutors themselves, this opens up new horizons in career development and creates favorable conditions for learning.
The introduction of these new rules is an important stage in the UAE's education sector, which is aimed at creating a stable and responsible education system.
