Dubai, Aug 17, 2021: UAE-based GEMS Education is all set to welcome 13,000 new teachers from across the globe to join their staff for the new academic year 2021-2022. 

According to the announcement by the group, GEMS will have 7,000 high quality teachers  for  educating more than 120,000 students in total who will join 43 schools in the UAE.

“At GEMS Education, the start of a new term is always an exhilarating time and this (coming) term is especially charged with anticipation and excitement as our new staff and students from around the world join the growing GEMS family,” said Dino Varkey, Chief Executive Officer of GEMS Education, in the announcement. 

“We have invested substantially in upgrading school facilities during the summer break to build on our world-class level of physical and digital provision across our schools. This summer we’ve focused on our through-school provisions ensuring that our offering from nursery to post-16 is even richer at every stage,” Dino Varkey added. 

The school is preparing for its annual induction event, GEMS Awareness Day, which is happening on August 26 where new teachers will hear from GEMS’ senior leadership team and educationalists to learn more about the group’s core values and achievements. 

Elmarie Venter, Chief Operations Officer at GEMS Education, said: “We have achieved an impressive rate of 98.6% of eligible staff across all GEMS schools being vaccinated. We will ensure that our 1,300 new teachers will have received their vaccines to further support our mission to ensure all our schools are as safe as possible.”
