UK: Clyde & Co Hosts Second Education Roundtable Dinner
Last Updated: 7 July 2015

On 9 June 2015 Clyde & Co hosted its second UAE based education roundtable dinner, at the Ritz Carlton, Abu Dhabi. This roundtable dinner brought key stakeholders in the education sector together and follows our successful roundtable dinner held in Dubai on 11 February.

A broad mix of investors, operators (global, regional and local), consultants and head teachers considered a number of topical issues facing the K-12 education sector in Abu Dhabi. The agenda included:

  • Regulatory developments
  • Staffing issues such as recruitment and retention of staff and use of supply teachers
  • Delivery of Arabic and Islamic studies programmes
  • SEN provision

These topics were discussed in an open forum which produced a lively and engaging debate between all the stakeholders, moderated by Ross Barfoot, Partner and Head of Clyde & Co's Education practice. Key members of Clyde & Co's education team were also in attendance to contribute to the debate.

The discussion on the evening proved invaluable for those attending and was an opportunity to share experiences with others and compare approaches to common challenges. Ross Barfoot noted that "the evening highlights that Clyde & Co are thought leaders in the regional education sector and can add real value to our education clients".

Following on from the success of both the Abu Dhabi and Dubai education roundtable dinners, we look forward to hosting another roundtable event in Doha in the near future.
