Education

Ras Al Khaimah Education 2013
Like the other emirates in the UAE, Ras Al Khaimah’s development strategy is centred on transitioning to a knowledge-based economy. The government thus places a strong emphasis on both human and social development, with a particular focus on improving education. In 2010 the Education 2020 plan was expanded by the Ministry of Education to include 10 strategic objectives and 50 initiatives to be implemented over the decade, including a focus on improving basic skills in communications, English and maths. Vocational training is another priority area, with an emphasis on skill-specific training driven by recent economic diversification, especially in the tourism sector. The government recognises that to maintain the policy of Emiratisation, new entrants to the workforce must be sufficiently skilled to take up jobs available to them, and the education strategy focuses on achieving this.
