Following 10 years of successfully running the UK Boarding School Exhibition in Dubai and the Middle East, Anderson Education (formally Sue Anderson Consulting) is pleased to announce their first International Boarding School Exhibition on 14th & 15th November 2014 at the Hilton Jumeirah Resort, JBR, featuring 27 schools from the US, Canada, Switzerland, UK, Jordan and Bahrain.
Sue Anderson and her team of education consultants will be on hand to offer free guidance and impartial advice to all parents living in the UAE and the wider Gulf region who would be interested to know “what to look for” when selecting a boarding school for their child. The team will help parents identify schools that meet the individual needs of their child. Alongside this families will be able to meet the heads and representatives from each school and learn about their academic excellence, sports, drama, music, art, and general boarding life.
Preparation and planning is the key to ensuring a successful boarding school placement. With access to the internet and the huge amount of choice available families are often overwhelmed and confused to begin with. Shortlisting and visiting three to four schools is a key factor in selecting the right school. With their years of experience Anderson Education has the expert knowledge to facilitate this and make the whole process easier. Read more

Disaster and natural calamities are something that we can never predict. No matter where we are, we are not exempted from experiencing this kind of trial in life. A community-based approach to disaster managements is intended to reduce this vulnerability by involving communities as active and engaged components in a disaster management program. For that, Monarch Learning & Development Centre are hosting the first IDRN (International Disaster Response Network) training in the UAE.
The purpose of the International Disaster Response Network (IDRN) is to cultivate community based disaster preparedness, response and management; and to create local, self-sustainable, and functional disaster response groups that can then leverage the strengths of the International Disaster Response Network.
