Dr. Khaled AlbakerDirector, Directorate of Government Schools Reviews
Education & Training Quality Authority, Bahrain
Since 2005, education in the Kingdom of Bahrain has undergone major reforms as part of the National Education Reform Project to achieve the goals of Bahrain’s Economic Vision 2030. The Education & Training Quality Authority (BQA) was created by a Royal Decree as an independent entity established for ensuring quality in education and training in Bahrain. In May 2017, the Directorate of Government Schools Reviews, under the umbrella of BQA completed review of 124 schools out of 208. After the completion of each review, the school is provided with key strengths and areas for improvements and recommendations to support further progress.
This session will shed light on the nature of school buildings in the Kingdom of Bahrain, while focusing on adequacy for learning, security and safety issues, and effective use of the buildings and facilities from a quality assurance perspective.
