TQUK MENA Education & Training

Education & Training

To keep in line with the UAE’s Teachers Licensing System for 2020, we offer a KHDA approved teaching qualification, the TQUK Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training (RQF).

The Teacher License allows teachers and educational leaders to practice their profession in the education sector and raise the level and quality of education in the UAE.


We will work with your centre and learners to tailor this to meet your individual needs.

To make it a faster and more streamlined journey, we have developed a standard set of materials and assessments that meet the needs of this region. Learners, Trainers and Assessors will have access to our VLE whereby all materials, assessments and much more are available. This has been developed with flexibility and ease in mind to give our centres a seamless and personalised experience.

The TQUK Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training (RQF) is suitable for teachers, trainers and tutors.

It can meet the needs of a range of trainee teachers, including:

Planning and developing schemes of work

Delivering learning sessions

Developing teaching and learning startegies
