    Leadership Through Change with the Ministry of Education of Saudi Arabia

    The School of Education at Oxford Brookes University (OBU) has been contracted by the Ministry of Education of Saudi Arabia to provide a 12-month tailored programme of continuing professional development for qualified Saudi teachers visiting the UK (both primary and secondary). This is a flagship national programme aimed at advancing change in the Saudi education system, drawing on best practice from UK schools. The programme focuses on the development of innovative, creative professional practice through school immersion in partner schools.
