Since the establishment in 2005, IAT was envisioned as a world class integrated educational system of career-based technical education that would produce the scientists, engineers, and technicians needed for the UAE to build a knowledge-based economy. IAT’s mission is to promote various programs of study in order to meet the industrial and technical requirements of the UAE, and provide appropriate specializations to cover the industrial and technical requirements for a competent workforce. While career clusters are designed and customized in accordance to local community needs and requirements, enrollment in a particular program is primarily dependent on student interests and academic achievement.
The IAT curriculum is designed to offer standards-based rigorous academic core combined with hands-on cluster based courses. The Curriculum Matrix details the distribution of periods per week for each subject area, each period being 45 minutes with a total of 40 periods per week. The term “Cluster Requirements” under Subjects refers only to the total number of periods designated to career cluster courses.
Mission of the Assessment Department
Enhance student achievement while simultaneously closing all identifiable gaps by providing timely and accurate data about student performance on school-based, system-wide, and standardized assessments.
Our philosophy is to support the learning process and encourage student success. This support is enacted by ensuring that the learning outcomes achieved are the ones assessed. We decline to assess learning outcomes that are never realized albeit intended. Our grading system is a mere measurement of student’s mastery of achieved outcomes. Below is an embellishment on this philosophy…
By and large, assessment at any educational institute serves two key functions. First, it certifies that students have attained the knowledge and competencies identified in the course learning outcomes. In other words, it testifies that internationally recognized standards are met. The successful completion of assessments to an acceptable degree may be used for progression through higher grade levels and even the selection of other clusters. Assessments that are used to measure student performance on the completion of a course are referred to as summative assessments. Secondly, assessments can be used as a valuable tool for teaching and learning...

Our schools are fortunate to be able to take advantage of technology in the form of iPads and iBooks providing a relevant delivery platform which is extremely engaging for the students. The iBooks have been written by the CDU to meet the specific demands of the curriculum and have been customised to meet the English language level of the students.
Schools are committed to a Plan-Do-Review (PDR) process. The most important stakeholders, the students, are involved in this process and are encouraged to add content and to offer suggestions to improve the look and feel of the iBooks, as are teachers. In addition to this, the key attribute of iPads, ubiquitous access, enables teachers to make full use of Web 2.0 technologies. Students are able to improve research, retrieval, collaborative and writing skills as they use their iPads to complete tasks. These skills have been identified as being essential for success in the 21st century.
The easy access to the Internet provides countless opportunities for modelling. Students are able to watch podcasts of professionals in the work place, or explanations about specific topics. This exposure enables learning to be far more meaningful...
The role of the Learning Resource Centers, (LRCs), is to provide students with access to resources and up-to-date information in both print and electronic format. The LRCs are student-centered, dynamic learning hubs, which provide the means to transform the students’ learning experience from a conventional one into an interactive, autonomous, one-to-one learning experience.
To reinforce this vision professional, qualified Librarians are on hand to provide support and assistance to both students and staff. Librarians provide orientation sessions and facilitate information literacy classes both in the LRC and in the classroom taking this opportunity to introduce students to the latest resources, which support the learning and teaching objectives of the curriculum. Information Literacy sessions provide students with opportunities to develop their critical thinking skills, conduct research, respect...
