Abu Dhabi Education Council (ADEC) seeks to develop educational institutions in the emirate of Abu Dhabi, implement innovative educational policies, create plans and programs that improve education, and support educational institutions and staff to advance national development in accordance with the highest international standards.
Founded in 2005, ADEC is responsible primarily for the management and administration of the emirate’s public schools. Higher education in the emirate also falls under ADEC’s authority. Additionally, ADEC issues licenses, monitors, and inspects the emirate’s various private schools. Since 2009, ADEC has implemented a project that it calls the New School Model, to improve teaching standards in the emirate by increasing the quality of teaching, curriculum, and administration.
“Our idea was that it’s the quality of deliverables that makes the implementation process easier and accelerates time to value. Oracle features a cutting-edge procurement cycle with strong reporting tools that suit the education industry in this part of the world. We chose Oracle because it is a robust partner offering what we need,” said Mohammed Younes, ICT division manager, ADEC.
