I won a full scholarship to Cambridge Summer Programs for Film and Acting this year, thanks to the guidance of my team and counselors who showed me this opportunity and guided me through the intense application process! My family will be able to send me to this 2019 summer program in the UK because if I didn’t earn a scholarship we couldn’t afford it! Thanks for this award and opportunity, as now I am set on a path for my Uni admissions as a senior applicant for the fall – and we have a lot of work to do but a comprehensive plan already!
Anoushka, GEMS Modern Academy Dubai
As an Elite Admissions student in grade 12, I am beyond pleased with my acceptances into several Ivy League universities – with scholarships! Thank you to MyPathToUni and the GEMS UniConnect Team with ScorePlusm, as I could not have competed the full year of applications to the US and UK without your guidance! My school counselor is thrilled with this support, too, as your kind professionalism helped guide her through the support she needed to get accepted. Thank you, again and again, for my lifelong dream is to study at an Ivy League school!
Thanks to the Oliv Team I have earned a full-time paid internship with a UAE Engineering firm to explore my undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering in Canada. I almost had to attend a Foundation Program but after my internship and tutoring support from MyPathToUni over the summer, too, I am at a undergrad uni that I love. My parents are beyond happy to have had this support – as I am now on track again after my A levels to gain real-world career experience to help me determine where I go next after my undergraduate and internship experiences.
Principal/CEO GEMS Winchester School – Fujairah
The TELLAL trainers were very approachable and helpful throughout the session. They were open to questions and willing to support in every way. The strategies used were very applicable for us in the classroom as well as our plans to train other adults in our specialist areas
Train the Trainer participant
Different activities were incorporated in the workshop which gave us a clear insight and understanding of the topics and concepts. The sharing of information between different participants helped us look at different perspectives and assisted my learning. There was plenty of opportunity to share ideas and ask questions and I especially enjoyed gaining an understanding of the 6 leadership types, reflecting on what type of leader I am and the leadership skills I would like to develop.
Teacher Leaders Programme participant
Confident and knowledgeable presenters. Engaging and interactive sessions with group facilitated learning. Insightful to see assessments used for Principals and to receive and understand the type of KHDA interview questions. The RACI matrix provides a clear framework when looking at accountability within schools. Getting interview feedback from respected leaders in the sector was the added bonus.
Executive Leaders Programme participant
I enjoyed the opportunity to discuss the coaching model. The discussion points generated were engaging and I liked the conversations that came out of them. They made me think and reflect. Lots of practical application throughout the course and I found it useful to practice real life coaching conversations but also the chance to write up actions plans for me to apply.
