What we do

MENA regional office

From our office in Dubai, we co-ordinate much of our transformational work across the Middle East and North Africa. We have been continuously working in the region for more than 30 years and our team of expert Arabic- and English-speaking education and programme manager specialists work closely with government agencies.


We work alongside ministries of education and government agencies to help to make ambitious educational initiatives a reality. From helping to build inspection frameworks from scratch to improving teaching and learning through quality professional development for teachers and school leaders, Education Development Trust has been at the forefront of change in the Middle East.

We are also known in the region for our high quality rapid response technical assistance. We deploy specialist educational consultants to countries in need such as Syria, Libya and Iran, co-ordinated from our head office in Reading in the UK.
