Professional Educator Diploma Programs
The Professional Educator Diploma (PED) program is for educators, school owners, government supervisors and NGO educators who wish to improve themselves and their schools through studies focused on educational leadership and the education of early and adolescent learners. Participants also include those who wish to change careers and teach using their professional degree. The program is for those educators who want to make a difference in the educational system in Egypt. The diversity of students in the class allows for rich discussion and discoveries. Many educational reform concerns and initiatives are similar in private and public schools. The sharing of information and collaboration among participants is a big step to future sustained school improvement. Diversity is a strength of the program.
