Dr Ayoub Kazim, managing director of DIAC and Dubai Knowledge Village revealed, “The study found that the education sector is expected to have a manpower gap of 200,000 by 2015 in the Gulf. The UAE requires more than a quarter of this, around 57,000 educators, and they include teachers and professors.”
The sector needs professors and lecturers in management, accounting and vocational training.
The study’s findings were highlighted on the sidelines of the Gulf Educational Supplies and Solutions Exhibition and Gulf Education Forum that was inaugurated by Humaid Mohammad Obaid Al Qutami, Minister of Education on Tuesday.
