Al Futtaim Education Foundation (AFEF) provides strategic guidance for its schools and supports School Boards and School Leadership Teams in achieving their institutional missions. With a clear vision for education in the emirate of Dubai and within the UAE, the Foundation links the schools with Al-Futtaim businesses in ways that optimise the learning experience for students at AFEF schools.
AFEF contributes to its schools in a number of areas, as follows:
- Academic Excellence: AFEF capitalises on links within the community and beyond to bring the schools expertise from distinguished educationalists and thought leaders in the field, be that through consultancy, specialist training and development events or through collaborations. In addition, AFEF supports initiatives in education that aim to further curricular and co-curricular provision. The Foundation is responsible for the overall quality assurance of its schools.
- Operational Excellence: AFEF, through its links with Al-Futtaim businesses, provides its schools with administrative assistance in procurement, HR, facilities, finance and other areas of school operation, as required. The Foundation, through its not-for-profit model, funds school facility expansion and upgrade in ways that ensure keeping up with the best educational practice in learning environment and learning space design.
- Sponsorships and Synergies: AFEF offers sponsorships of school-based initiatives and activities that can further and/or enrich the learning experience of school students, contribute positively to the community, or break new educational grounds in terms of innovation and creativity.
