Al Salam sets out a set of Core Competencies for staff and a Learner Profile, which both promote the qualities of Aspiration, Agency, Agility and Altitude.
Teachers in our schools have direct responsibility for the quality of their provision for students. Ultimately, their work is judged by the learning that takes place, the outcomes and qualifications that the students achieve, and the character that students develop.
Al Salam expects all its teachers to contribute wholeheartedly and, before work even begins in the classroom, teachers should reflect international standards by:
conducting themselves as responsible professionals and adults
organising themselves well
providing a role model in terms of punctuality, responsibility, punctuality and demeanour
working well in teams, whether as the leader or as a contributor
adopting a positive mindset that believes that all students can do well and that teaching can always be improved
respecting the students and colleagues at all times
supporting the school management and administration
keeping up to date in their specialisms and in teaching techniques
planning learning activities with clear objectives and desired outcomes in mind
being open in informing parents and in seeking support and feedback from them
