Collaboration with Kumon and Jodco on pioneering Maths

Aldar Academies has shown again why it’s among the leaders of private education in Abu Dhabi by signing an agreement with education organisation Kumon (Kumon Institute of Education, ltd) to pilot its renowned maths programme, in collaboration with JODCO (Japan Oil Development Co).
Nilay Ozral, Aldar Academies CEO, was joined by Kumon delegate Katsuyuki Inoue, Kumon Executive Officer and Yuzo Sengoku, JODCO Director and General Manager, to confirm the trial, which will be led by the education providers’ Al Mamoura Academy. Following a successful pilot, Aldar Academies will look to roll the maths programme out across its other five primary schools in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain. 
With Aldar Academies taking responsibility for student development and Kumon supplying the pioneering methodology, JODCO’s role will be to support the implementation of the programme within schools. The Japanese corporation is responsible for connecting Kumon to the market through its past education-focused CSR initiatives in the UAE.
The pilot will support the school’s teaching of mathematics using the ‘Kumon Method’, which sees students complete worksheets on a daily basis in school. Working at their own pace, students master each concept before progressing to more advanced tasks, and learn life skills of critical thinking and self-discipline alongside technical maths knowledge. Inventive yet effective, the programme reinforces Aldar Academies’ commitment to raising the standard of education in the capital by investing in pioneering methods and technologies.
“As a leader for education in Abu Dhabi, one important aim of ours is to raise the standards of education in the capital,” commented Ms Ozral. “Yet the Aldar Academies difference comes from the love of learning we hope to inspire in students. We’re confident that the Kumon pilot programme will help us to achieve both of these important ambitions.”
“We’re thrilled to partner with Aldar Academies and bring the Kumon Method to even more schools in the UAE.” Commented Mr Inoue.
“Rapid progress is the aim of the nation’s leadership, but this is only possible when human knowledge grows at the same pace. Our maths programme meets this need by advancing the development of young minds in this important subject.”
