Dubai parents want future-ready skills to be taught in schools, survey reveals

The skills that parents are looking to be taught include adaptability which came out on tops, followed by problem-solving and teamwork 

Dubai, May 19, 2022: Key findings from a recent survey has revealed that Dubai parents want schools to be teaching future-ready skills as part of the curriculum. 

The survey was commissioned by the Royal Grammar School Guildford Dubai.

More than 70% of parents in the UAE who took part in the survey stated that the number one thing they worry about when it comes to their children’s education is how well the school is preparing them for the future. 

71.6% of parents who took part said they believe it’s more important than ever that their children are taught future-ready skills since the pandemic. 

The survey also revealed that the future-ready skills that parents are looking to be taught include adaptability which came out on top with 52.40% votes, followed by problem-solving (46.8%) and teamwork (46.4%). 

According to the survey, the subject parents would most like to see as standard on the curriculum to prepare their children for the future is finance management. 52.4% of parents questioned revealed that they’re looking for finance skills to be taught in schools and 51.2% of parents questioned stated that they are looking for artificial intelligence to be taught too. 

Commenting on the findings that parents are keen for finance management to be taught, Clare Turnbull, Principal at the Royal Grammar School Guildford Dubai says, “Now more than ever it is rare that we use physical money, which comes with many positives and negatives for our children. We encourage them to understand the meaning of value, of different ways of earning, saving and spending money.  These early forms of life skills tie in well to the essential entrepreneurial skills that our young people develop in upper key stage 2 and beyond.”
