About Qudwa

Qudwa is a global education platform for professional development and knowledge-sharing from experts around the world that seeks to shape the future of education and its impact across different sectors. Qudwa sees teachers as the change agents of the UAE’s education system and draws on their expertise to spur innovation, creativity, and collaboration.

Organized by the Education Affairs Office of the Crown Prince Court of Abu Dhabi, Qudwa is held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces.

Connecting teachers with decision-makers, the platform facilitates important discussions on educational practices that will have the greatest positive impact on students in the UAE.

Qudwa is an important part of the UAE’s forward-thinking, multicultural educational environment, and positions the UAE as a global leader in education as it focuses on advancing global competence skills and practices in the classroom.


The agenda for Qudwa-PISA Global Competence Forum 2022 will demonstrate the importance of continuing to align conversations around global competence with innovative teaching methods and classroom practices. It will examine the biggest opportunities ahead, and bring together key stakeholders in several sessions that promote global competence as an essential skill for the 21st century.


Our partners collaborate with Qudwa to address issues affecting teachers in the UAE where transformational impact can only be achieved by working together. Qudwa’s partners join a community of leaders dedicated to developing the insights, initiatives, and actions necessary to nurture a thriving environment for teachers in the UAE.
