Aims of DPSG

The Dubai Private Schools Group (DPSG), a business group representing private schools in Dubai, was formed to support the local private education sector by enhancing the overall quality of education and encouraging growth.

Membership to the group is open to all private schools in Dubai. DPSG currently has 30 members representing over 40 per cent of the total private student population in Dubai schools.

DPSG is instituted in line with the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President & Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, to establish the city as a premier global knowledge economy hub. Through the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry DCCI, the Group will work closely with the Dubai Government to make the city a sought-after global education destination. The Group exists to identify key issues and interface with relevant agencies for policy support to further promote private education.

DPSG will identify and encourage best practices among schools and provide networking opportunities for facilitating information exchange. DPSG aims to build closer relationships with private schools and government schools, and work towards strengthening development strategies and education planning for private sector education.

Other projected goals of DPSG include introducing programs that help curriculum design and teacher training; and promoting socially relevant projects with a special emphasis on sustainable development and health education.
