Eight schools have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Oxford University Press Pakistan based on which the latter will supply a wide range of educational solutions, tailored to each school’s needs and designed to support its educational mission, as part of the schools’ participation in Oxford Quality. Seven of these schools are in Karachi: Hamdard Public School (Main Campus), Habib Public School (Primary Section), Happy Home School (Shaheed-e-Millat Rd.), The Educators (Darus Salam Campus), Lightstone School System, APEX School, and Civil Aviation Authority School (Campus 2); and one in Larkana: SZABIST School.
Oxford Quality is an agreement between Oxford University Press (OUP) and selected schools worldwide who share a commitment to excellence in education.
During a period of one year, each school will work in collaboration with OUP to ensure the continued development of the school in the areas of teaching materials, assessment provision, and professional development for teachers.
OUP is recognized as a global leader in the publishing of quality educational and teaching materials and respected around the world for its dictionaries. As a department of the University of Oxford, OUP furthers the University’s objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education by publishing worldwide.
On entering the agreement, each of the eight schools will not only benefit from the use of high quality products, services, and teaching materials but will also receive an exclusive level of consultancy and support from OUP Pakistan for school assessment and creating and upgrading the school library.
As part of Oxford Quality, these schoolswill also be integrating new teacher training and professional development services from OUP for its teachers, including the Oxford Teacher’s Academy—a training programme for teachers that is certified by the Oxford University.Close
