How to obtain a professional license
A licence can be gained by successfully completing a series of exams. These exams will consist of two parts: one will test your knowledge of specific subject matter, and the other will test your ability to teach various subjects. In the event that the examination is not successfully completed, the instructor will be required to enrol in a training programme that is designed to qualify him and develop his qualifications in accordance with the demands he aspires to in order to achieve the desired results. The training period lasts for a variable amount of time, according by the requirements of the instructor, and is then followed by a retest.
In an effort to achieve the highest possible levels of education that are both specialised and professional, the educational cadre licencing system was put into place. This decision was made on the basis of the UAE's ambition for excellence and the development of the knowledge industry.

This will make it easier for the Ministry of Education to invite teachers who are already enrolled in the system to take the licence exams that would allow them to work as teachers in the Emirates.
