When the BSME CPD Programme began in earnest, in 2011, we had only half a dozen schools officially listed as ‘host schools’. To date, thirty-five schools have already hosted for us and we now have forty-seven schools (approximately 65% of the total membership!) registered as willing hosts. That is a fantastic statistic and a real testament to the credibility of the the rapidly growing CPD Programme.
Such keen support is not only much appreciated, it is also essential to the success of the programme. Without it, the BSME CPD Programme simply could not run in the manner in which it does currently. Our sincere thanks go to all our host schools across the region.
To claim host school free places, you will need to fill in the Host School Free Place form. Please click on the link below to download the form.
Please email this form to Sam via firstname.lastname@example.org before the course booking deadline. Please DO NOT register your free places online - all delegates registered online will be charged. Should host schools wish to book any additional (chargeable) places, they should do so on-line, in the ‘Programmes and Courses’ Section of the CPD area.

Latifa School for Girls was established in 1982 by H.H. Sheikh Maktoum Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, former Ruler of Dubai, under the aegis of the Government of Dubai. From its inception, a key goal of the school has been to incorporate the best of British educational practice within a curriculum that promotes UAE values and traditions, alongside global awareness. To this end a British curriculum, modified to suit the cultural context and individual needs of students, is blended with Arabic and Islamic Studies, in line with UAE Ministry curriculum. Students sit GCSE, AS and A level examinations, as well as Ministry-accepted Arabic and Islamic studies examinations. All students leave Latifa School bilingual. The Headmistress and most of the staff are British, with an Arabic and Islamic Studies Department staffed by well-qualified Arab nationals.
Latifa is a through-school for girls between the ages of 3½ and 18, occupying two adjacent sites. Almost all students are UAE nationals and the intake is two-form and mixed ability. The intake is largely static with most students joining the school in Foundation School and continuing through to Year 12 or 13. In line with local government schools, most students leave Latifa at the end of Year 12 and go on to a 4-year American-style University course, primarily in the UAE, but also in the USA. A small number of students each year stay on to complete A Levels in Year 13, followed by university study in UK, USA, Canada or Australia. Whilst the School has placed students in top UK and USA universities, it also educates those with learning difficulties and is committed to providing a first-class education to all its students, whatever their abilities. Learning Support is provided where needed and an alternative curriculum is offered where this is in the student’s best interests.
