18 May 2017

The Abu Dhabi Education Council (ADEC), the education authority for Abu Dhabi, has invited companies to submit proposal for developing vacant lands for the purpose of constructing and operating private schools in Al Ain.

The two schools which are to be developed in Al Hili area will have British curriculum while the school in Al Dhaher area will have American curriculum, according to the invite.

Documents can be collected for a non-refundable fee of 10,000 dirhams ($2,725) until 31 May, 2017. The bidders are required to furnish a bid bond of 100,000 dirhams ($27,248).

The final submission date is 2 July, 2017.

In March 2016, ADEC’s Private Schools and Quality Assurance Sector Executive Director Hamad Al Dhaheri said in a press statement that to meet increasing demand, the private sector has invested more than 3.4 billion dirhams ($926.43 million) to build 56 schools accommodating 775,000 students.

Work is currently underway to build 17 new schools that are expected to become operational in the next two years, he said.
