Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Foundation for Distinguished Academic Performance unveils the EFQM-Hamdan Education Model

Everybody wants the best education for their children- it’s a universal truth.

But when headteachers, governors, ministries and parents want to improve the performance of their school, educational institution or website, where do they start?

In collaboration with Hamdan Foundation, EFQM’s internationally recognized model for achieving outstanding performance and managing change has recently been tailored specifically for schools and educational institution.

It is now available to buy on the EFQM shop.

The EFQM-Hamdan Education model is designed to help school and educational leaders define their objectives and then set out a management agenda to improve their school or educational institution.

The model has ‘the best education possible’ at its heart, but recognizes the complexities of working with many different stakeholders- from parents to government departments.

It also acknowledges the subtle relationships between the ambitions, actions and outcomes of each school or educational institutions, and recognizes that each school has its own character, culture and purpose.

The EFQM-Hamdan Education model is a partnership which draws on the expertise of EFQM and Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum Foundation for Distinguished Academic Performance, in helping educational institutions to achieve constant improvement. 

“We are delighted to partner with the Hamdan Foundation to produce the EFQM-Hamdan Education model,” said Russell Longmuir Chief Executive Officer at EFQM. “The Foundation is already well recognized for delivering the very best support to schools, and we are very pleased to be able to help take their good work to the next level.” 

“Hamdan Foundation has been supporting the education in the region for the past 23 years”, said Dr. Jamal Al Muhairi, Deputy Chairman of the Board of Trustees and Secretary-General of the Foundation. “We are very enthusiastic about the partnership with EFQM and we are sure that this partnership will support the education system around the world”. “Schools across the Middle East and beyond are already using the EFQM-Hamdan Education model to identify their strengths and areas for improvement. Now that the model is available on our website we are confident that thousands more students will benefit as their schools continue to improve.”
