About TLS and Pedagogy

بسم الله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله

The Teacher Licensing System was launched in line with the vision of the UAE in order to develop a Knowledge Economy and to insure a high quality of education along with the best standards of education. One initiative in this goal is to license all teachers according to the high standards in pedagogy and subject matter specialization.

The teaching license will become a requirement for education professionals in the UAE by the end of 2020. This will contribute in advancing this profession and providing a guarantee of high-performance in the education system, and will equip UAE teachers with a high level of know-how and competence in order to compete globally.

The license is obtained by passing two tests, one in pedagogy and the other being a subject-matter specialization test.

In the case that the exam criteria is not met by the test-taker, the system then introduces training courses that are customized based on the level shown in the exam to achieve the required outcomes. Duration of the training varies based on the needs of the candidate, and retaking the examination is possible upon completing the courses.

  1. I am deeply concerned about the number of spelling and grammatical errors in the sample questions and answers. In some cases, the question is not even clear. How can I have any faith in this test being a reliable reflection of my abilities or knowledge?

    • The main test conducted by the Ministry is a standard one. It will definitely help us to know where we stand. Moreover, whether one likes it or not, it is mandatory for all teachers to get through as it is a part of the TLS.

  2. Assalamu Alaikum

      How are you doing?
      At the moment we have only Pedagogy.
      Islamic as specialization subject is NOT yet included in the TLS.
      We all are waiting for that moment 🙂
      When i get any details, i will let you know or post it on the relevant page inShaaAllah.
      Thanks and Baarakallaahu Feek.

      • Thank You, Mr. Muqeet, Jazak Allah Khair. I have the same concern as Ms. Shama shared. I have cleared the Pedagogy test in October 2019 and waiting for the subject test. I am sure that you will share the details with us.

      • Brother muqeet, i think Islamic specialization exam is available at the moment , is there any study material available for islamic ?

        • Fatima i passed pedagogy 2 years back now also have to prepare for specialization but I nothing is available on TLS site.

          • Sister bilqis im glad to know that you have cleared the pedagogy exam ,Islamic specialization exam is on 5th of march 2022,i was assuming to go for it,but there is non official study material has been given like for other main stream subjects,may allah guide us allahumma ameen .I would like to hear from you if there is any website avaible for speclization exam. or kindly reply

    • I just collected some bits and pieces for pedagogy and don’t have content for subjects-specific. Pedagogy is common for all subject teachers so the material already posted might help you inShaaAllah. Some teachers have pedagogy groups by the way.
      Thank you and All the Best.

  10. Assalamualaikum.
    Are there any updates on the Islamic course and syllabus yet? My work place has made me book the test for 5th March but there’s no syllabus to be found anywhere. Please help if you know anything.

    • Wa alaikumus salam.
      Yes, it is difficult without an specific syllabus.
      It is expected that the test will cover Qur’an, Hadeeth, Sunnah, Fiqh, Tafseer, Islamic History and Tajweed. As the scope of the content is so vast we may expect the syllabus in subsequent exams. For now, there is no allotted syllabus.

  11. please anyone can share ideas how to study for Islamic ? without syllabus exam??????????????. no any guidelines.

      • Assalamualaikum.
        I found a document called the Islamic Study Guide for 2022 on the official TLS website. I can’t attach a link here, but I will try to do it down below. This document is in Arabic. Someone with Arabic knowledge can you please help translate? The exam is very soon.
        Also is the exam going to be in Arabic? There is no English syllabus and this is very concerning.

  12. Hi
    I don’t have any Bed degree but I’m a bcom student t without experience in teaching but I want to apply for teachers position ? What is the procedure can anyone help me ?

  13. The course content is available on TLS website for the Islamic specialized exam but all the details and a model question paper are in Arabic.

  14. Assalam Alaikum warahmatullh
    Did anyone attempt Islamic exam? if yes kindly share questions. Thanks.

    • Wa alaikumus salam wa rahmatullaah.
      It was a disappointment for the teachers of Islamic Education B. As the Question Paper was in Arabic, all non-Arabic speakers were told to leave.
      Hopefully in the next batch, there will be in English language as well.
