The Education and Training Evaluation Commission (ETEC) and the Arab League Educational, Cultural and Scientific Organization (ALECSO) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to support Arabic language projects. The MoU comes as an extension of the Saudi role in supporting ALECSO work by increasing the partnerships and projects between the kingdom and the organization.
The MoU aims to boost cooperation for the development of guiding criteria for Arabic language curricula in education, create well-crafted Arabic language programs and testing reference, prepare guides for distance teaching of the Arabic language, as well as holding training programs, working sessions and capacity-building programs and seminars for experts and specialists, and exchanging joint research.
Mohamed Ould Amar, director-general of ALECSO, hailed the pioneering experience of ETEC, which achieved great milestones in training, evaluating, and setting reference tests in Arabic language, noting that the organization is planning an Arabic language reference system. Ould Amar added that within the framework of the partnership, ALECSO will work to benefit from ETEC more comprehensively to enhance potentials in Arab countries, and keep promoting cooperation in various fields.
ALECSO focuses its efforts on upgrading the Arab culture by developing its work fields at the regional and national levels, and enhancing the joint coordination among its member states. ETEC seeks to be a high-influence Saudi model of quality in education and training, a global pioneer, and a contributor to achieving national development and economic growth.
