The Ministry of Education is gearing up for the new academic year with a comprehensive plan involving various sectors, including public and private education, educational facilities, research, curricula, finances, administration, and development. Six committees from these sectors have been working together to organize programs and ensure a smooth start to the upcoming academic year. The ministry’s focus is on providing a seamless educational experience for students.
Each committee, led by the respective sector’s Assistant Undersecretary, consists of department directors and selected sector employees. These committees are responsible for planning, monitoring, and preparing for the commencement of the academic year.
The Educational Facilities and Planning Sector Committee has been particularly attentive to maintenance work in operating schools. Weekly reports on maintenance progress and completion rates have been submitted to guarantee the readiness of facilities for the new academic year. The Department of Supplies and Stores has successfully completed inventories for academic stages, and the Department of Curriculum has received necessary inventories.
In a separate development, the Ministry of Higher Education emphasized the significance of nurturing human capital as a cornerstone of the country’s development. Acting Undersecretary Lamia Al-Mulhim stated that the ministry’s efforts align with the directives of the Minister of Electricity, Water, and Renewable Energy, as well as the Acting Minister of Education, Dr. Jassim Al-Ustad. These efforts aim to bolster Kuwait’s academic competitiveness and enhance services for citizens and residents alike.
Al-Mulhim further elaborated, “Recently, the Minister issued a decision allowing Kuwaiti students to register and enroll in the bachelor’s program in human medicine at prestigious institutions such as Mohammed Bin Rashid University of Medicine and Health Sciences in Dubai, Gulf Medical University in Ajman, and Khalifa University in Abu Dhabi. This initiative expands opportunities for students pursuing studies in human medicine.” She affirmed the ministry’s commitment to providing medical seats in various countries for the current academic year, 2024-2023.
The Ministry of Education’s dedication to strategic planning and collaboration underscores its commitment to delivering quality education and contributing to the country’s progress. The upcoming academic year promises to be a time of growth and development for students across Kuwait.
