Note that Beacon Education no longer exists in Dubai, see the Taaleem information page. This page left here for archive reference.
Beacon Education was a school owner and operator based in Dubai. The name no longer exits as it merged with Taaleem Dubai when the two companies were bought by Madaares, and then Madaares became known as Taaleem, which is the current corporate identity umbrella for what was previously Beacon Education, the old Taleem, and Madaares. Some residents might still refer to Taleem schools as Beacon schools.
2002/2003 - a group of educators in the UAE formed Beacon Education with the intention of providing high quality education services in Dubai and the UAE (and maybe further afield). The focus would be on establishing schools and nurseries with UK, US, and IB curriculums. The group consisted of
Helal Almarri, Dr Mohamed Mustapha Khemira, Waleed Al Mokarrab Al Muhairi, and Ziad Azzam. Mr Ziad Azzam appointed CEO (was previously headmaster at the Chouiefat School in Dubai from 1996-2000, and then based at
McKinsey & Co Middle East).
