Sara Al Hussaini

She has also spent eight years of her career in the training and learning development of police officers as part of her role at Abu Dhabi Police. She started her professional career in 2002 teaching English as a second language, improving curriculum and teaching methods to support the students achieve their learning outcomes.
Sara has received appreciation awards for her contributions to delivering successful training journeys and for building efficient international partnerships with government entities.
Sara’s passion is to make a change in the world by bridging different cultures to collaborate together to achieve a mutual goal, which is to support nations to transform their learning systems and adapt to the new digital era.
