Abu Dhabi- As part of the continuing efforts to provide easier access to key government services, the Abu Dhabi Department of Education and Knowledge (ADEK) has partnered with the Abu Dhabi Smart Solutions and Services Authority (ADSSSA) to launch a new ‘Pre-Registration for School’ service through the TAMM system.

Parents will now be able to access the ‘Pre-Registration for Schools’ service upon completion of their child's birth registration process with the Department of Health in Abu Dhabi. Through ADSSSA's TAMM system, a public school is recommended to the parents based on their registered place of residence. The child will also be assigned a unique student number for ADEK's student information system (eSIS), which will collect all relevant data and send notifications to the parents to confirm the registration with the school name.

Upon reaching the age of enrolment, the eSIS will automatically reserve a slot for the child and send a confirmation message to the parents. However, should there be a change in residence over the four-year period, the TAMM system will detect the new residency area and notify the parents with a new recommend school.

H.E Dr. Youssef Al Sheryani, Undersecretary of ADEK, said that these initiatives will continue to enhance Abu Dhabi's leading efforts in education excellence and promote the emirate’s digital transformation through collaboration among entities. He further explained that these initiatives contribute to achieving global competitiveness in education in keeping pace with the country’s progress and development in various fields.

Dr. Al Sheryani commended the efforts of ADSSSA in keeping pace with the leading trends to provide the best government services and enhance education’s mission to serve the interest of the country and the students, in line with the move to achieve the objectives of the Abu Dhabi Government Accelerator's Program ‘Ghadan 21.’

H.E. Dr. Rauda Al Saadi, Director General of ADSSSA, said that the ‘Pre-registration for Schools’ conforms to the directives of the wise leadership to ensure the quality of life and continued society development. This service is being implemented under TAMM’s integrated journey ‘Get Education’ offering a single platform that will help parents save time and effort as it simplifies the process of enrolling their children to schools and enhances their experience in educational services.

H.E. Al Saadi added that this collaboration is part of several partnerships that have been forged to ensure customer happiness and provide the highest quality of government services. It is part of ADSSSA’s leading role in supporting Abu Dhabi’s digital transformation journey and mandate to lead the government excellence in services.

The ‘Pre-registration for Schools’ service provides UAE parents with the opportunity to enroll their new-borns at any Abu Dhabi public school based on their birth registration. The Authority looks to continue developing and improving the service in the future to include all schools in the emirate.
