From 2006 until 2009 a team of IE Partners consultants including Amanda Buchan and Tony Read, worked on developing publishing capacity in the Ministry of Education’s Curriculum and Textbook Directorate (GDCT). This included the review of editorial, production, design, illustration and publishing management skills as well as a review of computerised management systems.

Detailed work was also undertaken on an analysis of literacy issues in Arabic and on assessments of progress toward the use of ICT as fundamental learning and teaching tools in a wide variety of curriculum subjects at different levels. Research activities included electronic, DVD, audio, print and other materials availability in order to implement the new student centred curriculum.

In November 2008 Andy Smart and John Aldridge ran a unique two week course for eight teams of GDCT staff, each comprising an author, an editor, a designer and an illustrator. During this course each team worked on the development from scratch of a curriculum related supplementary material.
