QRTA was among 32 other educator preparation providers (EPPs) to receive recognition for its leadership and commitment to improving and strengthening P–12 education.

The coveted award is reserved for CAEP-accredited EPPs that have met the council’s highest standards.

Commenting on the academy’s latest accomplishment, QRTA CEO Osama Obeidat said: “we are honored to have received the 2022 Frank Murray Leadership Recognition for Continuous Improvement, which acknowledges our collective efforts that culminated with receiving international academic accreditation last year for our Teacher Education Professional Diploma from CAEP.”

“This award not only proves that our diploma is highly effective in training teachers, but also celebrates QRTA’s hard work, dedication, and unwavering commitment to excellence,” he added.

CAEP Board Chair Yuhang Rong explained that “the EPPs that CAEP is recognizing are committed to continuous improvement and preparing their students to succeed in a diverse range of classrooms after they graduate.”

“CAEP accreditation is a sign of commitment to quality through purposeful use of evidence. The Murray Leadership Recognition recipients should be proud of their accomplishments,” he said.

Rong also stated that Frank Murray, the founding president of the Teacher Education Accreditation Council and award’s namesake, was “passionate about education preparation, a prominent leader in our profession, and an advocate for evidence to improve education”.

In December 2021, QRTA became the first educational organization in Jordan to be fully accredited by CAEP for seven years, the longest accreditation period granted by the council.

QRTA also became the third educational organization in the Middle East to acquire CAEP accreditation, making Jordan the second country in the region to receive recognition.

Accordingly, CAEP accreditation positioned QRTA alongside many international institutions working steadfastly in the field of teacher training.

Established in 2009, and in line with Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah’s vision, QRTA is a non-profit organization committed to supporting and empowering educators with the skills needed to nurture and lead future generations.

QRTA offers innovative and evidence-based professional development programs informed by international best practices and the latest research in the field.

Since its inception, QRTA has provided professional learning opportunities for teachers and school leaders, with an outreach of over 100,000 professional development opportunities across its various programs.
