Quick brief about the award: Her Majesty Queen Rania Al-Abdullah launched the “Distinguished School Counselor Award”, the third award to fall under the Association’s umbrella, in February 2014. Her Majesty believes deeply in the counselor’s role (with help from students, families, teaching & administrative faculty as well as the society) in developing all aspects of a student’s personality, whether psychological, social, emotional, cognitive or behavioral. This has a direct positive impact on the educational environment, which encourages students to become creative and productive.
Moreover, as a way to contribute to the development of education and the accurate selection of distinguished school counselors, the award’s standards are objective and comply with the standards of similar Arab and international awards set by a group of Jordanian educators so as to respond to the needs of the Jordanian education society. Special correction rules have also been implemented to assess these standards.
The Queen Rania Al Abdullah Distinguished School Counsel or Award is focused on the following pillars:
- Concerned parties (students, families, teaching & administrative faculty and the society)
- Work ethics
