Previous to working in the UAE, my previous experience was in business in Australia. Pursuing a Master's Degree in Education has highlighted the need for developing teaching skills and developing innovative TCEP's to augment professional development. My association with the IVD is now approaching its fourth year. For the first year at The Institute I taught English to prepare the students for the Diploma, an 18 month course. Eventually, the teaching load was expanded to teaching students a number of subjects such as accounting, financial accounting, marketing, business communication, internet marketing, international business, human resource and business ethics. This has also been extended to colleagues through workshops, all using English as the language of instruction. My colleagues, like myself, have not come from an educational background, the workshops on various aspects of education to help people develop their teaching techniques.There are a number of theories that can be considered for the current TCEP. However, this research will focus on the identification of existing competencies, particularly in enhancing previous learning and experience as a business professional to teaching business. In a similar study developed by Lawless and Pellegrino (2007), they point out that the integration of skills from previous disciplines requires the adjustment of perspectives: this implies that though expertise may be achieved in the practice of a discipline, this level of competency cannot be assumed when one's function is changed such as in the case of becoming a teacher. Similarly, Johnson and Fargo (2010) the transformative capacity for professional development can be directly associated with student achievement. This suggests that the TCEP is not just critical to improving classroom effectiveness but actual perspectives about education, continuing professional development as well as the social role of education.
