Dubai, December 30, 2010
Du, a leading telecom service provider in the UAE, hosted a graduation ceremony at Higher Colleges of Technology in Dubai for the first batch of 150 Emarati employees who completed a development programme under an Emiratisation scheme.
Graduates completed either of the two career paths - Bedaya and Tamayaz offering varying training programmes based on different skill sets, introduced by du in 2010 as part of its efforts to develop Masar, the Emiratisation programme.
“We extend our heartiest congratulations to Masar graduates, and sincerely thank the Higher Colleges of Technology for giving our employees the unique opportunity to benefit from their academic expertise on the training programme,” said Fahad Al Hassawi, chief human resources and shared services officer, du.
“As part of our Emiratisation strategy, we focus on giving careers to local talent and ensure that we equip them with all the necessary tools to build their skills and help them develop in their career when they join us, through the Masar programme.”
“Training is the cornerstone to achieving these goals as it supports and nurtures employees’ abilities, which enables them to do the best job possible. In 2011 we hope to announce more developments in our Emiratisation programme, including the launch of other training courses in cooperation with HCT,” he added.
Dr Tayeb Kamali, vice chancellor, HCT said: “The cooperation between academic organisations and the private sector plays a key role in developing all sectors across the UAE, and we are therefore proud of our fruitful partnership with du.”
“HCT is pleased to be able to provide its expertise to offer the best possible training courses to du employees and equip them with skills across many different sectors,” he concluded.
