Etisalat launches new Emiratisation centre
Abu Dhabi, March 25, 2013
UAE-based Etisalat Academy has launched its 'Kawadir Nationalization Centre' aimed at training and developing the skills of local workforce to help them take over prominent positions across organisations in the country.
One of the largest single-source providers of training and development solutions in the Middle East, Etisalat Academy said Kawadir will provide a range of programs focusing on comprehensive assessment solutions for technical capabilities and behavioral skills, preparation and qualification programs for Emiratis; specifically tailored to fit their abilities and preferences.
The launch of the centre supports the recently announced government initiative ‘Absher’ which enables UAE nationals to be part of the private sector workforce, said a senior official.
Dr Ali Al-Qayedi, the acting general manager, Etisalat Academy, said: “Since the establishment of Etisalat Academy, thousands of UAE nationals have been trained and developed to contribute towards quality personnel in the government and private sectors. Many of these trainees have reached executive leadership positions in their organizations.”
“The Kawadir Nationalization Centre will extend these efforts by providing training and development to Emiratis. The programs and development solutions targeted at locals will be under the umbrella of ‘Kawadir’. They have been conceptualized through partnerships with globally recognised players in the field of learning and development.”
According to him, the integrated training programs for Emiratis have been developed to focus on both technical and soft skills.
"This will improve their skills in areas such as: telecom, engineering, IT and finance as well as help them to enhance their communication, sales, marketing, customer services and leadership skills," he stated.
The centre will be a platform for potential candidates to find out opportunities in both public and private sectors. To enable Emiratis to learn and upgrade their abilities the centre will also arrange industry level conferences and exhibitions that support Nationalization, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
