Train to Hire
Al Futtaim Education
Foundation, in partnership with Al Futtaim Group Emiratistion Council, aspire
to open doors for young Emiratis onto a career in education. At Al-Futtaim
Group, we believe that Emirati youths should be active agents in shaping the
future of the UAE across all sectors of the economy and human activity. It is
paramount, in our view, that Emirati children being educated at private
international schools can identify Emirati role models at school who act in a
number of capacities, including teaching. To achieve this, we have teamed up
with the University of Birmingham (UoB), the top-rated university in the UAE,
to offer a fully funded Train-to-Hire Programme for selected applicants. The
programme enables Emiratis to pursue a Post-Graduate Certificate in Education –
International (PGCEi) at UoB, train at Deira International School and Universal
American School, rated “Outstanding” and “Very Good,”
respectively, and earn an income as they study and train.
We are looking forward to seeing more Emiratis excel and shine within the international school in particular, and the wider education industry in general.
