Waidoun initiative involves private companies training graduates in areas such as building permits and controls
Construction firms Arabtec and Khatib & Alami, alongside UAE entities such as Abela, Unimex, and Al Kabeer Food Products, supported the Dubai Municipality’s training programme, the Waidoun initiative, as part of which private companies and establishments train graduates in areas such as building permits, building control, strategy and corporate excellence, and projects and food safety.
Dubai Municipality honoured the first batch of graduates, comprising UAE nationals, during a graduation ceremony held as part of the training programme.
Dubai Municipality’s director of human resources, Aisha Ahmed Al Hammadi, said: "The UAE is always seeking to qualify and train young graduates. Cooperation with private companies promotes partnerships and exchanges of knowledge and science.
“The municipality encourages them to invest in programmes to support, train and qualify UAE nationals and absorb them into their workforce.”
