AlHosn University signs deal with Tamkeen
Abu Dhabi, July 19, 2011
Abu Dhabi-based AlHosn University's training and continuing education centre has signed a cooperation agreement with Tamkeen Consulting and Training.
Under the terms of the agreement, the two parties will collaborate efforts and exchange expertise in managerial and occupational sectors (engineering, computer technology, tourism and hospitality, and education and healthcare) as well as other training programmes that target both local and regional customers.
The agreement also covers the sharing and enhancing of training courseware, training experience, and provision of training and consultancy services. Dr Hassan Al Samarrai, AlHosn University director of Training and Continuing Education Centre, and Sanaa Saad, operations manager of Tamkeen, signed the agreement in the presence of Ahmed Al Falahi, secretary general of Tamkeen, Mohammed Al Anzi, managing director of Tamkeen, and staff members from both institutions.
After signing the agreement, the two parties proceeded to discuss AlHosn University’s academic programmes and training courses that can be offered inside and outside the university premises. The Tamkeen delegation also commended AlHosn University for its high-level education standards.
“The partnership with Tamkeen Consulting and Training provides new opportunities to further enhance our ability to cater to a much wider range of training and academic needs of learners. This agreement manifests AlHosn University’s strong commitment to pursue strategic alliances with like-minded institutions and to expand its ability to design and implement efficient and competitive training and academic programmes,” said Dr Al Samarrai.
Al Anzi said: “We are delighted to sign an agreement with AlHosn University, which is emerging as one of the most prestigious universities in Abu Dhabi. AlHosn has been offering top-notch academic and training programmes and we are looking forward to collaborating with our new partners from the university to develop and implement high-quality and authentic training programmes that address existing and emerging needs of learners in the UAE and across the region.”
Through the agreement, AlHosn University seeks to extend its reach across new sectors some of which are currently being served by Tamkeen. The partnership will expand the university’s existing team of trainers and consulting experts and enable AlHosn to implement larger-scale training programmes. AlHosn University also aims to design joint programmes with Tamkeen to address the needs of specific groups of learners.
Tamkeen will benefit from the agreement by expanding its trainer database, specifically adding skill and education advantages as it will have access to AlHosn’s exclusive resources such as its team of PhD holders. Tamkeen will also be seeking to offer CEC certification programmes, and work with the university in areas such as training course design, training courseware design and development, as well as system design and implementation for both performance and learning management.-TradeArabia News Service
