Establishment of new vocational secondary schools in the UAE

The Executive Council of Abu Dhabi approved the establishment of a number of vocational secondary schools for males and females throughout the country in line with the government’s plans and vision to consolidate the labour market with national technical skills.

According to the Executive Council, these schools aim to promote a high standard of vocational training and to leverage national capabilities in alignment with academic specializations.

The technical secondary schools typically include a number of specialisations which are aligned with current and anticipated labor market needs, and they provide opportunities for students to subsequently pursue careers in disciplines such as mechanical engineering, electronic engineering, aircraft overhaul, supply chain management, logistics, finance and accounting.

There are currently four technical secondary schools across the UAE, one each in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain, Ras Al Khaimah and Al Fujairah. Five more will be built during the current year in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain, Al Mirfaa and Ajman. The total number of students enrolled will increase to 2000.

The Abu Dhabi Centre for Technical and Vocational Education and Training is responsible for the development of the technical education sector in Abu Dhabi by laying out the policies and standards that regulate education within occupational and technical institutions.
