Emiratisation: DEWA trains 197 students during summer 2017

DUBAI — To support and develop young Emirati talent, Dubai Electricity and Water Authority, DEWA, has completed its summer training programme this year for 197 school and university students.

As part of DEWA’s strategy, the course was aimed at promoting Emiratisation, and preparing a generation that acknowledges the importance of professional work in the sustainable development.

The programme included a number of training courses such as ‘Sanad Bag’, where students were trained on how to deal with people of determination, and Team Building, to work as a team. DEWA also organised field trips to its plants where the trainees were introduced to the technologies used in electricity production and water desalination.

“At DEWA, we are committed to developing and supporting Emirati talent to meet the UAE National Agenda, in line with our strategy to prepare young Emiratis to take the lead in the energy and water sectors. As a socially responsible government organisation, DEWA seeks to attract school and university students to train with us in various disciplines that suit them. This year’s summer training programme provided students with practical experiences and skills that will shape their courses of study, and help them in their future careers,” said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of DEWA.
