Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) is sending 30 of its Emirati staff to the University of Dubai for a leadership training programme.

The training forms part of DEWA’s Emerging Leaders Development Programme, and supports its strategy to support talented nationals and prepare ‘third tier’ leaders to take on new responsibilities.

“To demonstrate our commitment to equip, develop, and prepare third tier national leaders at DEWA, we have signed this MoU with the University of Dubai, which has been chosen as a national university that offers highly-effective programmes in this area,” said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA.

“The different programmes and training courses DEWA offers to its staff for all grades supports the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to support people and develop their skills. His Highness has noted that government employees are the growth engines of Dubai’s growth, fuelling the Emirate’s development,” said Al Tayer.

The University of Dubai will focus on developing middle management to prepare them to undertake leadership roles in DEWA in the coming years.

The University of Dubai’s Centre for Executive Development will offer DEWA’s staff the British Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM) Level 2 qualification, which has been modified to provide the best results for participants, and meet the specific needs of DEWA’s future leaders.
