Emirates NBD Human Resources Nationalization Unit / Learning & Development (L&D) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on June 12, 2011, with the National Commission for UNESCO, UAE/Associated Schools. In an effort to fulfill its corporate social responsibility, and with the support of the Nationalization Unit, Emirates NBD introduced this programme, tailored specifically for UAE high school students in remote areas of the country so they can become valuable members of their society and compete successfully from the get-go.
Participating students attended the course on Saturdays over a period of six weeks, from 8:00am-2:00pm. The first day covered Emirates NBD
overview induction, and an online English assessment with the Global English course. Each student was provided with an account user name and password to improve their communication skills in Business English, lasting up to six months. Subsequent courses included Work Ethics, Job Interview Skills, Effective E-mail Writing, and Presentation Skills.
Participants at the Mohammed Bin Hamad Al Sharqi Secondary School for Boys in Fujairah gave their final presentations before members of the Nationalization team, representatives from the Board of Education, the school Principal, teachers, parents, and a host of other attendees. Following the successful completion of their presentations, a graduation ceremony was held for the students who were given their final grades, along with certificates and gifts from the bank in acknowledgment of their participation. The top three performing students were given special recognition for their efforts along with an additional gift for their achievements and hard work.
The school Principal addressed the dedicated students, and encouraged them to continue their fruitful work throughout the year. He also thanked the Nationalization team for their hard work and sincere commitment. The team was awarded with two appreciation awards, one for the bank initiative and the other award for the Business Communication Unit.
We look forward to the continued success of this initiative, where nationals from all across the UAE will benefit from the Emirates NBD public outreach initiative and wish all our young UAE nationals continued success.
