University students across the UAE are invited for a preview of Expo 2020.
For Universities and Young Professionals
We welcome university students across the UAE for a sneak preview of Expo 2020 Dubai.
A behind-the-scenes bus tour of the Expo site will be followed by a thought-provoking workshop tailored to the students’ field of study, where they can learn about the first World Expo in the region and our vision for its legacy.
Come witness our Expo vision coming to life! Let us know when you’d like to visit.
Launched in April 2016, the Expo 2020 Dubai Apprenticeship Programme’s vision is to empower youth and support them in reaching their potential by equipping them with the skills and experiences that are required in today’s workplace.
During the first edition of the programme, we received more than 2,700 applications from graduates. A shortlist of 150 young people participated in an evaluation process that tested relevant skills, including creativity, communication and teamwork. Twenty-seven successful candidates benefited from the nine-month programme, which included academic modules, work placements, mentoring and a capstone project.
We have built on this success by integrating our Apprenticeship Programme with the Tumoohi (‘My Ambition’ in Arabic) scheme run by Jebel Ali Free Zone (Jafza), a global developer and operator of economic zones, logistics and industrial parks. UAE nationals will benefit from an enhanced programme, offering a range of on-the-job training opportunities within Jafza’s vast network, to further boost their careers.
"During the programme, I had the opportunity to work on a project and manage it all by myself, which is something that I couldn’t have done without the Apprenticeship Programme. Now I have a clear vision of what I want to do."
Abdulla AlHashemi, Apprenticeship Programme Graduate
“When I started, I didn’t know what to expect, but it quickly became clear that we would not only learn a lot, but also be given the opportunity to put it all into practice.”
Neha Ahmed, Apprenticeship Programme Graduate and Associate, Event Operations, Expo 2020 Dubai
