Etihad Airways has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Higher Colleges of Technology (HCT) in the UAE to provide its students with opportunities to develop skills for future careers in aviation.

The agreement between the Abu Dhabi-based airline and the higher education institution supports the development of the UAE national workforce by providing students with the skills and knowledge required to pursue a career in aviation engineering technology.

At the forefront will be work placements by HCT students with Etihad that will take place during their courses. Specialist seminars and workshops in areas such as engineering, business administration, hospitality and human resource management will also be offered to the students.

James Hogan, Etihad Airways chief executive, said, “Etihad Airways is fully committed to the development of UAE national talent within the airline and this new agreement with the Higher Colleges of Technology will enable both organisations to achieve their goals which are to have a strong UAE national workforce.”

Etihad Airways launched its innovative Emiratisation scheme in 2007 which now boasts four streams: the cadet pilot programme, graduate management development programme and the contact centre.

Among the many aims of the Emiratisation scheme is that 15% of Etihad’s workforce will be Emirati nationals by 2012.
