Dubai College of Tourism (DCT) has signed an agreement with the Expo Generation Programme to train more than 350 Emiratis for diverse pivotal roles at Expo 2020 Dubai. The training will be implemented under Medyaf, the industry nationalisation programme of DCT aimed at delivering highly-skilled local talent for Dubai’s growing workforce, particularly for the tourism industry and other sectors with tourism touchpoints.
The specialised course will consist of three weeks of classroom training, and an additional three weeks of on-the-job training with the support of industry experts. The classroom training will consist of six modules covering knowledge of Expo 2020, exceptional service, cultural awareness, communication, leadership and resilience. On graduating from the programme, the young Emiratis will be deployed as part of the Expo 2020 team.
