Schools Programme

The “School Visits Programme”, supported by Abu Dhabi Centre for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (ACTVET), Ministry of Education, Abu Dhabi Education Council (ADEC), Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA), SEDRA Foundation and Zayed Higher Organization (ZHO), encourages students from schools across the UAE to come to the competition in October. From February until the eve of the Competition, we will visit schools around the country, letting students know about the variety of exciting events on offer when they attend WorldSkills Abu Dhabi 2017, including opportunities to try new skills and get career advice. For students, the schools programme is their first step of the journey to their future.
