Dubai, United Arab Emirates, July 5, 2018:   UK College of Business & Computing (UKCBC), one of London’s most reputed higher & vocational education inaugurates its international campus in Dubai in the presence of Mr. Mohammad Abdullah, Managing Director of Dubai International Academic City (DIAC) & Dubai Knowledge Park (DKP).  The launch was well attended by the UKCBC Board of Governors, distinguished guests and other key dignitaries.  The campus is also the first branch of a UK Technical and vocational Education and Training institution set up in Dubai June 2018 for the first batch of students.
 
Commenting on the launch Mr. Mohammad Abdullah said, “Technical and vocational training is vital in meeting the growing human resource demands of strategically important business sectors in Dubai, offering a fast and effective solution to develop talent from within the UAE. Welcoming the UK College for Business and Computing to our thriving community of leading educational institutions and vocational training providers marks a further milestone in our support towards Dubai’s economy by supporting business growth through the provision of a highly trained workforce.” 
 
The College currently has six campuses in Central & Greater London including the English language arm UK College of English (UKCE) and caters to more than 3000 students. The UK campuses offer courses in Business Management, Computing, Health & Social Care, Travel & Tourism as well as accounting courses. 
 
Located in the heart of Dubai International Academic City (DIAC) and with a campus spanning around 19,000 square feet, the Dubai Campus will initially deliver Pearson BTEC qualifications in business management, computing, travel & tourism, and health and social care eventually expanding to other qualifications that suit the UAE’s higher education and employability needs. 
 
Employers increasingly prefer to hire graduates who can demonstrate work ready skills. BTEC diplomas provide students with industry experience from ground level. Students are required to complete assessments based on real companies or scenarios which helps build skills such as decision making, communication and other interpersonal skills. 
 
“With the UAE Government’s initiative and emphasis on additional vocational qualification for the citizens and residents, we are seeing that vocational training is taking off in the UAE. Dubai is an important regional destination for professional development and according to the official portal of the UAE Government, The UAE needs to produce 10 Emiratis with vocational skills for every university graduate produced to achieve a sustainable and diversified knowledge-based economy; therefore this is the first step in our broader strategic plan to give true global access to quality education at value for money prices that will appeal to UAE citizens and residents that come from all income groups.” the college’s Director of Finance and Operations, Bhargav Busa, FCCA said.
 
Jonathan Sandling, Director of Studies at UKCBC, said, ‘We believe we have the right mix of courses and credibility that will help our students progress in their academic journey. Our courses are carefully designed to suit the needs of all learners. Back in the UK, we have experienced faculty to deliver BTEC qualifications across age groups so that our learners can benefit as well as manage their work life commitments. Since UAE is a diverse and cultural rich country, we have taken every effort to curate the curriculum for the broader needs of the youth. We are looking forward to welcome both local and international students to our new Dubai Campus. 
 
All the BTEC courses offered by UKCBC are awarded by Pearson, the world’s largest learning company.
