The Abu Dhabi School of Government (ADSG), the leading government platform for enhancing human capital in the emirate, has announced the launch of the Future Shapers program, which seeks to unlock the digital career and leadership potential of Abu Dhabi employees.
The development of this program comes as part of ADSG’s efforts to strengthen the digital capabilities and skills of Abu Dhabi employees and support the digital agenda of the Abu Dhabi government.
Targeting both Abu Dhabi Government employees and Abu Dhabi residents, the program offers unrivalled access to a community of like-minded peers and specialized tech-industry members, as well as in demand digital content and exclusive certifications for graduates who complete the program. The program has adopted a flexible learning approach that empowers participants to learn at their own pace.
Upon successful completion of the initial 4 week long ‘Challenge Phase’ of the program, 5,000 of the top performers will be enrolled in the ‘Connect Phase’, which is a Nanodegree Program Scholarship focusing on advanced course content, real-world projects and expert reviews provided through weekly guidance sessions held by mentors and experts from the global technology education platform ‘Udacity’.
This program serves as an exceptional opportunity for participants to develop the most in-demand skills and knowledge, which will ultimately empower them to become technology-aware and digitally-driven professionals. At ADSG, we believe that digital literacy is a stable requirement for all Abu Dhabi employees and we are confident that this program will be a positive step toward bridging the capitals future skills gap created by emerging technology.
The ADSG has successfully launched more than 23 training programs providing Abu Dhabi government employees with the skills and expertise needed to enable them to participate in leading the future of Abu Dhabi’s government in the coming fifty years.
