Career Related Qualifications for the Post 16 Student in Dubai
There are many talented children in Dubai. The choice of activities that the Dubai youth take part in within school hours and outside school is quite staggering. This has led to many children in Dubai wanting to pursue careers which build upon the skills they have learnt from these activities whether it be from the rugby field, swimming pool or drama studio.
Traditionally schools in Dubai only offered post 16 qualifications (A’Level & International Baccalaureate) in the core subjects such as Languages, Humanities and Sciences which resulted in many children having to leave Dubai to pursue their education abroad. However, now schools such as GEMS Wellington Academy in Silicon Oasis are introducing career related qualifications in subjects such as Sports and Exercise, Performing Arts and Creative Media Production to their curriculum’s offering an alternative to the traditional education system in Dubai.
To learn more about these subjects GEMS Wellington Academy in Silicon Oasis will be holding a series of information meetings.
