Young Saudi men and women are set to benefit from expert vocational training and education delivered by a leading UK employment and skills provider. Interserve Learning & Employment will run three new colleges as part of the Kingdom’s Colleges of Excellence Programme, which will see a further 12 technical and vocational training institutions added to its existing campuses across KSA.

Interserve Learning & Employment will operate a cluster of new purpose-built facilities in Al Quwaiiyah and Dammam, a deal finalised and signed in Riyadh by the Group’s CEO Gavin Freed and His Excellency the Governor of Technical and Vocational Training Corporation (TVTC), Dr. Ali bin Nasser Alghafis and Director General Of Human Resources Development Fund (HRDF) Ibrahim Al-Moaiqel. The contract, awarded to Interserve Learning & Employment following an international competition open to leading education organisations from around the world, will run for five years, opening two female colleges and one male college. High quality employment-related skills and qualifications will be delivered to over 6,000 Saudi students when at full capacity, with their first year focused on English language training, seen as essential criteria when seeking business employment within the country.

Speaking about the win, Gavin Freed said: “We are delighted that Interserve Learning & Employment has been chosen as one of the key providers to operate these prestigious colleges in the Kingdom. Our belief, just as it is in the UK, is that education and employment-specific skills go hand-in-hand if young people are to stand a chance in successfully competing for jobs in today’s labor market. We’re looking forward to helping to positively shape the lives of young people across Saudi Arabia”.
