Advisory Committee

The program is designed specifically for the youth; and so the National Program for Skills Development formed an advisory committee consisting of a group of youth aged between 15 and 29 years old. Their role is to provide suggestions and innovative ideas, along with contributing in selecting the Program’s partners. The Committee is made up of youth from various walks of life in the Sultanate; as they are either studying at a school or university, or working in their own businesses or in different institutions, whether from the government or private sector.

Partners

The National Youth Program for Skills Development is keen on identifying the highest standards in selecting the Program’s partners; in order to provide the best experience that lives up to the aspirations of the Omani youth based on the 4th Industrial Revolution and its skills.

Therefore, we partnered with the educational and developmental institutions topping the international specialized classifications; in order to provide the latest scientific and technical approaches and practices in the world. Furthermore, engagements have been made with a number of leading Omani institutions that have enriched the Program with local experiences and achieved balance for the participants between the international and national experiences.
