The Gulf Centre for Aviation Studies (GCAS) recently hosted 25 students for two education sessions, which saw students take part in a number of workshops geared around proactivity and prioritisation.
Part of The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teens programme, the training is part of Abu Dhabi Airport’s CSR commitments towards employee engagement and future Emirati talent development.
The group, which was comprised of 12 boys and 13 girls, were primarily the sons and daughters of Abu Dhabi Airports’ staff.
The training was conducted by a GCAS in-house instructor who is certified by Franklin Covey.
Sultan Al Mansouri, General Manager of the Gulf Centre for Aviation Studies, said: “We are highly encouraged by the level of participation from the 25 students we hosted here today. All of them brought an exceptional level of interest, inquisitiveness and energy, demonstrating the significant potential present throughout the upcoming generation.
“Abu Dhabi Airports is committed to ensuring the development of our employees. This initiative represents an extension of our obligation to staff and their families, and comes as a manifestation of our responsibilities towards broader society,” he added.
