The Qatief College was set to be at the forefront of cultural change, in line with the Saudi 2030 Vision, to reduce unemployment and raise female workforce aspirations and opportunities.

The qualifications needed to be internationally recognised but more importantly the students must be ‘fit for purpose’ and progress into work at the end of the training.

The challenge was to enable learning that developed confidence, personal and business skills to meet the needs of employers and to contribute to the ‘Saudisation’ of the workforce.
