Zayed University (ZU) and the Abdulla Al Ghurair Foundation for Education (AGFE) have successfully marked the first year of their partnership, following a Memorandum of Understanding between the two entities to support Emirati youth along their education and early employment journeys.

Within a year, the partnership produced exceptional results with the flagship initiative. ZU student engagement in the Al Ghurair Young Thinkers Programme (YTP), an online education and career readiness platform provided by AGFE, recorded a strong response.

The three-year agreement to formalise the partnership between the two entities and integrate YTP – which offers career exploration tools, professional and soft skills courses, and education and career information –targets 6,000 student enrolments by 2023.
