The Higher Colleges of Technology’s Abu Dhabi Women’s College recently hosted over three dozen leaders from private and public schools in the Abu Dhabi area at a workshop with the theme, “How can we help them succeed?”
Organized by the College’s Community Relations team and led by College counselor Lubna Souheil, the workshop addressed issues of common concern among educators who work with the nation’s young women. Leaders who attended the workshop expressed the hope that future workshops will take place on various topics, both at the College and at the schools.
The group has already planned workshops to be given by ADWC Applied Communication students to high school students in vocational areas such as photography and photo editing. In addition, school principals who attended requested that the workshop on student success be repeated for their teachers.
ADWC offers bachelor’s degrees to Emirati female students in the fields of education, business administration (with several specializations), applied communication, information technology (with several specializations), and electronics engineering. In addition to business and IT degrees, Khalifa City Women’s College offers degrees in health sciences.
One school administrator who attended the workshop said, “This workshop has been very useful. I am grateful to the College for working with the schools to help our students.”
Abu Dhabi/Khalifa City Women’s College Director Dr. Jace Hargis stated, “We believe that building connections with high school students, as well as with high school teachers and leaders, will strengthen our College’s capacity to educate the women who ultimately choose to come here.”
