In a strategic bid to cater to the professional needs of the Middle East, the Chartered Institute for People and Development (CIPD), in collaboration with the Dubai Police, has rolled out a pioneering HR diploma course in Arabic – a first-of-its-kind in the region.

Brigadier Badran Al Shamsi, Director of the General Department of Training at the Dubai Police, Deputy Director Brigadier Ahmed Mardas, and Mr Stuart Dunlop, the Regional Director of CIPD, bore witness to the commencement of this ground-breaking diploma. The initiative is part of a broader effort and proactive move to meet the needs of HR professionals, Dubai Police said in a statement.

The diploma, lasting six months, kicked off with participants from various departments of the Dubai Police. The program intends to enhance the knowledge and skills of HR professionals in Arabic, broadening their specialised experience in a more inclusive and expansive approach.

Brigadier Badran Al Shamsi emphasised the uniqueness of this Arabic-language diploma offered by CIPD, aimed at honing the skills and expertise of HR specialists in a professional and precise manner.

“This is part of Dubai Police’s broader collaboration with globally renowned organisations specialising in HR sciences, ensuring the sustainability of human resources to meet the goals and strategies of the departments they serve,” he said.

Stuart Dunlop, Regional Director for CIPD MENA, said: “We are delighted to pilot Arabic HR qualifications in the Middle East, the region has tremendous potential for professional development, and this initiative aligns with our mission at the CIPD to champion better work and working lives by contributing to the overall enhancement of the people profession in the region. We are proud to launch this initiative with Dubai Police, an organisation renowned for its commitment to the professional development of its people.”

This move by the CIPD reflects the dynamic business transformation the Middle East is undergoing, thanks to efforts and initiatives aimed at economic diversity. These support innovation and digital transformation and underscore the crucial role of individual skills development in shaping a sustainable future.

CIPD intends to launch the same diploma to the Middle Eastern market by the end of 2023.
