Nationals’ Development Programme

Developing The Leaders Of Tomorrow

Whilst all GCC countries are implementing reforms to make employment of National citizens a priority, a shortfall of qualified professionals in different sectors is still hampering recruitment and hiring Nationals just to achieve the numbers is not a viable solution.

At Kaplan, we want to make a difference by playing our role in meeting the rising learning and development needs of the National workforce.

Collaboratively customised for your industry, organisation
and people

Designed to develop behavioural insight alongside technical excellence

Delivery includes a holistic mix of facilitation mediums and tools

Specialised Solutions

Our aim is to prepare your employees to deal effectively with the adaptive challenges, by providing them the necessary skills and tools which are needed to reflect and discover. Through these targeted programmes, we can empower them and propel them towards growth.

Kaplan’s National Development Programme


To prepare this next generation of future leaders we have developed two highly specialised training and development programmes that are both individually nourishing and organisationally relevant.
