DP World Launches ‘20Xel’ National Talent Development Programme 2023
DP World today launched the inaugural phase of its ‘National Talent Development Programme 2023’ (20Xel), aimed at training and developing the next generation of Emirati leaders in trade, logistics and supply chain management.
The 20Xel National Talent Development Programme 2023 is the cornerstone of DP World’s Emiratisation efforts.
DP World is committed to attracting and nurturing Emirati talent, and this programme is key to that goal. The programme aims to foster a culture of dedication and team spirit while also encouraging innovation in a key sector.
The programme focuses on key topics, including future skills in trade, logistics and supply chains -- to develop theoretical and practical expertise for successful careers in a technology-based world.
The programme is open to Emirati graduates from all disciplines. Participants will receive an international supply chain management diploma from the prestigious Rotterdam School of Management, as well as hands-on training and guidance from experienced DP World mentors.
Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, Group Chairman and CEO of DP World, said: "We are delighted to launch registration for Emirati graduates in our 20Xel Programme 2023 to develop their career with us.
"The principles that govern this exceptional programme stem from the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
"Our primary objective is to actively contribute to maintaining Dubai's leading position as a global investment destination, transcending its previous role as a regional economic hub."
The programme consists of four stages: foundational, operational, developmental, and leadership.
Participants can obtain an international supply chain management diploma from the prestigious Rotterdam School of Management. Hands-on training and guidance from experienced colleagues enrich the learning experience.
Recently, a batch of 6 female and 11 male graduates, successfully attained their Diplomas in Supply Chain Management. The programme included virtual sessions and real-time visits to ports and logistics centers, providing valuable insights for their future leadership roles.
In addition to the National Talent Development Programme 2023, DP World has several other programmes dedicated to supporting the aspirations of the UAE's youth.
