    Duqm Refinery holds Summer Leadership Program in UK for outstanding students

    Duqm Refinery is organising the second Summer Leadership Programme in UK for outstanding students in the Governorate of Al Wusta schools for the second year in a row.

    This programme continues on its success of last year’s leadership and communication skills programme which was positively received by the participants. The one-month long summer camp is organised in collaboration with the Ministry of Education. This initiative is a part of Duqm Refinery youth capacity development programme which aims at empowering Omani youth and uplift their skills and to motivate them to achieve more from life.

    Jasim Hassan al Ajmi, head of Corporate Sustainability at Duqm Refinery, said, “We are committed to creating a positive impact on the lives of young people from the Al Wusta community and Oman. We have a holistic approach in mind when wanting to further develop these outstanding students. This is to make sure they not only have good grades while applying for further studies but also have the necessary life skills that would encourage them to be self-reliant and independent in the future.”

    To prepare the students for this programme, a one-week induction programme was conducted in Muscat to prepare the students for the program in UK and inform them about British culture and how to benefit from the courses that are offered.
