Oman Air and Boeing celebrate the graduation of Maharat Programme

Posted 13 May 2013 · 1 Comment

A special event has been held to mark the graduation ceremony of the Maharat programme at the Higher Technical College in Muscat, Oman.

The Maharat programme was jointly organised by Oman Air and Boeing and the ceremony took place under the aegis of HE Maitha bint Saif Al Mahrouqiyah, Undersecretary of the Ministry of Tourism. It was also attended by HE Mohsin bin Khamis Al Balushi, Oman Air Board member and Advisor to the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Dr Khalid Ambusaidi, Dean of the Higher Technical College, and a number of Oman Air’s senior management team.                                                                                                                                      

The Maharat programme aims to raise the capabilities of new graduates and give them the skills and information required to prosper in today’s job market and work environments. It targeted 120 young Omani students. 

The training was delivered by qualified instructors with long-term practical experience and focused on modern learning techniques which sharpen participants’ skills, promote team spirit and the importance of team values, improve self-confidence and provide opportunities to apply the newly-found skills in a practical setting. 

The programme also offered special training in the field of leadership, by defining concepts and entrepreneurial behaviours that encouraged participants to start their own projects. 

The High Technical College in Muscat is one of seven technical colleges, supervised by the Oman Ministry of Manpower, that together constitute the second largest institution of higher education in Oman, with 12,000 students studying a range of programmes.

Just curious, what is the definition of "Maharat"? Is the Higher Technical College in Muscat, Oman for women only, or is it co-ed?
