National Qualifications Authority (NQA)

The establishment of the National Qualifications Authority (NQA) is a key initiative to cope with the dramatic changes UAE is witnessing at all levels, including changes within the economic and education and training sectors. UAE is always best placed to initiate appropriate strategies that can achieve its vision of socio-economic development, coincide with the emerging needs for the technology-based economy, and be in a better position to move towards the knowledge-based economy the world has been going through since the 1990’s of the last century. These changes, further, have necessitated re-addressing the roles played by the education and training bodies and stimulated the development of human capital skills. As part of the world-economic framework, the UAE economy, and its prosperity, faces different challenges imposed by the ever-changing work environment and the continuous need for a highly-skilled and qualified workforce.
