Dubai Culture and Arts Authority, Dubai Culture, has announced the launch of its Cultural Tour Guide programme in partnership with Yas Consulting and Training Company.

The announcement follows the successful graduation of the first group of 11 employees trained under the initiative, drawn from numerous heritage sites including the recently unveiled Etihad Museum.

The first Cultural Tour Guide Programme was held from September 19 to November 21, 2016, and was aimed at honing the technical skills of Dubai Culture staff specialising in history, Islamic civilisation and tourism. The initiative forms part of the authority’s broader efforts to support Emirati tourism and culture.

Fatima Ali Al Mohammed, Manager of Human Resources at Dubai Culture and Arts Authority, said, "Dubai Culture priorities training its employees to an advanced level, all across the rich series of Emirati cultural fields. This programme provides skills and insights to ensure our cultural experts and tour guides are highly informed, and capable of providing advanced levels of service at cultural, archaeological and heritage sites across the Emirate.

"We are confident that the training programme will encourage young Emiratis to serve cultural sector and strengthen national identity," she added.
