Dubai is taking further steps to improve the quality of vocational education.

A new resolution issued in the emirate prohibits anyone from undertaking any vocational activity without a licence.

His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai's Crown Prince and Chairman of The Executive Council issued the resolution.

The Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) has been tasked with overseeing all aspects of vocational education activities, including licensing and formalising the vocational qualifications required for various jobs.

The authority will also decide the mode of teaching and appropriate age groups for vocational courses.

Furthermore, the KHDA is authorised to issue equivalency certificates for vocational qualifications obtained abroad.

The Resolution annuls any other legislation that may contradict its provisions, and is effective from its date of publication in the Official Gazette.
