English Literacy Programme
In 2012, the English Literacy Programme was launched at the Saadiyat Accommodation Village to help improve the English of the construction workers residing at the community. Organised and taught by staff volunteers, the classes have been received with great enthusiasm and have witnessed great success. To date, a total of 90 workers have graduated from the programme. To celebrate their achievement, a special ceremony is held for all participants who had successfully completed the course.
Over 50 students have graduated through the Sir Bani Yas Education and Training Centre, taking a course for the use of the English language with focus on work-related topics. It is regularly to hold book donation drives to help build the workers' library at the community. An internal newsletter is also published and distributed throughout the Saadiyat Accommodation Village to highlight the many activities that take place at the Village and to share residents' stories.
