How to train for the DFC, an all-female training course in Dubai
The training course is being held at the DDF Training Centre in Dubai, which is run by the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Tourism.
There are around 60 female students participating in the course, which aims to teach them the ropes and develop their skills.
It is an all female course, meaning the students are all women.
“This is a very exciting time for our country and the UAE,” said Sheikh Ahmed Al Saadi, the DFPTO chair.
“We’re seeing the birth of a new generation of women in our country, which will change the dynamic of our society and make the country one of the most women-friendly in the world.”
“We will be teaching these women in a very positive and empowering environment,” she added.
The DDF is part of the DTF (Dubai-based Training and Development) network, which trains up to 1,000 female UAE students each year.
“DDF is a network of over 10,000 training centres and we are proud to have such a leading network and a number of universities supporting us,” said Dr Al Bahrani, the managing director of DDF.
“The women are really taking the initiative to train with us to better their skills, to develop their own skills, and to help us to become a leading training centre.”

“I was able to learn new skills and I also got to be closer to the women and their families,” she said.
“For me, it’s a chance to grow, to learn about my family and the women here in Dubai.”
While the women are training for the upcoming national competition, they are also participating in training courses that include the US, Canada, Britain, France, Germany, Italy and Spain.
DDF has also set up an online course for the women.
