“The feedback we have received on this visit to KSA regarding Ten Live’s customer service offering to our Education & Training clients in KSA has been extremely positive.  Our clients have commented on the prompt turnaround of staff, quality of teachers and Instructors we are working with and notable reduction in time spent on the recruitment of new staff from working with Ten Live International.

Ten Live – Education & Training Recruitment  – Expansion & GCC Education Reforms 

Ten Live GCC MapReform of education is a current key priority of GCC countries to enable them to achieve economic diversification, boosting growth, creating jobs, reducing reliance on oil and improving resilience to oil price volatility in the longer term

All GCC governments have made commitments to improving the quality of their education systems and related infrastructure in line with their national long-term plans/visions. GCC governments also envisage greater private-sector participation (in anticipation of a better quality of education) and public-private partnerships (PPPs). A significant portion of GCC budgets (c.16.5%) has been reserved for improving education. In 2016, for example, the UAE, Oman, and KSA allocated 20% of their budgeted expenditure towards the education sector.

Ten Live International Education & Recruitment Expansion – Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) Education Reforms

GCC Saudi Arabia Ten LiveUnder the KSA government’s development plan, ‘Vision 2030’, ‘Saudization’ of the workforce is the official national policy of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to increase employment among nationals and decrease dependency on expatriate workers in the private sector.

The KSA education sector is, therefore, undergoing an education reform process extending from early schooling to later stages of higher education to upgrade the educational systems and develop the skill-sets of Saudi nationals to enable them to compete in the private sector workforce and in the global employment marketplace.

To this end, the Saudi government increased education spending by 3% in its 2017 budget. The Saudi government invested £850m in 100 colleges under its ‘Colleges of Excellence Programme’ as part of Vision 2030 to boost technical and vocational education and training in Saudi Arabia.
