Acacia first to offer face-to-face, classroom learning in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

After two years of uncertainty and upheaval, it feels that the world is starting (at least) to get back to normal.

Across Saudi Arabia, businesses are opening up again, workers are returning to offices and, crucially, students are finally returning to classrooms! Saudi nationals can even apply for funding from the HRDF and get up to SAR 30,000 support for studying CIPD Level 3 and Level 5 qualifications in Human Resources and Learning & Development.

It almost goes without saying that at Acacia, we’re overjoyed at the fact that we can now welcome back our students into our classrooms to learn with tutors in a face-to-face environment.


Face-to-Face learning: CIPD Level 3, Level 5 and Level 7

Whilst learning entirely through digital means can be useful for some people when it comes to flexibility, it doesn’t suit everyone and every subject. Sometimes, you need to be in a physical setting with other students to really get to grips with a subject.

For us, face-to-face learning is one of the best ways to become really acquainted with a subject and to foster a sense of shared understanding and purpose.

We offer CIPD HR qualifications at all levels: from entry-level Level 3 qualifications through to intermediate Level 5 qualifications and senior Level 7 qualifications. Whether you’re at the start of your HR journey, looking to break into the profession, or you’re looking to develop your existing career, we offer a CIPD qualification that’s suited to your ability.

By learning together, in a classroom environment, students have the benefit of enriching their own learning through body language, non-verbal communication and asking questions directly to a tutor and class members.

We generally find that communication in a face-to-face setting is a lot easier than online, where unforeseen issues like connection problems and technology issues can sometimes impact the quality of learning. It can feel quite lonely studying online sometimes, too. That’s one of the reasons we’re so happy to be able to invite our students back into the classroom!


What our students say

Taking advantage of the fact that we were able to return to classroom-based study, we caught up with some of our students in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia at one of our recent CIPD workshops. We wanted to find out the reasons that they had decided to study a professional CIPD-accredited course with Acacia.

You can watch the full video on YouTube.

 

Acacia’s reputation for delivering outstanding learning through its CIPD workshops and qualifications appears to be a major attraction for many students.

One of the students we spoke to, Naif Al-Qarni, said: “I chose Acacia because I did my research and found that Acacia really is one of the celebrated learning providers that provides the CIPD qualification.”

Naif added: “I chose Acacia Learning as one of my friends referred it to me and after I had done my research I found out that it is one of the top rated CIPD-approved providers to deliver CIPD and [about] the reputation of Mr. Kevin Haslam as one of the best tutors in Saudi Arabia to deliver CIPD qualifications.”

Another student, Khalid Al Enazi, added: “The reason that I am taking this class is to improve my skills and apply it in my professional life.”

We first started offering face-to-face learning in Saudi Arabia in 2014 and since then we’ve helped thousands of HR professionals develop their skills, experience and knowledge, allowing them to improve the performance of their organisations in the process.

One of our goals is to help HR professionals across the Kingdom enhance their skills so that they can support the growth of their careers and the companies that they work for. With our range of CIPD-accredited human resources and learning and development qualifications, you can.

It’s not surprising that 98% of our students recommend Acacia. We’re also incredibly proud to have a 100% CIPD course pass rate too.

You can be sure that with Acacia, you’ll be learning the very latest knowledge from the most experienced tutors.


Safe learning environments

Safety, and creating a comfortable learning environment for all students, will always be an essential consideration for us, too, even as the world starts to get back to normal. That’s why we ensure that all students are as socially distanced as possible and that we take relevant precautions to make our learning environments as safe as possible.

If you’re not in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, don’t worry! We offer CIPD approved HR courses across the Middle East. Whether you’re looking to enhance your existing HR skills or to break into a career in HR, a CIPD-accredited qualification will give you the ability to advance your career and get that job you’ve dreamed of.
