What Oakwood does

With 20 years of experience delivering training in the Middle East, North Africa, and Europe, Oakwood has provided professional CIPD, ILM and CMI qualifications to thousands of students who were seeking to develop themselves professionally. We facilitate a range of courses across the MENA region. We work alongside in-country partners and with trusted associates to ensure an unsurpassed service for everyone we work with - individuals or our corporate clients. Oakwood guarantees a 100% pass rate to all dedicated students, thanks to the support of our expert Student Support Team.

Recently, we have worked closely with our Awarding Bodies to provide online training solutions for individuals and businesses. This marks not only an effort to help people during the Covid pandemic, but also a new stage in Oakwood's development.
