About Atticus Academy

AA was formed to operate under AlMutaiwei Investment Group, chaired by Mr. Obaid Ghanim AlMutaiwei, which operates a variety of educational institutions ranging from nurseries to universities, both in the UAE and overseas.

Atticus Academy is the pioneer in German-standard and high-quality vocational and technical (industrial) training in the UAE and the Gulf region operating from its facility located in Dubai International Academic City (DIAC). We are the only vocational institution referring guaranteed employment in Germany for our successful graduates.

Our Standards

Apprenticeship and vocational training have a long-standing tradition in Germany and form an integral part of the education system there. Unlike in countries with a largely university-driven tertiary education system, the German economy places high value on vocational skills for their manufacturing base that has been the backbone of Germany’s economic success story.

Atticus Academy trains and certifies fully in line with IHK (German Chamber of Commerce) and German Ministry of Health standards. As such our diplomas are recognized not only by German employers but also in many other countries in the world.

After successfully completing any one of our programs, our graduates are directly referred employment in Germany.


The vocational programs at Atticus Academy place an emphasis on practical training alongside theory classes, while meeting the aforementioned German vocational standards. To this end all exams are given directly by testers flown in specially from Germany twice a year.

Furthermore, to meet our mission of a practice-focused training, our nursing students are provided with an in-house nursing lab and also train in local hospitals. For our industrial students we provide a customized training facility and workshops for their practical lessons.

Our Learning Environment

Suitable class sizes and exceptional, IHK / MoH qualified, teachers allow us to offer a comfortable and inclusive educational environment while ensuring each student receives the individualized attention and support s/he needs.

Furthermore, each student is assigned a dedicated coordinator to accompany her/him throughout their training journey. Our facility in Dubai Academic City offers a comfortable, peaceful environment with many facilities for students’ comforts.
