Al Safar Group had initiated Central Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship (CIIE) in Dubai, UAE, as part of its expansion plans in the line of education. CIIE, established in 2018, provides sustainable growth in organizations through entrepreneurial education degrees, both academic and vocational. CIIE is a comprehensive facility offering international standard education and qualifications, language laboratory support, and test centre services.

CIIE is a KHDA Permit holder and an Approved Centre for NCFE CACHE and TQUK, the top UK Awarding Organizations, offering qualifications that are regulated by Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual), UK. CIIE is also an Approved Test Venue for IDP IELTS as well.

Besides, CIIE provides quality innovative approaches in education to achieve the national objectives and redress existing gaps and short comes. To do so we have collaborated with Scottish Qualification Authority (SQA) locally to offer their Advanced Certificate and Advanced Diploma which is one of best ways to develop a student’s career or progress into further studies.
