On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I am delighted to highlight a summary of achievements of Bahrain Polytechnic for the past two years during 2012 to 2014.
In the time since Bahrain Polytechnic was established in 2008, it has grown rapidly and now boasts around 2000 students across eight programme areas, ranging in level from certificate to degree. Over that time staff numbers have also grown and the range of roles has expanded as the teaching and learning activities have became more specialised and demanding at the higher levels of delivery within degrees.
The Board has also established a Technical Committee to look after the core business of teaching and learning, ensuring that Polytechnic Programmes meet the rigorous standards established by the National Authority of Qualifications and Quality Assurance for Education and Training (QQA). The QQA’s Institutional Review Report of January 2012 noted Bahrain Polytechnic’s strong commitment to quality education and to meeting industry needs in Bahrain.
The Polytechnic has laid solid foundations and is making considerable progress in achieving its Vision and Mission of graduating skilled Bahrainis that can meet the growth in demand for professionals within the current labour market, as well as meeting the needs of emerging industries as the Kingdom’s economy diversifies.
Going forward the Board of Trustees will continue to work closely with the Polytechnic’s executive management to build on the foundation of systems, policies and plans established in the last two years. We will continue to work together to achieve high levels of success and ultimately the realisation of the Polytechnic’s Vision and Mission.

Chairman of Bahrain Polytechnic’s Board of Trustees
