Education & Training

The education sector has been expanding fast, growing from only 10 schools in 1970 to over 1800 in 2018. This is thanks to robust population growth, economic development and the policy of Omanisation, which seeks to reduce the country’s dependence on foreign workers, technicians and managers. Despite a temporary slowdown caused by the oil price slump of 2014-16, education is set for further expansion, which will create new opportunities for private sector investment.
