About our company:
Skills training for the employment of Mozambicans was the main objective for launching “Flags in Arms, Professional Training and Languages”.
One of the key factors is to assist Mozambicans who will be expected to communicate in English for professional reasons, and to pro-actively assist and teach Portuguese to foreigners arriving in the country. "Flags in Arms" offers also “Translating & Interpreting” services for individuals and organisations.
Finally, with so many potential jobs to be claimed by the Mozambicans, there is an enormous need to develop customer care training in the hospitality market, guaranteeing employment in this sector as well as developing skills for Safari Guides to communities who live within game parks and natural reserves in the country.
Last but not least, the ‘Oil and Gas’ boom to be, will require well trained professionals to board the installations, so training technical English for industry as well as for the offshore market will also be in high demand for this emerging market in Mozambique.
