    “At Petronas, we believe in improving the lives of the communities and this programme helps to empower youth with greater self-esteem and social-emotional skills which are vital to pave their ways ahead as future leaders.

    “As such, Petronas Carigali Brunei Ltd (PCBL) decided to hold the second PETRONAS School of Life Programme this year after witnessing significant changes in the lives of those attended last year,” said PCBL Country Head Mohd Johan Ariff bin Mohd Supian during the launching of the second programme at the Mitsubishi Hall of Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD) yesterday.

    The programme, officiated by Permanent Secretary (Higher Education) at the Ministry of Education Dr Haji Azman bin Ahmad, is a corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative by PCBL.

    The programme will run until November 25 comprising 20 topics, divided into five key modules including change and adaptation, career, community and environment, entrepreneurship and communications. It will be conducted at UBD, Universiti Teknologi Brunei, Institute of Brunei Technical Education, Universiti Islam Sultan Sharif Ali and Politeknik Brunei.
