History & Background:

After the liberation of the State of Kuwait in 1991, and to achieve the ambitions and aspirations of the Kuwaiti Army, the idea of training a large number of officers for the staff and leadership course, was crystallized because sending them abroad was not possible. In 1995 a project of Mubarak Al-Abdullah College for leadership and staff in cooperation with the British Camberly College and an academic and scientific connection with it was established, which in turn necessitated a British curriculum and British teachers in order to participate in the educational process in the college in cooperation with the Kuwaiti teachers and in 1996.

The first group of Kuwaiti staff officers graduated and their number was 63 officers. On 18 August 1997, the Amiri Decree No. 5/1997 was issued giving the college a name of (Mubarak Al-Abdullah for Leadership and Joint Staff)
regarding as a good omen of the Lieutenant General Mubarak Al-abdullah, the Chief of General Staff (formerly) of the Kuwaiti Army during the period (1963-1980) with the good memorial of one of the sincere army men who exerted great efforts to build this brave army. He died on 26 November 1987.

The college was connected with the British Bracknell College because of merging the British colleges of the three forces in a joint college, in 2001, the “joint” was added so the name was Mubarak Al-Abdullah for Leadership and Joint Staff College. It was connected with the British College of Shrivenham after it was transferred to the City of Swindon, Shrivenham.
