Tamkeen backing for training institutes
Manama, October 13, 2012
Bahrain's training and education institutes will continue to receive assistance with the forthcoming launch of the second phase of Tamkeen's Training and Education Performance Support Programme.
The programme delivers sector-specific support services to enhance the performance of enterprises.
It enables educational and training institutions in Bahrain to implement international best practices and enhance the technical and management skills of Bahraini employees engaged in various occupations in this sector.
At the same time the programme enables these institutions to elevate the level they provide to up-skill the Bahraini workforce and make them the first choice for employment.
The specialised training offered through the programme will be delivered through five world-renowned partners selected by Tamkeen, and they are Tribal, International Development Ireland, Skill Factor Consultants, Partners Conference and Event Managementa and ABDI.
Third Wave International has also been selected to provide comprehensive events management solutions for the second phase of the programme, which will consist of 30 workshops targeting 500 employees in the training and education sector.
The programmes will commence next month and is expected to continue up to June 2014.
"The launch of the second phase of the Training and Education Performance Support programme represents a further extension of Tamkeen's strong support to ensure that the skills of Bahraini workers are compatible with myriad challenges presented by the modern-day working environment," said Tamkeen chief executive Mahmood Al Kooheji.
Over the first phase of the programme, 24 workshops were held which benefited 315 trainees. The programme is one of 180 programmes created by Tamkeen to date, which have benefited 53,000 Bahrainis and enterprises.-TradeArabia News Service
