Manama, August 13, 2013
Aluminium Bahrain (Alba), one of the largest and most modern smelters in the world, recently concluded its month-long Alba Annual Summer Training Programme 2013 with a graduation ceremony.
The training programme was aimed at providing the children of Alba’s employees who are high school graduates, university students and trainees of vocational institutes a platform for gaining a practical understanding of work life as well as a chance of acquiring professional work experience during their summer break.
Alba’s acting director for Administration, Abdul Rahman Janahi presided over the graduation ceremony and was joined by the training & recruitment manager, Rawdha Salman Alaradi.
Also present were parents and family members of the graduating students as well as other company officials.
“Alba remains deeply committed towards achieving Bahrainisation of the workforce and regards the annual summer training programme to be a key step in fulfilling these goals,” Janahi said.
“What it does is enable young Bahrainis to join a company like Alba for a month, get a glimpse of what is required to work in a professional environment and acquire skills that will improve their chances to become tomorrow’s leaders.
“It is our wish that the programme has proved to be useful to the young students, and it is our hope and desire that they achieve success in whatever industry they eventually choose as a career option,” he added.
As part of the training programme, the students were based in different departments across the organisation. They also received training in business ethics and enterprise in action, environmental issues and safety, interview skills and CV writing. – TradeArabia News Service
