Tatweer, NIIT sign deal to hire Bahrainis
Manama, October 31, 2013
National Institute for Industrial Training (NIIT) and Tatweer Petroleum have signed an agreement to train and hire 60 Bahraini job-seekers at the oil and gas firm.
Tatweer is responsible for developing Bahrain's oil and gas fields which make up to 25 per cent of the kingdom's economy, said a report in the Gulf Daily News, our sister publication.
The deal follows another agreement signed between Tatweer and Tamkeen as part of a BD627,000 ($1.65 million) programme.
It includes training young Bahraini graduates for 12 to 18 months - 40 of them on oil and gas production, and 20 others on electrical, mechanical and instrumental specialisations.
The trainees will attend a four-month course inside NIIT, followed by an "on-the-job" training at Tatweer headquarters and Bahrain Field for eight to 14 months according to their relevant studies.
The agreement was signed by NIIT managing director Dr Hashim Hashim and Tatweer Petroleum deputy chief executive Hisham Zubari.
"This signing adds another achievement to the NIIT, being a leading institute that works with prominent companies and institutions in the kingdom," Dr Hashim said.
"We are proud to provide training services to one of the biggest companies in Bahrain and provide the trainees with the skills they require to perform to their potential. This will enable them to help increase the production of the company and meet its objectives and the kingdom," he said.
NIIT was established five years ago by a group of 53 business leaders in Bahrain to train Bahrainis to enhance their chances of employment.
It worked with 800 companies in Bahrain that specialise in engineering, commerce and industrial fields.
NIIT's key clients included Asry, Alba and others.
Besides industrial training, NIIT also provides special training in management skills, computing and other office-related jobs. It also plans to provide training for females in the near future. – TradeArabia News Service
