Following BSPTI’s meeting with the Assistant Undersecretary for Labour Affairs at the Ministry of Labour, Ahmed Al-Hayiki, the Chairman of BSPTI, Nawaf Al Jishi, said private training institutes are keen on developing their programmes to achieve the directions of the Ministry of Labour to develop the skills of job seekers and enhance their capabilities to meet the needs of the jobs available in the private sector to make them the first choice in the labour market.
During the meeting, which was attended by several Ministry and Society representatives, Al-Jishi noted the Ministry of Labour's eagerness to discuss the challenges facing the training sector and find appropriate solutions for its development, as part of the Ministry's efforts to develop the labour market in Bahrain, keep unemployment rates within safe limits, and assist training institutes in providing Qualitative training.
