Dubai Financial Market (DFM) has launched its Summer Training Program 2012 which offers 18 UAE school and university students practical training to help them sharpen their skills to meet the labour market needs.
The program will run throughout this month for 6 hours per day from 8am to 2pm, said a statement from DFM. It is aimed at sharpening participants’ skills and enabling them to plan for their future career.
Initiated in 2004, the summer training program’s success in achieving its desired objectives has encouraged DFM to organise this program annually. Every trainee receives a cash allowance in addition to the appreciation certificate.
Tayeba Abdul Mannan, the assistant vice president, Head of Human Resources, DFM Company said: "The program aims to sharpen the students’ skills enabling them to plan for their future career, as it includes a variety of activities designed to educate them on a set of skills that will ultimately guide them to meet the labor market needs."
