Microsoft ICT offer for female graduates
Doha, January 30, 2008
Female graduates are being offered the opportunity to learn more about Information Technology (IT) through a special training program organised by Microsoft.
The training program has been introduced with the co-operation of Internal Security Force (ISF) specifically for new female Qatari graduates to support the government’s push to develop the skills and ambitions of the female Qatari workforce, said a top government official.
“Our aim is to empower Qatari women and develop their skills to engage them in building the technology infrastructure in the ISF. We welcome Microsoft’s initiative and thank them for their continuous support and cooperation with the Internal Security Force,” said First Lt. Jassim Abdulrahim Al-Sayed, IT Manager, Internal Security Force (ISF).
“The project is deeply important to the country, providing better services for all, while at the same time empowering women and offering them greater employment opportunities,” said Mohammad Hammoudi, country manager, Microsoft Qatar.
According to Hammoudi, the female graduates will be able to complete the course in four-months, on a full-time basis.
Employees who complete their courses will receive certification which ultimately enables them to become certified developers, he said. The training program begins this week.-TradeArabia News Service
