Alba training offers work experience
Manama, August 12, 2010
Aluminium Bahrain (Alba), one of the largest aluminium smelters in the world, is offering Bahrainis practical work experience in its two-month annual summer training programme.
Alba’s training programme, which is in two batches, provides high school graduates, university students and Bahrain Training Institute trainees with a platform to enhance their professional skills by working in Alba for four weeks during their summer break.
The first-batch of 30 trainees recently completed their training, and now the second batch is in the process of completing their training by the end of August.
The trainees are being deployed in different departments throughout Alba as part of their training programme.
“The Alba annual summer training programme offers young Bahraini students with the opportunity of gaining theoretical and practical insight into working in a large industrial organisation like Alba,” said Laurent Schmitt, Alba’s chief executive.
“It also enables them to transform their summer break into a productive experience that will prove useful in the future course of their careers.”
“While we would certainly look forward to more young Bahrainis considering the aluminium industry as a viable career option, nevertheless, it is our desire and hope that these trainees eventually become successful professionals in whatever industry they join,” he added.
Some of the departments involved in the programme are internal audit, accounting, carbon, casthouse, marketing, environment and others.
Apart from their regular work in these departments, the students will also receive training in business ethics and enterprise in action, environmental issues and safety, interview skills and writing their CV. – TradeArabia News Service
