Tamkeen to review key support schemes
Manama, December 23, 2013
Bahrain's labour fund Tamkeen has announced a comprehensive review of its 'conference attendance support' and Tarweej schemes.
The re-evaluation will focus on content and quality of events and activities supported under the two programmes.
More effective controls and standards will be put in place to guarantee maximum benefit to beneficiaries and ensure that the programmes achieve their set objectives, a statement by the labour fund authority said.
Tamkeen said the review will also factor in feedback received during consultation sessions held in October.
Applications for the conference attendance support scheme have been temporarily put on hold due to the exhaustion of the funds allocated to it for the current phase.
The date of resumption of the improved modified programme will be announced later. Around 6,500 Bahrainis have benefited from it.
Applications for 'Tarweej' however, would continue to be accepted during the review process.
"We are committed to respond to market needs and adapt to changes," Tamkeen chairman and acting chief executive Shaikh Mohammed bin Essa Al Khalifa said.
"We are fully focused on developing our operations with a view towards improving quality, focusing on clients, and achieving results."
The conference attendance support scheme aims at developing Bahrainis' skills and promotes the culture of continuous learning by enabling them to attend conferences, seminars and workshops in Bahrain.
Through such events, beneficiaries are expected to acquire new skills, gain expertise, and learn best international practices, with emphasis on personal skills like inter-personal communication, efficient leadership, positive attitudes and ethics, improved work environment and women empowerment.
'Tarweej' enables businesses to take part in local and international trade fairs and exhibitions which boost their growth and development by expanding their customer base, learning latest market developments, and building business relationships.-TradeArabia News Service
