Bahrain plans new project to support job-seekers
Manama, June 25, 2014
Bahrain has drawn up plans to ensure labour market stability in the medium and long-term.
Labour Minister and Supreme Council for Vocational Training chairman Jameel Humaidan said part of the plans pertains to vocational guidance for young job-seekers to assist them in choosing their professional future and ensure it matches their creativity and potential.
The minister was speaking as he patronised the first Youth Forum organised by the General Federation of Bahrain Trade Unions, in the presence of representatives from the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry, universities, training institutions and trade unions, said a report in the Gulf Daily News (GDN), our sister publication.
He said many graduates take up jobs that differ from their academic specialities, which is a waste of energy and budget.
He said success of the guidance programmes will boost youngsters' awareness of professional reality and promote development of establishments by attracting youngsters with creativity and potential.
The minister said the National Workforce Observatory project to be launched by the ministry will represent a key database for the labour market through which decision makers can study market indices and link them to educational and training output. - TradeArabia News Service
