Tamkeen launches new skill development programme

MANAMA, June 10, 2018

Bahrain's labour fund Tamkeen has announced the launch of the third edition of “Intelaaq” program which started its first batch in April.

The programme is part of a partnership agreement signed by Tamkeen and the Bahrain-based Middle East and North Africa (Mena) Center for Investment.

The initiative is part of a co-ordinated effort to strengthen and develop the capabilities of Bahrainis and companies in the private sector. It is one of the novel initiatives from Tamkeen to boost the skills and capabilities of Bahraini students and graduates at a professional level by giving them experience in highly professional and specialised fields.

The programme targets about 300 outstanding university students and recent graduates of different local and international universities, said the statement from Tamkeen.

Participants will be joining in consecutive batches this year which will give them the opportunity to work as professional consultants on real projects at participating companies based in Bahrain, for a period of three months, it added.

Welcoming the specialised programme, Tamkeen's CEO Dr Ebrahim Mohammed Janahi, said it offers tremendous professional value in a framework of innovation and professionalism to enhance the performance and productivity of the organization.

He pointed out that it targets analytical thinking skills on a consultative level and opens growth opportunity to all majors of university students and graduates involved besides enriching their knowledge by increasing the level of creativity and analytical skills.

The program provides students with full support to enhance their expertise by working in integrated teams under the supervision and guidance of a highly qualified expert and consultant hired by Mena for this purpose, said Janahi.

Each team will provide innovative and practical solutions to actual challenges faced by the participating companies, he added.

Tamkeen said the participating students will make complete and professional recommendations to the client, and their performance will be evaluated and ranked accordingly.

The 12-week programme is designed to train students in various skills that are required to do their work effectively, such as team work, critical thinking, punctuality, and professional and high-level work ethics.

Students will also benefit from the experience of business community leaders through a series of workshops by experts from different fields, who will be hosted within the "Intelaaq" program, in addition to organizing networking events, its added.-TradeArabia News Service
