MANAMA, January 28, 2015

Bahrain’s National Institute of Industrial training (NIIT) will promote their Fanniya Apprenticeship Program at the upcoming Gulf Industry Fair 2015, the leading industrial B2B exhibition in Northern Gulf.

The Gulf Industry Fair, being organised by Hilal Conferences and Exhibition (HCE), will run from February 3 to 5, 2015 at the Bahrain International Exhibition Centre. It is being held under the patronage of the Prime Minister of Bahrain, HRH Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa.

The Bahraini institute designs special programs to provide knowledge, skills, and understanding to those seeking a career in the kingdom's industrial empire.

The institute has already developed more than 10 successful programs that targets Bahraini males seeking professional training and employment in the industrial/technical fields, said a senior official.

In line with its strategy to empowering women in the industrial field, NIIT has launched a new series of initiatives called “Fanniya Apprenticeship Programs.”

Under this scheme, Bahraini women will be provided training in three different sectors - Automotive, Telecommunication and Engineering. Following the successful completion of the training, these women will be employed in industrial or semi-industrial units, stated Ali Al Noory, the business development manager of NIIT.

"NIIT plans to, for the first version of these programs, provide employment opportunities within the automotive industry for 60 Bahraini women who will undergo a special automotive training program for six months," he added.

Jubran Abdulrahman, the managing director of HCE, said: "The Gulf Industry Fair encourages the up skilling of future generations of the workforce. Fanniya is a progressive strategy in keeping with goals of the industry show."

The NIIT offers a range of programs which are externally accredited by different awarding bodies for both the employees and job seekers from different industries.

Apart from Fanniya Apprenticeship Programs, NIIT is offering various training services and programs for companies within Gulf Industry Fair 2015.-TradeArabia News Service
