Hundreds of Bahraini job seekers and graduates fresh out of secondary school will take part in a summer training programme involving the construction industry. The scheme is being conducted by the country’s Ministry of Labour & Social Affairs and the Bahrain Training Institute (BTI). The seven-week programme kicks off next week and is due to finish on the 8th September. The participants will cover different subjects such as construction, mechanical work, computer science and automobile repair works. Participants have signed up at all five governorates, which are helping the ministry co-ordinate the programme in order to achieve the maximum benefits to all of the graduates so that they can enter the job market better qualified. The institute can accommodate a total of 775 job seeking students. As well as the specialist courses themselves, trainees will also be given work ethics and attitude classes in order to equip the graduates with all of the tools to enable them to enter the job market and be immediately employable. Mohammed Dirbas, BTI director said that the programme also hopes to enlighten students with the basic skills they will need in their chosen industry as well as the importance of upgrading their knowledge to achieve higher positions within a company. “The training programme begins on July 24. We already have more than 700 students signed up and we hope to have more students this time,” said Dr Majid Al Alawi, minister of Labour & Social Affairs.
