As part of continuous efforts to develop the skills sets of Bahraini youth in order to position them as the employees of choice, Tamkeen renewed its partnership with the National Society for the Support of Education and Training on the Career Expo. The National Society organises a career expo every year in cooperation with a number of public and private organisations.
This is Tamkeen's second participation as a strategic partner in the career expo, which will be held this year from 6 to 8 November at the Bahrain International Exhibition and Convention Center. The two parties had their first strategic partnership on the 2010 career expo, which was a great success. Tamkeen's participation in this annual event encouraged a number of companies and enterprises to participate in the expo under the Tarweej scheme - one of Tamkeen's Enterprise Development Support (EDS) schemes – whereby Tamkeen supports the participation of enterprises in events by covering up to 80% of the participation fees.
Tamkeen's EDS programme includes five schemes: the Business Development Scheme (Istishara) to assist in the strategic planning and determining vision and goals of the organisation, the Technical Assistance Scheme (Techania) to provide support for the purchase of latest enterprise-related tools and equipment, the Quality Management Systems Scheme (Jawda) to assist in the design and application of world-class quality standards. In addition to the Growth Assistance Scheme (Tarweej) to support enterprises' participation in local and international events and exhibitions, and finally the Marketing Assistance Scheme (Tasweeq) to provide support in the design and implementation of effective marketing and communications strategies.
On this occasion, Tamkeen would like to invite Bahraini enterprises wishing to participate in this year's career expo and who meet the eligibility criteria to benefit from this opportunity and contact us on phone number: 17565393, or email us: [email protected] For specific information about the expo, contact the Society for the Support of Education and Training by calling 17556411 or contacting through [email protected] In addition, Tamkeen and the National Society for the Support for Education will hold a join-orientation session on the 3rd of September between 10:30am and 1:30 PM at The K Hotel in Juffair.
The strategic partnership between Tamkeen and the National Society for the Support of Education and Training goes far beyond the annual career expo. The two parties exchange expertise and share information on the labour market, especially in terms of skills gap, an issue on which the National Society focuses to contribute to Tamkeen's efforts to bridge this gap. For years the National Society has been executing several academic and professional guidance programmes and holding several workshops to train jobseekers across the Kingdom.
