BIHR signs agreement with SCTR

The Specific Council for Training in Retail (SCTR) signed a specialized Training Agreement with Bahrain Institute of Hospitality and Retail (BIHR). This agreement with BIHR, an ISO 9000-2001 certified hospitality and retail training provider, comes in lieu of SCTR’s policy to empower Bahrainis in the retail sector.

As per the agreement, 30 Bahrainis, who shall be selected by the council, will undergo training at BIHR which culminates in a ‘Diploma in Retail’ from the prestigious ‘Australian Retail Association’. The course is designed for a duration of nine months and will have two batches of 15 students each. Under the agreement, 15 selected diploma holders will also have the chance to receive advanced training in the field of leadership and communication.

Amal Almoayyed, Chairperson for the Specific Council for Training in Retail, said, “This (agreement) is in line with the government policies aimed at enhancing the capabilities of Bahrainis, making them the first choice of prospective employers in the retail sector, which is a big contributor to national income and creation of jobs. We have chose BIHR for their strong capabilities and for their well equipped campus which is the best place for training.”

She also stressed the value of training in enhancing knowledge and skills of workers in the sector, and its role in the creation of competitive opportunities for Bahrainis both at a local and international level.

BIHR Managing Director Hatim Dadabai, enthusiastic about the agreement, said the mutually beneficial partnership would help BIHR in helping to position Bahrain as a centre of excellence in retail and hospitality management.

“We are committed to meeting the needs of the hospitality and retail industry by providing highly trained individuals to deliver benchmark standards of managerial competence in hospitality management,” he added.

BIHR, founded in 1999, is a part of the Abbas Dadabai Group set up to meet the needs of the hospitality and tourism industry. BIHR has a state-of-the-art campus in Manama and its facilities include training kitchens and restaurants, a front office and housekeeping laboratory, a resource centre and state of the art information technology including campus-wide wireless facilities.

With sister colleges in Saudi Arabia with other partners in India, Oman and Pakistan, it is the only one of its kind in the Kingdom of Bahrain to offer student visas.
