Tamkeen Launches 2nd Edition of “Intelaaq” Programme with Mena Centre for Investment

Programme offers university students the opportunity to learn business consultancy skills

Tamkeen, in partnership with Mena Centre for Investment, announced the launch of the latest edition of the Intelaaq Programme. Both sides signed an agreement to launch this year’s edition of the student business consultancy programme.

The initiative targets university students studying in their third and fourth years in addition to recent university graduates and offers them the chance to gain business consultancy skills and equip them for their future careers in the field.

The programme falls under Tamkeen’s Work Readiness objective, which aims to develop the skillset of Bahrain’s future workforce.

Intelaaq features professional consultants from different local companies train, mentor, counsel and teach the 100 registered programme participants valuable business skills to succeed as business consultants for local firms and organisations. In order to be eligible, applicants must be Bahraini students in their third or fourth years at university.

Commenting on the announcement, Chief Operating Officer at Tamkeen, Mrs. Amal Al Kooheji, said: “Tamkeen has always valued investing in developing the skills of Bahrain’s youth as they become part of the country’s workforce and in turn drive the private sector forward in its continued growth. We are very pleased at the overwhelmingly positive reception the first edition of Intelaaq received and hope to continue this success with the second edition.”

For more information about the programme, or to apply, interested parties may visit Tamkeen’s official website www.Tamkeen.bh, email support@tamkeen.bh or call 17382716.
