A leading training institute is offering internationally recognised courses to supplement the Kingdom’s Bahrainisation drive at the same time as providing graduates with a stepping stone on their way to successful careers.
Oasis Training Centre, a professional training services provider based in Bahrain, has been operating since 2015 and continues to expand its portfolio, which incorporates a range of professional, technical, soft skills, English, Arabic and international certification courses.
As part of a national initiative to get the unemployed into the workforce, Tamkeen and the Ministry of Labour and Social Development are sponsoring a programme that helps unemployed Bahrainis to get recruited, trained and qualified by approved training providers.
This is where Oasis comes in, providing the training necessary to facilitate the readiness of employees without companies needing to spend time, effort and money searching aimlessly.
Dr Suzanne White, Oasis Managing Director, said: “Our English language courses are certified under the prestigious City & Guilds awarding body in the UK. Our course graduates not only benefit from international certifications, but their opportunities in the labour market also increase significantly with many employers acknowledging these internationally-certified courses and seeking out candidates with global qualifications.
“In addition, we offer industry-related, professional training programmes which equip working professionals and job-seekers alike with coveted skills and knowledge from UK awarding body certifications. These include awards and certificates from the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM), Institute of Risk Management (IRM), and Chartered Insurance Institute (CII).”
In essence, Oasis will hold a consultation period with a partner and establish their current Bahraini recruitment needs and unique requirements. Candidates are then sourced and screened according to these criteria and once a shortlist is selected, they meet with the client to discuss programme dates and content.
Oasis then trains the candidates on a customised curriculum to match their core job skills and competencies and, upon completion, candidates receive certificates and are offered employment by the client.
Furthermore, clients benefit from Tamkeen wage support over a three-year period.
Indeed, a number of graduates from Oasis have gone on to find employment or discover alternative, improved career paths as a result of its programmes and the experienced industry experts who facilitate them.
All courses are offered internationally, particularly in the greater GCC region, with a global network of expert trainers across a plethora of subjects.
Suzanne explained: “With local labour funding made available to enterprises and Bahraini employees to stimulate continuous professional development, we at Oasis are here to help our clients with strategic advice on the best options for optimum training and development results, and return on experience.”
Like a number of enterprises and individuals in the Kingdom, Oasis has been affected by the extraordinary events and circumstances brought on by the Covid-19 Coronavirus pandemic.
The team has adapted to enable more virtual learning options for enterprises and individuals, and has doubled-down on efforts to support clients with virtual learning suites to match their individual needs and circumstances both at this time and in the future.
Suzanne said: “We believe that resilience and creative teamwork will take us – and our valued learners and clients – through these challenging times.”
