DERASAT to launch skills training programme for youth
Bahrain Centre for Strategic, International and Energy Studies (Derasat) will launch a training programme in a bid to sharpen young people’s skills and empower them in the areas of research, application and innovation. “The training programme comes in response to the Representative of His Majesty the King for Charity Works and Youth Affairs, National Security Adviser and President of the Supreme Council for Youth and Sports HH Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa’s programme initiatives,” said DERASAT Board of Trustees Chairman Dr Shaikh Abdullah bin Ahmed Al Khalifa announcing the scheme.
“Our programme has been designed to empower young people in the area of research, monitoring and analysis,” Dr Shaikh Abdullah said. “Those who will enrol in the programme will have the opportunity to raise their skill and knowledge level and become ready to enter the labour market. Young people are the vein of any society and its drive engine for development and construction,” he added. Dr Shaikh Abdullah pointed out that the programme is in line with the Royal vision which positions the youth at the top of Bahrain’s priorities, stating that the Bahraini youth have set a great example for their counterparts thanks to the support and backing exerted to them by HM King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa.
