The Labour Fund Tamkeen signed a partnership agreement with UpGradelle Cs, a French consulting cabinet focusing on digital transformations particularly in systems engineering and enterprise architecture for industrial fields, to provide Tech-Based training and international professional internship opportunities for Bahrainis at UpGradelle-AMVALOR R&D unit in France.

As part of Tamkeen’s Global Ready Talent programme, 10 Bahraini students from local universities will launch their engineering and ICT careers through specialized and on-thejob training.

Young Bahrainis participating in this programme will immerse themselves in Industry 4.0 innovation, tackling projects that encompass process automation, cyber-physical system design, digital twin mock-up creation, and AR/VR modeling for the aerospace, automotive, and energy sectors.

Under the expert guidance of UpGradelle and AMVALOR teams, participants will refine their skills and contribute to groundbreaking advancements in their respective fields. Tamkeen will cover the costs of the programme and expenses related to the on-thejob training period in France for the students who qualify.

Maha Abdulhameed Mofeez, Tamkeen’s Chief Executive stated: “This collaboration bridges the gap between theoretical education and the practical application of engineering best practices, providing the trainees with the advanced skills they need to excel in international job markets.” She continued: ”Participants will get exposure to international best practices applied within their field of expertise, expand their professional networks, and gain the required knowledge to become specialized in their fields." UpGradelle Co-founder and CEO, Nesrine Beldi Miro Padovani added: “Tamkeen’s support offers young Bahrainis a unique opportunity to acquire new and emerging skills, allowing them stay up to date with the latest international trends in their respective fields.”
