Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry recently launched the annual training summer camp for high school and college students under the theme “starting with you”, one of its Sharjah Training and Development Center’s initiatives that seeks to provide an environment for training and gaining knowledge, involving 20 students.
That program aims to train students by utilizing job and vocational knowledge and getting them acquainted with tasks being undertaken by the Chamber’s staff members at the different departments and sections, in line with a supervisory program, as the Chamber is keen to instill the concept of social responsibility in them and prepare them to join the workforce and hone their skills to complete their duties to their best abilities and to become acquainted with the workplace by practicing different roles of work for a specified time.
The orientation meeting that was attended by Mohammed Amin, Assistant Director General for the Business and Communication Sector, and Mariam Al Shamsi, Assistant Director General for the Support Services Sector, who said that organizing this summer camp comes under the initiative “starting with you” that was started several years ago to facilitate training youth on job performance at the work place and making them aware of what’s required for effective performance, which can be done by gaining skills and being ready for the future in different job fields that enable them to take responsibility, show their creativity and invest their energy in the work place.
Al Shamsi added that the Sharjah Training and Development Center at the human resources department of Sharjah Chamber, in line with the directives of HE Abdullah Al Oweis, Sharjah Chamber’s Chairman, is keen to run this training program in line with the stipulated standards and regulations that take into account the educational level of every candidate wishing to join, adherence to the full-time work day and taking responsibility to learn and complete the tasks delegated to them.
Al Shamsi stressed that the program is being run by experienced staff who will assist students and spare no effort in helping them and giving them advice, to motivate them to gain the skills they’ll need to fill job vacancies that suit their abilities and office skills in the coming years.
Ibrahim Al Jarwan, Human Resources manager, then took the students on a tour of the different departments and sections of the Chamber during which he gave a presentation of each department’s role in assisting the Chamber’s members, and he pledged to provide all the assistance needed to make this training summer camp a success for all students.
