The “Tawteen 360 Student Forum” welcomed over a thousand national university students throughout the proceedings of the first day which was launched in “Expo Center Sharjah” today (Sunday) and will last for three days (until Tuesday). The forum is patronized by the Education and Human Resources Council and organised by the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation MoHRE in partnership with the Ministry of Education. 

“Tawteen 360” is organised in the framework of “the National Programme for Career Guidance and Counselling” launched by MoHRE in order to raise awareness among national students and youths about the value of working in the private sector and the most prominent advantages provided to its cadres. It also provides them with career guidance and empowers them in order to promote their employability in this strategic important sector.

Her Excellency Fatima Al Houti, Acting Assistant Undersecretary of Human Resources Development at MoHRE, stated that “the Tawteen 360 Student Forum in Sharjah is organized under MoHRE’S strategy aiming to reach national students and youths all over the country, particularly in light of the remarkable success achieved by the forum in its earlier editions organised in Abu Dhabi, al Ain, Dubai and Fujairah.

She further clarified that the first day of the forum witnessed considerable interaction by the participating university students who took part in 43 activities organised in 6 stations and major tracks including 10 workshops on professional guidance, 26 workshops on training, as well as 7 sessions on awareness and motivation with the participation of 9 speakers who presented their working experience in the private sector and 15 trainers who provided guidance and training programs to the participating students.

During registration, the participating students received a booklet titled “Student Passport”, which contained the required information and guidelines about the six phases they will go through in the forum in addition to a participation card.

In the station on “Exploring Talents”, the students took part in workshops on career guidance and sessions to evaluate their potential and competencies and provide them with the tools needed to choose their specialisations, career tracks as well as professional future. They were also educated about the skills of writing a CV, job interviews, preparing a career roadmap, evaluating skills and career goals.

They also participated in the training station which aimed at consolidating and promoting labour market skills, entrepreneurship and self-employment.

The station on “Awareness and Motivation” presented the success stories of national cadres working in the private sector and demonstrated the regional and global best practices in skills and human resources development, future careers, as well as the advantages of working in the private sector.

The students were also introduced to summer internships and job opportunities provided by certain private sector companies during the job fair which continued throughout the forum.

MoHRE presented to the participating students “'Wajehni' application which works as a communication channel between students, on the one hand, and educational and private institutions, on the other hand, linking students to internships and summer job opportunities.

The forum will resume the proceedings of the second day tomorrow, Monday, which will focus on the participation of secondary school female students.
