The second edition of “Tawteen 360 Student Forum” concluded its activities on Tuesday at the Abu Dhabi Convention Centre, in the presence of Major General Staff Pilot Sheikh Ahmed bin Tahnoun bin Mohammed Al Nahyan, Chairman of the National and Reserve Service Authority, and HE Nasser bin Thani Al Hamli, Minister of Human Resources & Emiratisation, who inspected events and met with national service recruits participating in the forum.

Major General Staff Pilot Sheikh Ahmed bin Tahnoun and HE Nasser Al Hamli attended a lecture delivered by Alia Al Mansouri, the winner of the first gene and space research competition conducted by NASA. Al Mansouri highlighted her practical experience and shared her insights that gained the admiration and captivated the attention of participating students.

The three-day forum was attended by 4,000 secondary school and higher education Emirati students and 1,000 national service recruits who benefited greatly from their engagement in the event.

The forum featured 44 sessions on discovering capacity, 23 sessions dedicated to highlighting success stories of UAE nationals working in the private sector and 64 training workshops. During the event, 10 private companies offered training and summer job opportunities, while five educational institutes offered scholarships.

In his speech marking the closing of the forum, HE Nasser Al Hamli, said: “The impressive interaction by students and national service recruits demonstrates the awareness of Emirati youth and their eagerness to prove themselves and harness opportunities available in building their career plans and shaping their future career.”

He said the Ministry will continue to hold the forum, which is part of the “National Vocational Guidance Programme”, adopted by the Ministry to raise the awareness of Emirati students and youth about the importance of working in the private sector and highlight the benefits it provides. The Ministry will help students through professional guidance and empower them with the skills and job requirements they need to work in the private sector.”

HE Al Hamli also highlighted the role of the family in guiding and helping the students plan their career path and future. He stressed that the Ministry is keen to conduct workshops tailored specifically for parents, with the aim of educating them about the important role they play in shaping the career and future of their children.

HE Al Hamli praised the Education and Human Resources Council for sponsoring the forum and the strategic partnership with the Ministry of Education and the private sector. He also lauded the partnership between the Ministry and the National and Reserve Service Council in organising the third day of the forum.

During the closing ceremony of the forum, HE Nasser Al Hamli honoured 86 partners in the public and private sectors, including government entities, universities, colleges, schools and private companies.

The third and final day of the forum focused on six main areas that aimed at guiding, training and empowering national service requites to work in the private sector. The participating recruits engaged in 10 workshops on career guidance and evaluation that aimed to equip participants with the tools and skills they need to succeed in job interviews, and teach them how to write a professional resume and set their career plans and goals.

The participating recruits also engaged in 20 training workshops that highlighted the code of ethics and professional conduct that employees working in the private sector should abide by, as well as communication and teamwork skills, cooperation, innovation and analytical thinking.

They also participated in seven sessions on awareness and motivation where a number of young Emirati men and women shared their successful work experiences in the private sector, and highlighted the latest job market trends and the advantages of working in the private sector.

The national service recruits were introduced to scholarship opportunities, majors and academic programmes, where five universities offered scholarships for students. The participants also learned about future jobs and professions.

The third edition of the “Tawteen 360 Student Forum” is slated to take place on November 6 and 7 in Al Ain city.
