Training 2000 partners with ECITB on Engineering Construction International Work Experience Scheme

September 1, 2015

We were recently delighted to offer some of Bahrain’s top students experience in the engineering construction industry through a new programme in partnership with the Engineering Construction Industry Training Board (ECITB).

The scheme saw 36 students from the Nasser Vocational Training Centre (NVTC) in Bahrain take part in two-weeks of intensive training which combined practical work experience with site visits.

Steve Gray, chief executive of Training 2000, said: “We were delighted to be asked to work alongside the ECITB on this project and we’re excited to welcome the students from the Nasser Vocational Training Centre.

“The opportunity to use our facility, meet with employers and learn new engineering constrcuction techniques will be something the students can really benefit from.”

The three organisations developed a curriculum which aimed to give the students the opportunity to learn new English language skills, understand more about the engineering construction industry and visit companies to gain first-hand experiences from qualified engineers at places such as Rolls Royce Derby and Royal Mail Preston.

The students also enjoyed some free time in the local area, taking trips to museums, Skipton Castle and cities such as Manchester and Blackpool.

Tony Featherstone, ECITB director of international and commercial operations, said: “We are really delighted to be able to offer this pioneering international work experience programme, and that NVTC students will be the first to take part.

“This is an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for these students to see world class operations first hand.”
