The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation has launched online forms to help students pursue training courses in the private sector.

The free electronic form is available on the ministry's website (www.mohre.gov.ae) and its smartphone app, 'Wajjehni'. The move is in line with Decree No. 713 of 2016, issued by Saqr bin Ghobash Saeed Ghobash, Minister of Human Resources and Emiratisation, on July 14 to support work training in the private sector.

Aisha Belharfia, Director of the Labour Offices Department in Dubai, said in order to pursue a training course at a company in the private sector, "the company must first be cleared from any irregularities."

Applicants must be over 12 and less than 18 years old.

Students applying for 'Juvenile Work Permits' must be aged between 15 and 18 years, and applications for those can be found through Tas'heel service centres or via the ministry's smartphone application.

Training programmes are set for three months from the starting date, and the contract is to be submitted to the ministry for approval prior to signatures from both parties.

The ministry also said that an e-signature card is mandatory to process the company's request to enroll students.

How to apply

To apply, students must attach a copy of their passport, residency (non-nationals), a no objection letter from parents or guardians, personal photos and a signed agreement with the company.
