Internship programme targets children of ENOC staff

Published July 18th, 2010 - 10:01 GMT

Fifteen students joined their parents as interns at ENOC this summer as part of an internship programme titled 'A'ALAT ENOC' or 'ENOC Family', open for children, aged 15-18 years, of ENOC staff. The four-week summer internship will conclude on August 5.

The internship programme focuses on developing the students' soft and technical skills, and features courses on computer skills, problem solving, customer care and English language classes. They will also be assigned a mentor and will gain exposure to different departments and ENOC subsidiaries.

Saeed Abdullah Khoory, ENOC's Group Chief Executive, said: "As a company committed to the development of the UAE, we believe it is our responsibility to provide youngsters with real-life work skills that will help build their confidence. 'A'ALAT ENOC' goes one step further in bringing them closer to their families, thus helping promote work-life balance. Our unique internship programme is also a perfect way to offset the summer boredom by gaining valuable work experience and applying what is learnt in the classroom into practice."

ENOC recently launched a training programme for 15 special needs youngsters, 'ENOC Challenge IV'. The annual comprehensive training programme provides disadvantaged individuals with the unique opportunity to acquire critical professional skills and prepares them to join the workforce.
