Doha, August 31 (QNA) – The Bedaya Center for Entrepreneurship and Career Development (Bedaya Center), a joint initiative by Qatar Development Bank and Silatech, staged a summer training programme for 23 young Qatari recruits and interns from Qatar Chemical Company (Q-Chem) for the second year running. The programme was held over eight days at the Qatar Independent Technical School (QITS). Bedaya Center won Q-Chem’s tender again to carry out the training programme that helps young recruits “trainees” adapt to their new work environment and lay the foundations for a bright career future.
The programme included several key, youth-related training areas such as career planning, creating a curriculum vitae, learning how to conduct a job interview, handling staff personality differences and how this affects the process of building a work team and enhancing their skills. Also the programme covered time management, problem solving, effective communication, public speaking, influencing leadership skills and how to make a positive change and set goals. In addition to the workshops, Bedaya Center offered career guidance sessions for all trainees, to help them set clear future goals identify their strengths and leverage them, and create a career plan for future training and development.
“At Bedaya Center, we are always keen to partner with national institutions to develop the skills of Qatari young people working for them, in line with our mission and objectives. This is the second time we have cooperated with Q-Chem, as oil & gas is one of Qatar’s vital industrial sectors. Our programme helps to develop the skills of those who have recently entered the industry and prepares them to be the sector’s future leaders,” said Hamad Al Kubaisi, Bedaya Center’s board member.
“We’re pleased to have partnered with Bedaya to conduct ‘Life Skills’ summer training for our trainess and students. This is part of Q-Chem’s ongoing efforts to support our commitment of Total Quality Qatarization. We believe that such trainings enrich and strengthen students’ development and progress. The two week classroom training is followed by two days of Q-Chem plant orientation which is critical to understanding QChem’s Values, our commitment to safety, our employees, the environment, and the community in which we operate. Further, the students gain a keen understanding on how Q-Chem conducts business,” said Michael Zeglin, Q-Chem Deputy General Manager. (QNA)
Beirut, August 31 (QNA) – Qatari Abdulaziz Al Kuwari finished third in the 37th Rally of Lebanon which was won by Nicolas Amiouni of Lebanon and ended Roger Feghali’s 10-year run.
It is worthy noting that Roger Feghali was out since day2 due to an accident.
Though 31 cars were registered and 30 actually started the rally, some of the region’s best drivers, including championship leader Nasser Al Attiyah of Qatar and the UAE’s Sheikh Khalid Al Qassimi, Sheikh Abdullah Al Qassimi and the entire Abu Dhabi Racing team, have skipped the round over security concerns.
Local star Abdo Feghali had shot into the early lead after topping the Spectator Stage on Thursday and then winning the first stage on Friday evening.
However, Feghali picked up a 30sec penalty on the following stage and was pushed down to third overall, with Eddy Abou Karam inheriting the lead.
Abou Karam then slid down the order on Friday’s final stage which moved Ayoub into the lead, 16sec ahead of Amiouni going into day two yesterday. (QNA)
