In April 2018, the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation in partnership with the Ministry of Education and UAE universities launched Tawteen 360 – an initiative that aims to encourage UAE national students and youth to pursue careers in the private sector.
This multi-partner initiative will include opportunities for UAE National youth to build their capabilities and skills through awareness activities, career counselling workshops, and enabling programs such as Wajehni, MOHRE’s new internship program. The Wajehni portal directly links UAE national students with internships and summer job opportunities in the private sector. It also supports career counsellors in bridging the gap between the academic experience and the requirements of the job market. Moreover, the program supports companies’ efforts in listing opportunities, accessing young UAE national talents and building their future networks, thus contributing to long term Tawteen goals through partnerships and collaboration.
