A four to eight weeks internship programme at UAE Exchange, Taleem provides young Emiratis a platform to gain real-time work experience in the financial services sector and an opportunity to earn stipend while studying. The on-the-job training equips the young generation with the necessary skills required to build a career, develop confidence and communication abilities to face corporate challenges, and contribute to the nation’s economy and sustainable development. Around 60 Emirati students graduate every year from the UAE Exchange’s Taleem programme.
Speaking on the occasion, Abdel Kareem Alkayed, Country Head, UAE Exchange-UAE, said: “We have always aligned ourselves with the vision and efforts of the UAE Government towards Emiratisation and have been at the forefront in empowering the young Emirati generation by providing them opportunities to learn and grow. This award is a testament to that commitment and we thank the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation for recognising our Emiratisation programmes. And with the new legislation in place for Emiratisation, we reiterate our commitment to cultivate and nurture the national talent and contribute to the country’s sustainable national development.”
