The Development and Initial Operation of the Shuwaikh Industrial Training Centre. Kuwait. Technical Report No. 1.
International Labour Organisation, Geneva (Switzerland).
The report covers the technical cooperation given to the government of Kuwait by the International Labour Organization as part of a United Nations Development Program. Due to the unemployment rate of the Kuwaitis, the government of Kuwait decided to establish industrial vocational training facilities. The training center commenced activities on January 1, 1971, with buildings completed and the major part of the equipment delivered. In accordance with the plan of operation, a program of 1- or 2-year accelerated craft training (following 6-month preparatory courses) has been initiated in the 10 main trades for skilled entry-workers required by the manufacturing and service factor sectors of industry. For workers already employed in industry, a program of upgrading training courses to improve their occupational skills in the same 10 trade fields was instituted soon after the project commenced. Even though the main objectives of the project have been achieved, certain problems remain and are discussed in a summary of recommendations. Included are 12 appendixes of statistical data and related information. (Author/BP)
