The Sultanate’s National Centre for Employment (NCE) has announced that thousands of Omanis will be trained for the purpose of employment during 2020-2021.

In 2019, the NCE was established with the aim to employ the national manpower. Therefore, this comes as part of the centre’s objectives of providing more jobs to local job seekers, and it will coordinate with other economic sectors to generate employment opportunities.

A statement released by the NCE said: “according to the Fund’s plan, 10,000 persons will be trained during 2020-2021, with an amount of RO 26.8 million.”

It is worth mentioning that the National Training Fund was established in 2017 pursuant to the Royal Decree No. 48/2016. This was done in order to bridge the skills gap between education and job market needs through human capacity-building and as part of the government’s policy to enhance the skills of Omani job-seekers.

The Fund has since then provided 9110 job opportunities under Training linked with Employment Scheme.

“A number of 3310 trainees have already been graduated while 5800 trainees are still under training. The cost of the training, conducted by the Fund, amounted to RO 27.3 million by the end of 2019,” the statement from NCE read.
