Ta3mal Employability Portal
In 2012, Silatech and Microsoft launched Ta3mal.com, the region’s first employability portal that helps youth and job seekers find support to transition into the world of work. Available in Arabic, English and French, the online platform offers online access to career guidance, soft-skills, e-learning as well as jobs and internships opportunities and entrepreneurship training. The initiative relies on local partners to provide specialized content and direct services to youth and job seekers.
In addition to a regional version of the portal, there are currently local portals in eight countries, including Egypt, Qatar, Iraq, Tunisia, Morocco, Algeria, Palestine and Lebanon. In each of these countries, the localized portal is connected to physical career centers that include innovative programs complementing the services available on the portal. Ta3mal centers deliver a range of services and events including trainings and workshops, in addition to job search assistance.
In 2011, Silatech partnered with Mindmill to launch Tamheed, Silatech’s career guidance program. The program includes online psychometric assessments, a career advising framework, and training and capacity building for career advisors. Available in Arabic, English and French, youth workers can be trained to become Tamheed advisors in less than a week, creating a large pool of certified advisors offering personalized advice based on scientific reports. Employers can use the results of psychometric assessments in selecting candidates, and match skills with the right jobs and internships.
Train-to-place programs provide the full-cycle of youth training and job placement, usually in specific industries or sectors. We work with training providers to equip youth with the technical skills that employers are looking to fill the entry-level vacancies they have.
