Employment and Employability

Bahrain Polytechnic’s concern does not finish when students complete their studies. It also extends to its graduates. The Polytechnic conducts periodic phone surveys to monitor graduates’ achievements with regard to their employment. Bahrain Polytechnic has followed this practice since it had its first batch of graduates and results to date are very encouraging. Our Career and Employment Centre continues to help our graduates in the process of obtaining employment.

Employability Skills

Bahrain Polytechnic missioned to prepare its graduates to be work ready in order to adapt to the economic dynamics of the local, regional and international market. We used the conceptual approach to define Employability at the institution and created a contextualized Employability framework. The position of the learners in the framework indicates the acknowledgment of the institution of the services that rotate around them.
