UMEM Ability’10 courses opening in May will provide employment to 1,500 people. TOBB President M. Rifat Hisarcıklıoğlu stated that 115 UMEM Ability’10 courses opening in the May 2015 term will provide vocational training to approximately 1,500 people and those successful will find employment at the end of the course.​

Hisarcıklıoğlu said in regards to the subject, “115 UMEM Ability’10 courses have been opened to provide employment to 1,500 people through the cooperation of TOBB, the Ministry of Labor and Social Security, İŞKUR General Directorate, the Ministry of National Education and TOBB University of Economy and Technology.

Highest number of courses opening in May was to be found in the Bursa province, followed in order by Bayburt, Afyonkarahisar, Ankara, Iğdır and Şanlıurfa. Most requested fields by employers were woven garment machinery operators, call center employees, waiters (service personnel), automotive assemblers and footwear manufacturers. Additionally, Insurance Personnel courses were opened it Adana, Gaziantep and İzmir in line with our successful project in the insurance sector.”

Hisarcıklıoğlu said, “The most significant issue facing the UMEM Ability’10 project is lack of attendees to some of the courses we open. Attendees are able to be paid minimum wage during their on-site training during their training in the UMEM Ability’10 project courses. This increases the previous daily allowance of 25 TRY to 36.5 TRY. I invite all businesspeople and unemployed to take part in this project.”
