Workers building stadiums for the FIFA 2022 World Cup Qatar will soon begin a bespoke training programme designed to introduce them to life in Qatar, improve their technical capabilities and enhance job performance as well as increase productivity and safety. The programme has been fostered by the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC), the organisation responsible for building the infrastructure for the FIFA 2022 World Cup, in partnership with renowned training and safety specialists Qatar International Safety Centre (QISC). 

The SC recently signed a one-year partnership deal with QISC to pilot the training programme for workers currently engaged in WC-related projects. As part of the first phase roll-out, workers will be offered a smooth transition into working and living in Qatar by imparting them basic knowledge such as how to use an ATM, key English and Arabic phrases and how to get around Qatar. They will also receive refresher tutorials on health and safety standards, the SC's Workers' Welfare Standards and grievance-redressal mechanisms, as well as other SC initiatives and programmes they can benefit from.

The courses aim to improve productivity, enhance the skillsets required by workers on the job and better equip workers for future careers. With more than 15 years' experience, the QISC will deliver the training courses in English, Hindi, Urdu, Tagalog and Malayalam, catering for the diverse range of nationalities on SC projects. Various options of daytime, evening, weekday and weekend courses will be available to accommodate the working hours of SC workers. The courses will be delivered in QISC's state-of-the-art training centre and on SC construction and accommodation sites.
