The Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development organized a special workshop for sector skills councils in partnership with the education and training system entities.

The workshop, which was held in the presence of His Excellency Dr. Ahmed Al-Zahrani, the Deputy Minister for Skills and Training, representatives of the Ministry and entities of the education and training system, heads of sector skills councils, and international experts, aims to strengthen the partnership between sector skills councils and the education and training system by sharing potential areas of cooperation between the councils and the system, with a focus on the needs and requirements of each sector. Sharing sector councils' experiences on global skills was one of the workshop's themes.

The Ministry's top training and skill initiatives were reviewed by Dr. Ahmed Al-Zahrani, Undersecretary for Skills and Training, in collaboration with the appropriate authorities. He also emphasized the significance of sector councils in fostering the growth of skills and professions, and establishing national professional standards that help produce results that are primarily in line with the demands of the labor market.

The workshop and similar initiatives are an extension of the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development's efforts to strengthen collaboration between councils, and other organizations involved in the education and training system, including (the Ministry of Education, the Education and Training Evaluation Authority, the General Corporation for Technical and Vocational Training, the Human Resources Development Fund, and the Colleges of Excellence Company).

It is worth noting that the Ministry intends to activate and manage 12 sector skills councils, develop 12 frameworks for technical and specialized sector skills, include 2,000 skills, and establish and develop national standards and professionalism for at least 300 professions and tracks by 2025.
