MPL Launches Internship Program for Students

Maldives Ports Limited (MPL) has recently launched an internship program tailored for secondary and higher secondary students, aiming to offer them valuable skills and real-world work experience in the port industry. Facilitated by MPL’s Learning and Development Department (LDD), the initiative kicked off on Sunday and is set to continue until January 4th.

An orientation session for the participating students was conducted, during which MPL’s CEO, Mohamed Wajeeh, underscored the significance of involving young individuals in careers related to ports. He expressed MPL’s commitment to supporting the professional growth of youth in this sector.

Wajeeh presented an exciting opportunity for the interns, stating, “Participants in this program have the chance to secure permanent positions within MPL. They can also pursue further education while being employed, with the company covering expenses. Our commitment is to encourage youth participation in port-related fields.”

Currently, the program has 13 enrolled students who are gaining hands-on training in various areas, including engine repair and maintenance, carpentry, power generation and distribution, high-voltage systems and electrical service, graphic design, copywriting, civil engineering/surveying, architectural drafting, and the fabrication of brass impellers.

To ensure a comprehensive learning experience, each intern is paired with a mentor responsible for guiding and instructing them throughout the program. This personalized mentorship approach aims to enhance the practical skills and understanding of the port industry for the participating students.
