Muscat – The Ministry of Education has started a five-day long training programme in managing sports events and tournaments at Al Amal Club in Muscat on Sunday.
The training programme, which will continue till Thursday, is being provided by the Directorate General of Administrative Affairs and the Department of Training and Rehabilitation, in cooperation with the Omani School Sports Federation and the Ocean Institute.
‘The implementation of this training programme comes in light of the increase in the number of events organised annually by the sports committees in the governorates,’ MoE stated.
‘Around hundred sports events are organised across all governorates, which require specialists for managing these events. The programme targets 34 employees from the Office of the Omani School Sports Federation to provide them with effective management skills and accurate planning.’
Participants in the programme will obtain necessary qualification to work in the management of sports events, through several themes, including methods of organising, evaluating, financial and account management, management of sponsorship, financiers, designers, suppliers, stakeholders and the public, and attracting, managing and training employees and volunteers to work in sporting events, marketing sports events, and managing risks related to sports events.
