Final training for Israel jobs starts today
Feb 25, 2016-
Nepali caregivers selected to work in Israel are beginning their final training on Thursday before leaving for their foreign jobs.
The Department of Foreign Employment said the successful applicants have completed all pre-departure requirements, including health check-ups. DoFE officials said the workers would receive training from an Israeli agency at the Sahara Care Centre, Bhaktapur.
According to the department, a total of 60 caregivers including 11 men ranging from 25 to 45 years of age would leave for Israel on completion of the training. The candidates were chosen from a list of 139 applicants who met the requirements related to education, training, age and height. They had also taken a language test.
These caregivers will be the first lot of workers to go to Israel through a government-to-government channel since the host country stopped hiring Nepali caregivers sent by recruitment agencies in April 2009.
Under the new initiative, aspiring workers will have to pay a maximum of Rs100,000 in expenses including air ticket, health examination, insurance and welfare fund contribution.
Israel is a popular job destination for Nepali women due to lucrative pay, safe working environment and low recruitment cost. A Nepali caregiver earns at least Rs100,000 each month in Israel.
