Jordan’s vision for employment and Technical and Vocational Education and Training (E-TVET) is that it should facilitate the employment of the Jordanian workforce and contribute to the development of Jordan’s human capital based on the principles of lifelong learning.
The main goal of the TVET reform strategy is to increase employment and reduce the country’s dependence on expatriate labour. It also aims to enhance TVET’s social image and to upgrade the quality and relevance of its training to labour market requirements. Strategies to meet the TVET vision include job creation in new emerging industries (for example, renewable energy), seeking internationally accredited certification for technical and vocational education, and career guidance that is effectively acting as an additional bridge between VET programmes and the world of work.
As part of British Council Jordan’s ongoing commitment to skills development across the country, 2 international skills partnerships are available for funding. The focus of the partnerships is renewable energy and careers guidance and education. A Travel Grant of £2,000 is available for successful applicants to meet to discuss and plan a prospective partnership. The successful partnership application will be awarded up to a further £13, 000
