Technical and Vocational Education and Training for Syrian and Jordanian Youth in Jordan

In support of the Government of Jordan’s Response Plan for the Syria Crisis, the UNESCO Office in Amman, with generous funding from the Government of Korea, is implementing the project, Technical and Vocational Education and Training for Syrian and Jordanian Youth in Jordan”. The project will support 250 male and female Syrian Refugees and Jordanian Youth to access to meaningful accredited education that is internationally accredited and yields certifications and diplomas recognized internationally and inside Syria

The project, implemented in partnership with Al Quds College in Jordan, will support youth to earn a BTEC Level 3 Diploma at two training facilities in Amman and Irbid. This Diploma is recognized internationally, including in Syria. The 90 credit-hour Diploma, accredited by Pearson in the UK, is implemented over a twelve-month period in three semesters.

The first trimester provides foundational knowledge to succeed to ensure that youth are well prepared to undertake the programme, including a dedicated study skills course. During the second and third trimesters, students participate in academic and vocational courses in their specific field of study. Additionally, students also take English language training, and the Passport to Success program. All students benefit from on-site guidance and counseling services provided by the Al Quds College.

At the end of the programme, students are supported with transitioning to opportunities in the labour market or continuing their education and training.
