In cooperation with our partners, 1,700 youth have been enrolled in training courses based on the work-based learning (WBL) methodology developed by Qudra 2 in consultation with Jordanian stakeholders. WBL gives youth the chance to gain real-world work experience that will equip them with the practical skills that employers look for, thereby increasing their chances of finding a job.
The training courses are provided to youth and women residing in Jordan’s most vulnerable locations, including refugee camps. The focus is on semi-skilled professions such as sewing or dough-making. Of 1,700 trainees, almost 1,000 have completed their training, and 750 are participating in training. More than 300 Jordanian and Syrian youth have found a job already.
