Refresher Training of Trainers on Jordan specific pre-departure awareness

The Training of Trainers (ToT) was to further capacitate the counsellors and trainers to provide accurate and relevant Jordan specific information.

A one-day refresher training of trainers on Jordan specific pre-departure awareness took place on 29 May 2017 in Kathmandu. The training was a follow-up to the two-day training of trainers held on 14 and 15 May 2017. The specific objectives were to:

•    enhance capacity of the trainers to provide effective pre-departure Jordan specific information to the workers going through the FAIR pilot programme as well as other workers who are migrating to work in the apparel industry in Jordan to include accurate information on their working and living conditions during employment
•    collect feedback from the participants of the first ToT who have already conducted trainings to the migrant workers
•    revisit topics identified by the participants that needed more clarity based on the feedback received. 

Enabling migrant workers to understand working in different conditions to ensure informed decision-making

The FAIR project in Nepal has partnered with the HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation Nepal's Safe Migration (SaMi) Project to develop and deliver a comprehensive skills training programme to Nepali workers migrating to work in the Jordanian garment sector. Thus a key component of this partnership is the support by the ILO to develop and deliver  an effective, comprehensive and transparent pre-departure programme tailored to the specificities of the Jordanian apparel industry. The SaMi project is working with F-SKILL Pvt. Ltd., service provider of technical and vocation education and training sector in Nepal, to provide an array of skills and pre-departure training to potential migrant workers including garment skills training.

Anita Ghimire, who is working with F-Skill as a life-skills counsellor shares, “this refresher training is giving us the opportunity to revisit our learnings from the first ToT and also to adequately share the feedback we received from the participants. Most of them tell us that the fact that these trainings are country and sector specific better prepares them for their jobs.”
