In its proposed road map Jordan’s National Strategy for Human Resources Development (NSHRD 2015-2016) highlights the establishment of governance bodies led by the private sector as a pre-requisite to a stronger Human Resources Development (HRD) system. To facilitate meeting the objectives of the NSHRD, several recent interventions by implementing partners and national constituents have been focusing on strengthening national skills development systems by introducing sector governance bodies, such as Sector Skills Councils (SSC).
The G20 Training Strategy aims to enhance the relevance of education and training outcomes to labor market demands and to build the capacity of those working in the TVET sector to develop systems for national and sectoral skills development.
The ILO partners with the Russian Federation to support Jordan’s endeavours towards improving the Technical and Vocational Education and Training system in the country
A 2-day Skills for Trade and Economic Diversification (STED) workshop took place in Amman, Jordan under the “Applying the G20 Training Strategy: A Partnership of the ILO and the Russian Federation” (Phase 2) project. The workshop marked the commencement of Project activities in Jordan.
The training workshop aimed at sharing national, regional and international experiences of establishing sectoral systems of TVET governance so that stakeholders in Jordan can consider options for improving the current system in the country. The workshop also introduced key issues to be addressed when establishing Sector Skills Councils and other bodies involved in the governance of TVET at a sectoral level.
