Research Brief: Findings of a tracer study of RPL beneficiaries in Jordan

This research brief summarizes the findings of a tracer study of beneficiaries of the ILO-supported Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) Scheme in Jordan.

The scheme contributed to the implementation of the Jordan Compact by allowing beneficiaries to have their skills recognised, providing access to an occupational license, and therefore becoming eligible for a work permit. The tracer study explored the impact of the scheme on Syrian beneficiaries in the construction sector who participated between 2016 and 2018. The results presented in this note were taken from a combination of individual interviews and a survey of 352 RPL beneficiaries which was conducted in July 2019.
