Detailed description of project Back

Current EU support is directed towards basic education, youth programmes, vocational and higher education, primarily through a budget support programme (EUR 30 million from 2011-2014) and a capacity development programme (EUR 3 million). An additional EUR 35 million are foreseen in support to the Employment and Technical and Vocational Education and Training Reform Programme, out of which EUR 29 million are committed to budget support. Since the Syrian refugee crisis has put a considerable burden on the Jordanian education system, support is provided to the Ministry of Education (MoE), together with UNESCO and UNICEF, to finance basic education for Syrian pupils in camps and Jordanian host communities. Such complementary support (provided through UN agencies) amounts to EUR 35 million from 2012-2015. In total, EUR 65 million have been invested in the Jordanian education sector.
