Detailed description of project Back

The Jordan TVET system is fragmented with a high level of centralisation and supply orientated,. The National Agenda exercise launched by the Government in 2005 identifies proposals for Employment and TVET. They go a long way towards establishing a sector policy for TVET, mainly in terms of governance and management, recommending the establishment of an umbrella Higher Council on HRD, an Employment and TVET Council (E/TVET), an Employment and Training Fund, an independent Quality Assurance Agency, and the remodeling of the Vocational Training Corporation as an autonomous body. Early 2006 the Ministry of Labour took the leadership with facilitation of the European Training Foundation to initiate a process leading to organize the sector reform process to follow-up on the recommendations of the National Agenda. The reforms are far-reaching and provide an excellent basis for the reform of TVET, but they do not constitute a comprehensive sector policy embracing all training providers.

The pre-feasibility study will provide the decision makers in the Government and the European Commission with sufficient information to make strategic choices in the design of the project “Support to TVET sector in Jordan” and to prepare further analysis leading to acceptance, modification or rejection of the proposed project for further financing and implementation.
