youth employment in remote areas in Jordan / JOB-JO
Job Jo is aiming to reduce
unemployment and poverty in remote areas in Jordan through the establishment of
multiple Business Bureaus in the participating higher education institutions.
These Bureaus will provide the necessary teaching and training services for
unemployed graduates and re-qualify them to increase their job opportunities.
Job Jo also claims to have a special focus on women. The foreseen outcomes will
effectively contribute to improving the capacity building process at the
national level and to allow graduates to gain the skills and training needed
for their profession.
Moreover, the foreseen activities
will surely foster economic growth and reduce unemployment and poverty in
remote areas. Job Jo aims include providing services and workshops to graduates
to gain skills which are necessary, but not commonly provided by universities.
In addition, Job Jo will promote the modernization of learning methods, training
of staff and students, management and quality control and internationalization
of higher education institutions. The priority addressed is a relevant national
priority for the Jordan.
