Entrepreneurship Education: Introduction of "Know About Business" in Vocational and Technical Trainings in Palestine
KAB has been introduced in Palestine during a project that took place from 2009 to 2011.
In November 2011, a Senior Evaluator was recruited to conduct an independent final evaluation for the project, in line with ILO policies and procedures on evaluations.
The evaluation ran between November and December 2011 and included desk review of secondary data, several meetings with key project personnel and institutional counterparts in Beirut and South Lebanon, Focus Groups with the project trainees and trainers, several visits to VTCs, as well as a stakeholders’ workshop to triangulate information received and gather comments and feedback on the draft findings.
One of the main findings is that the ILO has been highly successful in introducing a relevant addition (KAB) to technical training curricula in Palestine. Following the pilot testing, both the MoL and the MoEHE have officially included KAB training into their national training curricula and have set aside the resources required for the roll-out. KAB is enjoying support from the highest levels of the Palestinian Authority.
