Under the framework of the ILO/UNESCO project entitled “Expansion of the KAB programme in Kurdistan targeting students enrolled in vocational education institutions and unemployed youth graduates of TVET” the first KAB follow-up  workshop targeting teachers working under the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs (MoLSA) started on Sunday June 2nd, 2013 and was attended by 12 participants who were trained in September 2012 and only delivered KAB starting May 6, 2013 to 276 out-of- school/unemployed Kurdish youth.

The opening session was attended by the ILO Enterprise Development Specialist, Ms. Rania Bikhazi, and Mr. Khalid Khoshnaw, UNESCO National Programme Officer in Erbil. The Enterprise Development Specialist shared with the participants the 2013 KAB version stating that the delay they faced in the implementation of the programme provided them with the opportunity to be trained on the latest KAB version. Additionally, the delay allowed the ILO to initiate the translation of the material to Kurdish and make available the unedited version for teachers to use in their classrooms.

During the workshop it was made clear by teachers that students enrolled in the KAB training, who are mainly women, may not be applying to the loan once they complete the course and submit their business plans. This could be due to many reasons most importantly the fact that they do not have the willingness to start their own businesses (this was not imposed as a pre-requisite on the students who enrolled in the course). Additionally there is the fact that once they apply for the loan they will be forbidden to access any government employment for the next 6 years (loan reimbursement period).

In the last session of the workshop a training plan was drawn and agreed upon covering the topics to be delivered in the remaining course period. The number of hours, games to be played for each topic were presented and agreed upon in order to complete the delivery by July 4, 2013. Consequently, it was agreed to hold the second follow-up workshop from 6-8 July 2013.
