The ILO Regional Office for Arab States and the ILO Office in Cairo started in 2006 the implementation of the KAB programme in vocational and technical education in order to foster entrepreneurship thinking among youth and promote self-employment as a career option.

The overall objective of the meeting is to improve the knowledge and understanding of the KAB practitioners, facilitators and promoters of the programme content, implementation methodology, management and strategic future developments needed.

The meeting was attended by 57 representatives of ministries and national partners who have implemented the programme namely from Lebanon, Jordan, Yemen, Egypt, Morocco and Tunisia. And KAB certified Regional and National Key Facilitators and coordinators/supervisors also took part in the meeting from the same countries mentioned above.

The workshop included presentations from the implementing partners and consultants, and discussions revolved around KAB’s target groups and how to best reach them, as well as suggested additions to the KAB materials from different users.

At the end of the meeting participants and facilitators agreed on programme recommendations, most notably:

1-  Organizing more competitions at national/regional levels for the best business plan, best facilitator and institution;

2-  ensuring that the KAB is institutionalized in related national institutions to ensure the sustainability of the programme and its national rollout;

3-  conducting yearly KAB follow up meetings for experience sharing and development;

4-  providing continuous training to the KAB facilitators to keep them abreast of new developments and updates;

5- conducting impact assessments of the KAB programme at national levels to build a database of examples and case studies to enhance the evidence-based marketing of the programme;

6-  and further developing the online KAB platform for trainers and implementing countries.
