Under the framework of the ILO KAB project with the Business Development Centre (BDC), a follow-up KAB workshop targeted vocational education teachers in Northern city, Irbid. The workshop held from 28 to 30 August, 2015, was facilitated by Ms. Rania Bikhazi, KAB International Key Facilitator (IKF) and Mr. Abduallah El Silawi, KAB National Key Facilitator (NKF) from Palestine.
This was the second refresher workshop and it was attended by 29 participants (11 males, 18 females) from 16 vocational schools who delivered the full KAB program in one year (2014-2015).
During the training workshop, participants shared experiences and presented challenges faced and lessons learned. Many participants showed pictures of their classrooms while implementing KAB highlighting the participatory aspects and the creativity used in the teaching.
Main challenges expressed by the participants were tackled with immediate solutions by BDC KAB Coordinator Mr. Ghaleb Hijazi and Mr. Tahsin Gfishi, KAB Supervisor from the Ministry of Education and Vocational Training. Some of these challenges were issuance of student certificates, provision of stationary, timely issuance of official letters from the government, and compensation means for facilitators.
The participants showed a high level of sharing and commitment during the workshop.
KAB facilitators will be delivering a second round of KAB courses during the 2015-2016 academic year in the hope of reaching a nationalisation decision soon.
