KAB National Key Facilitators Workshop in Cairo-March 2013 Featured
Under the framework of the ILO/CIDA project entitled: “Decent Jobs for Egypt’s Young People (DJEP)”, and specifically under the self-employment and entrepreneurship development component, a KAB National Key Facilitator Workshop was facilitated by the RO-Beirut Enterprise Development Specialist, Ms. Rania Bikhazi, upon the request of ILO-Cairo Office.
The workshop was held at the Pyramisa Hotel from 24-28 March 2013. The opening session was attended by officials from the ILO office in Cairo namely Ms. Kholoud Al Khaldi, Senior Enterprise Development Specialist, Mr. Magdy Wahba, SME Expert, Ms. Perihan Tawfik, Project Officer and Mr. Sayed Kasseb, Director of Pathways. Opening speeches focused on the importance of tackling youth unemployment and promoting self-employment as a career option among Egyptian youth.
Following the introduction of the programme and the leveling of participants’ expectations made at the beginning of the workshop by the Enterprise Development Specialist who is a KAB International Key Facilitator (IKF); a brief presentation was made by Mr. Magdy Wahba on the history of the KAB programme in Egypt and the current ILO/CIDA project. Ms. Kholoud Al Khaldi in her turn presented the ILO implementation of the KAB programme in North Africa and also delivered a session on Gender Equality. The IKF, Ms. Rania Bikhazi, made a brief presentation on the KAB implementation in the Middle East followed by Ms. Perihan Tawfik who presented the content of the KAB Key Facilitator Guide.
Twenty two university professors/potential national key facilitators from eight universities across Egypt participated in the NKF workshop. Under the Pathways project in Egypt, almost all of the professors contributed to the KAB training delivered in summer 2012 and/or winter 2013 in addition to some who contributed to some of the promotional awareness sessions in their universities.
Since it was not possible for the Enterprise Specialist to monitor the delivery of the professors in their classrooms, they were each asked to prepare a 15 minutes presentation to report their achievements in KAB teaching and to demonstrate their facilitation skills. Each presentation was followed by a short feedback session to which both the participants and the Enterprise Development Specialist contributed.
On Tuesday 26 March, a two-hour session was allocated for the presentation of the online version of the KAB programme. Participants were guided in a step-by-step application of the online programme which they found interesting and useful if blended with face-to-face training to reduce the training hours in the classrooms. The session was delivered by Ms. Doaa Al Jabali, teacher previously trained on KAB.
On Wednesday 27 March, a two-hour session was allocated to discuss the topic of social entrepreneurship which was delivered by Mr. Ayman Tarabishi from George Washington University. The concept of social entrepreneurship was not very clear to participants who were guided through the definition of the concept in a plane game they all appreciated.
On the last day of the workshop a written test was administered to assess the participants’ knowledge of the KAB programme and its content. Certificates of attendance were also distributed to all participants during the closing session attended by the same officials present at the opening.
