AMMAN — The Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) on Tuesday signed a memorandum of understanding with the Education Ministry to help it provide educational services for Jordanian and Syrian students at public schools.

Under the deal, NRC will build some 47 additional classrooms, health facilities and pitches at overcrowded schools in Irbid.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Education Mohammad Thneibat and NRC Jordan Country Director Petr Kostohryz signed the memo, funded by the Norwegian foreign ministry.

NRC would also present educational programmes that help students acquire basic skills in Arabic, English and mathematics, in addition to training teachers on modern teaching skills, according to an NRC statement.
