AMMAN — UNESCO, under the patronage of the Ministry of Education, is partnering with Al Quds College in launching an educational project specifically dedicated to 250 Jordanian and Syrian youths affected by the Syrian crisis, according to a statement released on Wednesday by UNESCO Amman Office.

The project, titled “Technical and Vocational Education and Training for Syrian and Jordanian Youth in Jordan”, is financially underpinned by the Korean government and will be based at Al Quds College in Amman.

The young students, half of whom will be women, will be taught the BTEC Level 3 Diploma programme, a one-year internationally accredited programme focusing on seven different specialities.

They will also attend courses on English language, life skills, computer literacy and study skills, according to the statement.
