Center for E-Training in Gaza Refugee Camp

In 2008, Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Foundation for E-training, TAG.Global for Vocational Training and the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees in the Near East, under the auspices and in the presence of HE Dr. Talal Abu-Ghazaleh, agreed to equip and operate a center for e-training in the Local Community Development Center at the Gaza refugee camp, in Jerash, Jordan.

The Center provides youth with the training to qualify for the Abu-Ghazaleh Cambridge IT Skills certificate, in addition to English language skills and other training courses. It has become the nucleus for the local Community Development Center at the Gaza camp. The Centre operates under the supervision of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees in the Near East -”UNRWA”.

TAG.Global has provided computers, equipment, tools and furniture and holds free training courses for staff to be certified to teach the Abu-Ghazaleh Cambridge curriculum.

This five-year strategic plan trains and rehabilitates young people to learn computer skills and paves the way for them to acquire IT skills and languages which are a key requirement in a competitive labor market.

Training 1500 Young Men and Women

Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Cambridge IT Skills Center has signed two training agreements: the first was with the Jordanian Hashemite Fund and the other with the Jordan Education for Employment Corporation during the Open Day for employing awareness organized by Youth for Work in Jordan in cooperation with the Ministry of Social Development.

Youth for Work Program has a target of training 900 young men and women between 15-24 years on Cambridge ICT Skills International Diploma. The program covers Amman (Annuzha and Kharibet Assouk) and Irbid (Hay Shamali and Hay Arrakman) and provides trainees with access to rewarding and sustainable jobs and theoretical and practical training.

It also aims to deliver ICT training to 600 students through the Abu-Ghazaleh Cambridge ICT Skills Diploma, in both Rusaifa and Maan within the framework of the Youth for Work Program in Jordan.
