About me:
Specialist in IT professional skills, learning strategy and implementation, and web content best practice and development. Experience of addressing the skills mismatch between the supply of graduates and the demand of the ICT sector. One project involved providing expert advice on ICT occupational standards that could be adopted in Jordan, including a framework that would validate the skills and profiles required by the ICT sector. The project was part of a wider initiative led by the International Finance Corporation (IFC)’s ‘Education for Employment’ initiative focused on improving employment opportunities for graduates across the Arab world.

Critical to the project was the initiation and development of an open dialogue with key stakeholders from both public and private education and training providers, local and international employers, and government ministers and

The establishment of a ICT Sector Skills Organisation in Jordan is currently in progress with support from the USAID Jordan Competitiveness Program (JCP).

Elgar Learning has now added employability skills, particularly with young people, to its range of services.
