Apprenticeships bring skills to young Jordanians

Jordan is a “young” country, with over 60 per cent of its population under 30. But Jordan’s youth face the difficult task finding work, as more than half of them are unemployed. Part of the reason is a mismatch between what they learn at school and the skills needed in the labour market. A new programme by the ILO and the International Youth Foundation is trying to give Jordan’s young people the skills they need to compete successfully for the jobs that are available.  Click here to see video produced by the ILO.
