Ammon News - AMMONNEWS – UNESCO has launched a 5-day training workshop to build the capacity of government officials in education planning, projection techniques and simulation models. The aim of the activity is to provide 35 government officials with methods to assess the implication for educational services delivered to Jordanian children including the financial needs to address the educational needs of the Syrian refugees. After the training, participants would be skilled to respond to funding gaps required to sustain the quality of the Jordanian education system.

The workshop was organized thanks to the support of the Bulgarian Government in collaboration with the Ministry of Education in Jordan. The UNESCO International Institute for Educational Planning (IIEP) based in Paris (France)and the National Centre for Human Resource Development (NCHRD) in Ammanare also partners of the initiative.

“Jordan has invested a lot in its education system to reach high achievements over the past;this training is a timely initiative that will allow planners to bridge the gap between the pressures of emergency and development concerns” said Dr. Abdallah Ababneh, the President of The National Centre for Human Resource Development (NCHRD).

Representatives from the Ministry of Education, the Queen Rania Al Abdullah Center For Educational Technology and the Department of Statistics (DOS) as a representative for the Ministry of Planning and International Cooperation (MoPIC) will be among the participants.

“Projection techniques and simulation models are at the core of educational planning as they help to translatepolicyobjectives into implementation scenarios that provide sound basis for policymakers to opt for the most realistic and feasible strategies. These are evidence-based advocacy tools necessary for policy dialogue and for the formulation of better educational strategies,” said Mr. Claude Akpabie, Programme Specialist in the Education Sectorat UNESCO Office in Amman.
