CLUSTER in Jordan launches its free training courses in Sustainable Economy sectors targeting unemployed youth and women!


New training opportunities for youth and women in Jordan on four Sustainable Economy sectors and Soft Employment skills!

Are you a young person between 18 and 30 years of age or a woman living in Jordan? Are you currently Not in Employment, Education or Training (NEET)? Would you like to develop your knowledge and skills in fields of the Green, Circular, Blue Economy and Sustainable Agriculture sectors? Are you interested in improving your Soft Employment Skills?

CLUSTER’s free training programme in Jordan managed by the Business Development Center (BDC) and the National Agricultural Research Center (NARC), partners of CLUSTER in Jordan, consists of the following 3 stages listed in chronological order:

1st phase: Online Courses

These courses are offered through CLUSTER's E-Learning Platform and are open for at least 250 NEETs living in Jordan. They consist of 5 modules:

  • Beginner level of the 4 sector modules including basic notions of Soft Employment Skills training:
    • Aquaponics;
    • Hydroponics;
    • Organic Farming;
    • Sustainable Food Processing;
  • Advanced level of the Soft Employment Skills module. 

Applicants can enrol in at least 1 of the 5 online modules. Each of the 5 modules is asynchronous and self-paced. The expected number of hours of completion of each of the 5 modules is 36 hours.

2nd phase: Onsite Training on Hydroponics and Aquaponics

After completing the beginner level of the online training on Hydroponics and Aquaponics:

  • The top 10 participants who finish the Hydroponics online module before 11 June 2023 will be selected via an Open Call process to attend the onsite training.
  • The top 10 participants who finish the Aquaponics online training before 11 June 2023 will be selected via an Open Call process to attend the onsite training.

The onsite training will take place during June 2023, for a duration of 25 hours, and will be held in the region of Tafileh, Jordan, as it will involve field visits to enterprises operation in both sectors. The onsite training programme will cover sessions on Corporate Social Responsibility. 

3rd phase: Paid Internships

These internships will be remunerated through a sub-granting scheme and will last for up to 3 months. They will be offered to the top 10 candidates who have completed the onsite training phase based on an Open Call selection process. These 10 interns will apply their knowledge and skills gained in enterprises operating in Aquaponics and Hydroponics in Tafileh. These internships are scheduled to take place during June-August 2023.

Since CLUSTER is a project co-funded by the European Union, the training courses are free of charge.
