A KAB Follow-up Worshop for men was held at the Riyadh College of Telecommunication and Information from 13 to 15 October 2012. The workshop was attended by 20 participants (17 KAB teachers, the KAB National Coordinator from RIYADAH and 2 KAB supervisors).

From the initial 25 teachers trained at the ToF in November 2011, only 9 teachers implemented the entire KAB programme as an elective in the colleges of Abha, Tabuk, Arar, Najran, Al Baha, Medina, Al Majmaa, Jeddah and Taef (on class in each college with the exception of Al Baha where 2 classes were taught). Of the 16 teachers who attended the follow-up workshop only 7 implemented the entire KAB programme.

The main reasons provided for not implementing the programme are mainly related to the difficulty in attracting the required number of students to enroll in the programme and to sustain them until the end of the course.

However, it is important to note that teachers who implemented the programme did so in a very professional and organized manner presenting very detailed and well prepared reports at the refresher workshop. Some teachers taught the course during evening sessions from 19:00 to 23:00 and exerted lots of efforts in the marketing of the course (using sms and holding awareness meetings) and the selection of the students to ensure their commitment and limit the dropout rate.

A total of 220 students were reached, one opened his vegetables shop while some of them went to RIYADAH requesting loans. The five finalists in each class who  successfully completed their business plans were given financial rewards ranging from SR2,000 to SR500.
