Under the framework of the ILO-DEF-VTC Project, in Jordan, KAB Selection Interviews were held with the coordinators, trainers and supervisors selected by the Development and Employment Fund (DEF) and the Vocational Training Corporation (VTC).

The purpose of the interviews was to assess the coordinators’, trainers’ and supervisors’ readiness and ability to participate in the KAB pilot which will entail but is not limited to participating in the Training of Facilitators’ Workshop (TOF), subsequent KAB follow-up workshops and delivering/supervising the KAB course in selected vocational training classes. Selected trainers are expected to meet ILO KAB criteria which requires them to be dynamic, ready to learn and implement participatory training techniques and receive and give constructive feedback.

31 interviews were held with coordinators, supervisors and trainers to enquire about the following main points:

  1. Their attitude towards entrepreneurship education and the KAB programme
  2. Their motivation level
  3. Their business and teaching skills
  4. Whether they previously opened a business

In general, all interviewed participants showed a high level of interest in the KAB programme and its piloting at the selected vocational training centres due to what they heard of the programme during the KAB Awareness Workshop and their previous exposure to various trainings on soft skills and participatory training techniques. The KAB Coordinators and Supervisors specifically expressed high enthusiasm and readiness to dedicate their full time for the successful implementation of the KAB project.

After conducting the interviews and following the interviewer's recommendations, 4 trainers were replaced due to either a lack of interest in the KAB programme or severe time/financial constraints they will be facing that will prevent them from providing the programme the adequate time for a successful implementation.

The KAB Training of Facilitators' Workshop is expected to be held in the first quarter of 2013.
