12-20 November 2012: Sana’a, Yemen

KAB NKF Workshop 12-17 November 2012

Under the framework of the ILO/KAB project in Yemen and the decision of the MTEVT to nationalize the KAB programme in Yemen, a KAB National Key Facilitators’ Workshop was held in Sana’a from 12 to 17 November 2012. The KAB NKF was facilitator by two KAB Regional Key Facilitators (RKFs). Throughout the workshop, the RKFs thoroughly observed the performance of KAB teachers to assess their competencies as potential NKFs. As part of their certification, the participants were given a written KAB exam covering the KAB Games and a written KAB exam covering the content and training techniques of the KAB programme.

Following the potential NKFs performance during the workshop and in the KAB exam:

  • 6 participants were recommended as potential KAB NKFs (5 from the Ministry of TVET and 1 from SMEPS). These potential KAB NKFs can also perform the duties of the KAB supervisors.
  • 13 KAB teachers from the Ministry of TVET were deemed able to perform KAB supervisory duties in addition to teaching KAB to students.
  • 7 KAB teachers were not recommended to perform KAB supervisory duties. These teachers will continue teaching KAB to students.

KAB Follow-Up Workshop on new KAB topics 18-20 November 2012

A three days training workshop on the new KAB topics namely Green Enterprises, Social Security, Decent Work, Gender and People with Disabilities was held from 18 to 20 November 2012. The workshop was opened by H.E Abdel Hafez Thabet Neeman Minister of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) who stressed on the need for entrepreneurship education in Yemen and inaugurated the national roll-out of the KAB programme and the new KAB 2013 version of the package which has been customized to fit the Yemeni socio-economic background. H.E also met with the ILO Enterprise Development Specialist to discuss the nationalization plan for the KAB programme. He also suggested ways to support enterprise development in Yemen such as the establishment of a bank that specifically caters for the needs of SMEs. The event was extensively covered by the media which documented the keynote speeches and the workshop proceedings[1].

 

During the workshop, small groups of participants (2-3 participants in each group) delivered the new topics added to the KAB programme; additionally, group discussions were held and further explanations of the topics were provided by the RKFs. The facilitators presented examples of how the topics of Gender and People with Disabilities are fully integrated in the KAB topics. The participants also discussed all the suggested changes to the Yemeni KAB version to finalize the package. The latest KAB 2013 Arabic version will be provided to SMEPS and to the Ministry of TVET to be used in the upcoming KAB TOF workshops. One session was allocated to discuss the suggested scenarios for the implementation of KAB in technical education and vocational training institutions.
