As part of the process to nationalize the ILO’s KAB programme in Palestine under the Ministry of Labour during the academic year 2013/2014, a Training of Facilitators (TOF) workshop was conducted by KAB National Key Facilitators Mr. Nidal Ayeshand Mr. Shaheer Yakob from 27 October until 7 November 2013.

This comes after the successful implementation of a pilot project in Palestine in 2009-2010, the positive results of an impact assessment, and the decision to nationalize the KAB programme under the Ministries of Labor, Education and Higher Education.

The 11-day workshop was held in Ramallah and falls under the ILO/Welfare Association project entitled “Nationalization of the Know About Business Programme in the Occupied Palestine Territory”. Twenty-four teachers (9 women and 15 men) attended the workshop from Ramallah’s vocational training centres (VTCs), the Ministry of Social Affairs, and other non-profit associations like the Young Women's Christian Association (YWCA) and Lutheran World Federation to be able to deliver KAB in their respective organizations.

The workshop’s closing session was attended by H.E Dr. Ahmad Al Majdalani, the Minister of Labour, Engineer Mahmoud Njoum, the General Manager of the Vocational Training Directorate and Mr. Mounir Kleibo, ILO Representative in Palestine. During the event, the aforementioned officials expressed to attendees and the press their full support with rolling-out the KAB programme in Ramallah.

Participants showed great enthusiasm and commitment toward the KAB programme, giving specific recommendations for the implementation and monitoring process. Of particular interest for participants was the topic of social entrepreneurship, whereby many teachers developed a feasible plan for greening their VTCs through cooperation with local institutions.

A draft KAB implementation plan outlining the schedule and number of hours to be given was jointly set for the training centres, while participants from YWCA and Lutheran World Federation developed their own implementation plans according to their institutional needs.
