Hundreds of thousands of school leavers, university graduates and graduates of vocational education and training institutes enter the labour market each year and many of them cannot find a job. Preparing youth for self-employment and enterprise development is therefore considered an important strategy in national education efforts and countries are increasingly introducing entrepreneurship education at different levels in the educational system to orient youth to other career options than wage employment.

Against this backcloth, the ILO under the patronage of H. E., Mrs. Suzanne Mubarak, first Lady of Egypt, and with financial support of the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) is organising an international conference on entrepreneurship education in Sharm El Sheikh, with a special focus on the Know About Business (KAB) programme, to discuss and share the experiences of these and other efforts with a view to develop better policies and guidelines for the promotion of self-employment and youth entrepreneurship.

The conference is aimed at all policy makers and practitioners involved in the promotion, design and teaching of entrepreneurship education courses in schools, vocational education and training institutions, and higher education from contries of the Middle East and North Africa region and abroad. Governement officials, educators, students and trainees, representatives from students organisations, International Organisations, donors, national and international NGOs, young entrepreneurs association are also invited to participate.

يدخل إلى سوق العمل في الشرق الأوسط وشمال أفريقيا كل عام مئات الألوف سواء من خريجي الجامعات والمعاهد العليا، أو خريجي التعليم الفني والتدريب المهني، إضافة إلى عدد كبير من المتسربين من التعليم. وكثيراً منهم لا يستطيعون إيجاد وظيفة أو فرصة عمل. ومن ثم فإن تأهيل الشباب للتأهيل الذاتي وتنمية المؤسسات، تعتبر من الاستراتيجيات الهامة التي تأتى على رأس الجهود التي تبذل لتطوير التعليم الوطني وعليه أخذت الدول تتجه إلى إدخال تعليم ريادة الأعمال بشكل متزايد في مستويات مختلفة من النظام التعليمي لتوجيه الشباب إلى خيارات أخرى غير العمل بأجر .

ولمواجهة هذه التحديات، فقد سعت منظمة العمل الدولية إلى تنظيم مؤتمر دولي حول تعليم ريادة الأعمال في مدينة شرم الشيخ بجمهورية مصر العربية. وسوف يتيح المؤتمر مناقشة وتبادل الخبرات ومراجعة الجهود التي بذلت، وذلك بهدف تطوير سياسات أفضل وإرساء مبادئ توجيهية لتعزيز التشغيل الذاتي وريادة الأعمال لدى الشباب.

هذا المؤتمر موجه إلى جميع واضعي السياسات والمتخصصين المشتركين في تعزيز وتصميم وتعليم ريادة الأعمال في المدارس ومؤسسات التعليم الفني والتدريب المهني، والتعليم العالي ببلدان منطقة الشرق الأوسط وشمال أفريقيا وخارجها. وعلى وجه الخصوص المسئولين الحكوميين والمعلمين والطلبة والمتدربين، وممثلين منظمات الطلاب، والمنظمات الدولية، والهيئات المانحة، والمنظمات غير الحكومية الوطنية والدولية، وجمعيات رواد الأعمال، كل هؤلاء مدعوون لتبادل المعارف والخبرات.

للتسجيل، يرجى النقر على المكان المخصص لملئ الاستمارة وشكراً.

This report gives quick overview of the global outreach of the KAB program as of September 2009. Quite some detective work went into preparing this report since no systematic monitoring system had been established for the KAB program. The data presented in the report is thus collected from numerous educational institutions and ILO offices and colleagues in the close to 50 countries where KAB has been introduced. Many devoted individuals contributed to this report and thanks is due to all who went the "extra mile" to furnish the information. Special thanks is due to Thais Lucas de Rezende who showed a particular flair for detective work and for making sense of  all the information. Henceforth, we hope that this knowledge sharing platform will provide a space for the growing community of KAB practitioners to share information and keep the community growing.
