The expansion of KAB in schools and intermediate institutes during FY09/10 & 10/11was successfully completed and has equipped 16-19 year olds with entrepreneurship skills. This was achieved through: the monitoring of the programme implementation in selected schools; following up with Ministry coordinators; regular visits to the educational institutions and the provision of support to teachers. The programme successfully achieved the last expansion phase to cover 14 governorates all over Syria. 100% of schools and institutes have been covered in: Damascus, Aleppo, Homs, Lattakia and Deir El Zour, while the remaining 9 governorates started to implement the programme in some schools and institutes. KAB is now being implemented at the university level in various faculties of 5 universities.

In order to successfully complete the expansion phase the following was achieved:

2009-2010:

13 ToTs were conducted for the Ministry of Education to train 374 teachers

3 ToTs were conducted for the Ministry of Higher Education to train 75 teachers

2010-2011:

6 ToTs were conducted for the Ministry of Education to train 185 teachers

3 ToTs were conducted for the Ministry of Higher Education to train 69 teachers

Achievements:

The programme is being implemented all over Syria and is ready to be handed over to the Ministry of Education. This objective was achieved based on the good preparation of the pilot phase and the expansion phase during 4 years. The good relationship with the ministry and its engagement in all programme issues from the onset was essential.

Expansion to Universities:

Due to the success of the programme in the last semester, the Ministry of Higher Education and SHABAB have expressed their willingness to expand the programme to cover all faculties across Syria. SHABAB is currently training the teachers who will be delivering KAB in universities, evaluating the implementation and conducting regular monitoring visits. The same KAB package is being used but university lecturers and professors are given the freedom to modify the package and integrate new information.

Lessons learned:

  • Engaging the Ministry throughout the project life builds a sense of ownership.
  • Maintaining a good relationship with stakeholders.
  • In order to maintain the quality of the programme, incentives should be given to the teachers.
  • Nominations of KAB teachers should be based on specific criteria set to ensure quality in delivery.
  • Ensuring the availability of training facilities that suit the interactive teaching methods of the programme.
  • Ensuring the availability of visual aids and stationary.
  • Number of students in each training hall should not exceed 25-30
  • Strict procedures should be taken to monitor the students' attendance in institutes and industrial schools (close collaboration with schools’ management).
  • With respect to universities, a fixed timetable for the KAB course should be set before the beginning of the academic year. Students can arrange their time according to this schedule.

Outlook:

SHABAB will continue the nationalization process of the KAB programme by building the capacity of the KAB Unit at the Ministry of Education.

SHABAB will also continue the implementation of the programme with the Ministry of Higher Education and will be responsible for the quality of implementation.
