Virtual ICT training hoped to boost Jordan labour market

The ICT Association of Jordan ([email protected]) has announced a virtual ICT academy to train information technology majors on skills needed in the labour market is to be launched this year, Jordan Times has reported. The online academy, which will be launched in cooperation with private sector entities and experts in different fields, seeks to give ICT students an opportunity to undergo professional training on technical and non-technical skills that will help them join the workforce. "Students majoring in ICT-related fields in Jordan lack the necessary skills to join the market... the idea behind the academy is to reach out to students and acquaint them with needed ICT skills," [email protected] CEO Abed Shamlawi told the daily.
