COOPI and its partners TVET League and Al-Saraya Center organize the First Vocational Educational Expo in Jerusalem on Tuesday and Wednesday 2-3/5/2017 in Industrial Secondary School in industrial Zone – North of Jerusalem.
This expo will be organized as a part of “Promoting East Jerusalem innovation and sustainable economic development through TVET” project, funded by the European Union.
The expo will include booths for different vocations offered in the vocational centers and schools in Jerusalem. The event will also be attended by representatives of the private sector in East Jerusalem, who will then be able to evaluate the VTCs’ offer and, at the same time, provide advice to students on the possible career paths to be undertaken.
The objectives are two:
- to reinforce the career awareness activities carried out in the primary and secondary schools of East Jerusalem on the importance of technical-vocational training;
- to create opportunities for exchange and comparison among students, training centers and the private sector to promote sustainable labor market development.
