Technical and vocational education and training for Jordanian and Syrian refugees in the Jordanian water sector

2017 - 2019 • Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH

Purpose

To improve the capacities of sanitation experts and specialists from water supply companies in Jordan.

Activities

The project supports the Jordanian Vocational Training Corporation in creating training courses for semi-skilled and qualified sanitation specialists. These are aimed at men and women from both Jordan and Syria in the governorates of Amman and Irbid. These sanitation system specialists also receive advice on how to improve their employment prospects and potential income. The trained workers ensure efficient maintenance and repair of sanitary installations in households, thereby reducing water losses.

The Jordanian water authorities are given advice on developing capacity for the roll-out of an extensive skills enhancement programme for technical operating staff. In this way, the project contributes to the reduction of water losses, including at the level of the supply networks, and to the sustainable safeguarding of investments in water infrastructure.

A consortium made up of the consultancy firms PEM Consult and WEE Pros is supporting the implementation of the project

Further information

Results:
More than 200 plumbers had already been trained by 2016 as part of the predecessor project, entitled Water Wise Plumbers, and given support in finding employment. In addition to an existing cooperative of female plumbers in the capital Amman, a second cooperative has been set up in Irbid. The current project will continue to support these female plumbers and cooperatives and advise them on how to improve their employment prospects and potential income. Their existing customers include (girls’) schools, universities and private households.
