Representatives of Specto, the National Operator for ICDL in Jordan, and the Erasmus+ Office in the country jointly delivered a presentation recently about the European Qualifications Framework and existing mapping of the ECDL and ICDL programmes to National Qualifications Frameworks. One of the aims of the workshop was to present the proposed National Qualification Framework (NQF) and Occupational Profile (OP) in Jordan.
The workshop took place at the Princess Sumaya University for Technology, in cooperation with the Jordan Skills Standardization Organization, established by the Information Technology Association of Jordan (int@j). The workshop attendees were a group of University professors and IT professionals, in addition to managers and specialists from major companies in the ICT sector.
The workshop had a particular focus of strengthening the industry-university partnership by demonstrating ways that enable both parties to work together to promote graduate employability and to enable individuals to make better decisions about certifications and qualifications, as well as for organisations to make valid judgments about the qualifications of learners and workers.
