The EDU-SYRIA/EDU-JORDAN program -funded by EU through the regional trust fund in response to the Syrian crisis and managed by the German Jordanian University welcomed on 3 October, a new batch of Student Teachers benefiting from scholarships for the “Teacher Education Professional Diploma” for the academic year 2021/2022.

The Student Teachers are 70 Jordanian beneficiaries from organizations who support Vulnerable Jordanian Youth: National Aid Fund, Al-Zakat Fund, Al-Aman Fund, and Tkiyet Um Ali, covering the subjects of Arabic, English, science, mathematics, and Early Grades. The induction day included various activities from introduction to the diploma and all information around it that Student Teachers need to acknowledge during their journey.

The Diploma equips teachers for the current challenges in education, preparing educators to treat learning environments as more than mere space, but as the birthplaces of innovation, leadership, intellectual curiosity, and civic participation among youth.

The EDU-SYRIA/EDU-JORDAN programme is part of the EU-funded project to support higher education for Syrian refugees and vulnerable Jordanian youth, aiming to provide young students with opportunities to pursue higher education (bachelor and master’s degrees), vocational education, technical training, special entrepreneurial training, and labour market-oriented courses, as well as summer programmes for high school students.
