The Civil Society of Nablus Governorate (CSNG), sub grantee of MoreThanAJob in Palestine, launched its second vocational training in the field of upholstery as part of “Fostering Economic Empowerment of Women from Less Fortunate Families through vocational Training” project.

The training targets 15 Palestinians from low-income socio-economic backgrounds aged between 16-35. It also includes 150 training hours that will be implemented at the Vocational Training Centre (VTC) Shreim in addition to 250 field training hours that will be implemented in furniture factories.

The training course is hosted by the Vocational Training Centre (VTC) in Nablus which provides a hands-on learning environment where trainees learn how to upholster through demonstrations they can apply to their own projects. This training is designed to prepare vocational trainees to perform various technical skills in all phases of the upholstery industry.

MoreThanAJob project, funded by the European Union within the ENI CBC Med Programme, aims to enforce social ‎inclusion of vulnerable and unemployed populations ‎by applying ‎best practices for more effective collaboration of the social and ‎‎solidarity economy (SSE) actors with the public administration.‎
