Maharat Med, a project to train students to be ready for future work and help them start their own businesses has launched a package of activities, including Maharat Universities and Maharat Awareness Sessions.

Developed in line with the UfM flagship Mediterranean Initiative for Jobs (Med4Jobs), Maharat Med is an innovative program advancing youth employment in the Mediterranean countries of Jordan, Palestine, Egypt, and Morocco and is promoted by the non-profit organisation Business Development Center (BDC) Jordan.

In partnership with universities around Jordan, “Maharat Universities” is implemented as a three-hour accredited undergraduate elective course and it focuses on soft skills and life skills that develop the students’ capacities in preparation for the labour market.

Maharat Awareness Sessions were conducted to provide the students with better insights about the labour market from real experiences, where those sessions were provided by mentors and practitioners with successful career paths in order to motivate the students from their real life expertise and experience.
