AMMAN — Youth Minister Mohammad Nabulsi on Thursday inaugurated an on-the-job training programme in the aviation sector, implemented by the Ministry of Youth in partnership with Amideast /Jordan, Boeing International, and in cooperation with the Civil Aviation Regulatory Commission, and the Royal Jordanian Airline, among others.

The six-month programme to be held in Amman, includes skills development of 60 young people in the 18-30 age group in the English language and basic skills required in the aviation sector, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

During the launch of the programme held in Al Hussein Youth City, Nabulsi said that enhancing the skills of young people to meet the requirements of the labour market is a national objective that the ministry seeks to achieve through the national youth strategy, in cooperation with various stakeholders.

President of Boeing Middle East, Turkey and Africa (META) Kuljit Ghata-Aura expressed pride in contributing to the Kingdom's endeavours to combat unemployment among the youth, noting that the recovery of the travel sector in Jordan from the COVID-19 pandemic creates a strong demand for a new generation of competencies in the aviation sector.

Amideast/Jordan Country Manager Nour Al Rasheed said that training programmes like this help young Jordanians land successful careers in the aviation sector in Jordan, which has seen a significant increase in opportunities since the COVID-19 pandemic.
