Amman (August 17, 2015) – The Ministry of Education (MoE) and United States Agency for International Development (USAID) launched a state of the art tourism and hospitality training center at Al Imam Malek Jabal Al Qusoor Public Secondary School today. The training center in East Amman provides vocational education to Jordanian students who plan to work in the tourism and hospitality sector, and is a model for other schools with the hospitality stream.

The hospitality and tourism sector accounts for 14% of Jordan’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and currently employs 50,000 Jordanians. Secondary school tourism and hospitality (fundukia) training centers represent the first rung on the career ladder for job entry and placement in tourism and hospitality careers. The USAID Economic Growth Through Sustainable Tourism Project is implementing a strategy in partnership with the Ministry of Education to reform vocational education in schools around the kingdom. The Jabal Al Qusoor school is the first school for boys to be renovated under this partnership.
