Objectives:

Main Objective: Empower young people economically and facilitate their integration into the labor market, as well as to develop productive projects in the agricultural sector.

Implementation Methodology: The project is designed to provide solutions that will create an enabling environment in which young agricultural and technological leaders can make contributions to help provide innovative pilot solutions to overcome the challenges faced by agricultural production projects. This will contribute to increasing the productivity of SMEs and enhance their continuity and contribution to the local economy; The project includes the selection of 80 young agricultural specialists and the building of their capacity in labor market entry skills, of whom 50 would be selected and given three months’ temporary employment after being provided with job guidance sessions to enable them to choose the best career path.

The training methodology was based on a clear and serious methodology that aims to accomplish real-life tasks, active participation, perseverance in presenting ideas, presenting proposals and working together.

 

Output of the course:

  • In the course of the periodic follow-up process, the staff of the incubator made it clear how satisfied the participants were with the training camp, and how well they developed the skills and knowledge of the trainees in the basics of the programming languages to be trained. CSS-HTML-JS was one of the most proficient languages and had a range of successful practical experiences with the participation of trainers.
  • The training outputs were not limited to this, but there was a range of distinctive outputs, the most important of which was the participation of trainees in a range of technological leadership ideas and how these ideas could be applied through the technical area (from the concept to an integrated software project).
  • At the end of the training, all trainees were able to produce their own language basics project (CSS-HTML-JS).
