SAP marks graduation of Young Professional Program in Jordan
Jordanian government has a goal of training 35,000 people in digital skills
SAP has graduated the latest cohort of its Young Professional Program in Jordan.
SAP collaborated with customers, partners, peers and other stakeholders such as universities and government organisations to deliver this program to help local youth find a job on one hand, and SAP customers and partners find talent.
Some of the partners included ABS, German Jordanian University, Intaj, Intrasoft, JEPCO, and SkyTech.
“Jordan is a Middle East and North Africa leader in driving public-private partnerships to boost the digital economy, foster job creation, and develop young talent to take on digital careers,” said Marita Mitschein, senior vice president - digital skills, SAP South Europe, Africa and Middle East, and managing director of the SAP Training and Development Institute. “Young people in Jordan have the drive and potential to take the countries’ organisations to the next level and drive digital transformation. Only if we join hands and support each other we can create the maximum impact.”
As part of the Young Professional Program, 22 formerly unemployed or underemployed university graduates have been trained on software functional and technical knowledge and certification, with a key focus on the latest innovations, and soft and future skill trainings. Participants graduate from the 2-3-month-long program as SAP Associate Consultants, ready to kick-start their careers with SAP’s customers and partners.
