NCCI Conducts an Education Capacity Building Workshop with UNESCO

NCCI has worked together with UNESCO, the National Executive Body for Literacy and the Non-formal Education Department in Kurdistan on developing the legal and technical frameworks to enable the education authorities to engage in efficient partnerships with NNGOs for the implementation of the Literacy and Non-Formal Education Campaign in Iraq. This cooperation is a part of the “Coordinating national NGO Participation in the Implementation of the Literacy and Non-Formal Education Campaign in Iraq” project, which itself forms part of the LIFE project implemented by UNESCO.

NCCI, in collaboration with UNESCO, conducted a workshop in Erbil between 18-20 November 2014 to develop the capacities of NNGOs and education staff from the provinces of Anbar, Ninewa, Salah ad-Din, Kirkuk, Sulaymaniyah, Duhok and Erbil to enable successful partnership between the education authorities and NNGOs in implementing the national literacy campaign.

22 NNGOs staff and 10 education departments’ employees were trained on the legal and technical frameworks of the “Working Document”, community mobilization, monitoring and evaluation, and community learning centers management.

In the coming two weeks, UNESCO and NCCI will conduct two more workshops to build the capacities of 38 more NNGOs and 18 education staff from the rest of the country.
