The ETF has been supporting Jordan since 1998 to develop education and training to boost employability, increase access to opportunity and promote social cohesion complementing the work of the European Commission and the EU’s External Action Service, including responding to requests from the Delegation of the European Union to Jordan. The ETF supports policy dialogue with input to bilateral subcommittee meetings, monitoring of European Neighbourhood Policy action plans and annual country updates and provides advice and technical assistance on the EU Sector Reform contract, particularly related to social partnership and the labour market.

The ETF reports on wider human capital developments within the Torino Process, the fifth round of which was finalised and presented in 2020. It also cooperates with other bilateral and international donors, in particular the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development on sector skills’ councils.
