AMMAN — Orange Jordan and the Vocational Training Corporation (VTC) on Sunday signed an agreement to launch Orange FabLab, a coding academy, and an accelerator at a vocational training centre in Salt, Balqa.

VTC Director General Ahmed Gharaibeh and Orange Jordan's Deputy CEO/CFO Raslan Deiranieh signed the agreement as part of “Innovation Space”, a three-year project co-funded by the EU’s “Innovation for Enterprise Growth and Jobs” programme aiming to promote digital empowerment and innovation culture, according to an Orange Jordan statement.

Labour Minister Nayef Steitieh presided over the signing. The new free digital programmes are an extension of the “Innovation Space” project that seeks to expand Orange’s free digital programmes and give youth the opportunity to benefit from training in in-demand digital skills to enhance their employability and support them in launching their own projects.
