Vocational Training for Women

Flagship Initiative

The Vocational Training School for Women in Saudi Arabia is an Aster club initiative that aims to establish a vocational training school, specifically targeting women, providing 3 months – 12 months professional training programs to prepare high school and college graduates for specific jobs in demand. It aims to minimize, if not eliminate, the gap in education and job demands, where high school and college graduates are often not properly prepared for jobs.
