The Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO) and the Arab Bureau of Education for the Gulf States (ABEGS), today in Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, signed a Cooperation Programme for the years 2017-2018. The Programme was signed by ISESCO Director General, Dr Abdulaziz Othman Altwaijri, and ABEGS Director General, Dr Ali bin Abdulkhaliq Al-Karni.

The cooperation programme includes organizing a seminar on innovative teaching methods and use of ICT in vocational and technical education, an educational forum on curriculum digitization, and a regional workshop on designing technical and vocational education curricula and programmes, adapted to the job market needs.
