Country wide, 568 field directorate EMIS trainers will conduct trainings at the school level, resulting in 13, 600 educators trained on the EMIS.

The project, ‘Technical assistance to enhance accessibility and use of the Jordanian MoE EMIS for evidence-based policy formulation,’ funded by the European Union, has been launched in the framework of the Government of Jordan’s Education Reform for Knowledge Economy (ERfKE II), at the request of the Jordan Ministry of Education (MoE). The overarching goal of the project is to allow the MoE to regain control of its EMIS to be able to make better informed decisions within the sector at all levels.
