AMMAN — The Jordan Strategy Forum has published a research paper within a series of documents entitled “Jordan’s position in the Global Skills Report 2022” to highlight the country’s position in the Global Skills Report of the Coursera Educational Platform in 2022, Al-Ghad News reported.اضافة اعلان

With regard to the importance of automation and digital technologies, the forum said that the advantages were numerous, with the most significant being the increased levels of productivity, and higher quality of services.

The World Economic Forum’s (WEF) Future Jobs Report 2020–2025 predicted that as a result of the technological evolution, 85 million jobs will be eliminated by the middle of this decade, while 97 million new jobs will be created to keep pace with the future technical demands.

The WEF said that Jordan’s skill level fell by about eight places from 2021, with the Kingdom ranking 76 out of 102 at the global level, and 6 out of 13 at the Arab level in 2022.

Learners in Jordan need to improve their competitive skills in databases, operating systems, computer networks, network development, computer programming, cloud computing and software engineering, the report urged.

The forum also recommended that all stakeholders pay due attention to the areas of technology, and data science to support Jordan’s digital transformation goals.

The WEF also suggested that Jordanian learners improve their data science skills by developing their math skills, automated learning, statistical programming, presentation, management, and analysis of data.
