In 2021 The Hague Academy developed an Orange Knowledge training programme for Luminus University College (LTUC) in Jordan. LTUC’s model is built on strong labour market linkages however the high rates of dropouts mainly among refugee students and lack of completion of the application process hinders that strength. By providing the vulnerable youth (national and non-national) with programmes adapted to their needs and offering more participatory, inclusive, and trauma-sensitive teaching, retention will be improved and the number of dropouts during admission, studies, and employment will decrease.
