Educating Case Study: Students for Jobs, Stability, and Growth Luminus

Transforming Vocational Education in Jordan


IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, is the largest global

development institution focused exclusively on leveraging

the power of the private sector to tackle the world’s most

pressing development challenges. Working with private

enterprises in more than 100 countries, IFC uses its capital,

expertise and influence to help eliminate extreme poverty

and promote shared prosperity.


Expanding access to quality and affordable education is

a central element to eliminating extreme poverty and

promoting shared prosperity. In developing countries, private

education providers play a critical role in the delivery of

education, skills, and training that is affordable and relevant

to the needs of the labor markets.

IFC’s focus on inclusive business looks specifically at

companies that expand access to goods, services, and

income-generating opportunities for people living at the

base of the pyramid. By combining purpose with profit,

inclusive businesses redefine business-as-usual.

IFC’s education and inclusive business practices jointly

develop case studies that highlight success stories in

education related to scale, skills, and affordability and to

reaching those who are under-served.
