His Excellency the Governor of the Technical and Vocational Training Corporation, Dr. Ahmed Al-Fahaid, has approved a number of projects for the girls' training sector as an investment for the support given by the government of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques and His Highness the Crown Prince, may Allah preserve them. These projects support the expansion of girls' training opportunities and qualify them for the labor market. These projects include opening two specialized colleges for girls (the Digital Technical College for Girls in Al-Ahsa and the Applied Technical College for Girls in Riyadh) and eight technical colleges for girls in some Kingdom regions starting from the following training year 1443 AH. The eight technical colleges for girls will be in different areas as following: Shaqra, Al-Majmaah, Al-Quwaiyah and Wadi Al-Dawasir College (in Riyadh region); Onaiza College (in Qassim region); Belqarn and Al-Namas College (in Asir region); and Qurayyat College (in Al-Jouf region). These colleges will provide many training opportunities for diploma programs that give an intermediate university degree qualification in the following majors: Computer Technologies (technical support, Office machine maintenance, networks administration, multimedia systems management, web technologies, and software); Administrative technologies (insurance, logistics management, and e-commerce); Tourism Technologies (event management and tourism guidance); and Design and Decoration Technologies. Vacant seats will be announced upon the opening of the admission and registration portal after the completion of the operational requirements. This brings the total number of technical colleges for girls to 39 in the regions of the Kingdom. This number reflects the role of the TVTC in achieving the Kingdom's Vision 2030's goals by raising women's participation in the national economy, which provides them with training chances in technical and professional fields that help their acquisition of distinguished skills and knowledge in these fields.
