Based on the test and personal interview findings, the candidates will be divided into two levels of knowledge to which the courses will be adapted.

Participant Feedback – Feedback questionnaires will be sent to course participants three times (initially, mid-course and end-of-course) and this feedback will be integrated into the program.
Feedback received in individual and group conversations with participants – Individual calls are held by the program coordinator once a month throughout the program, and group meetings are held once a month by the program coordinator. Furthermore, phone calls and sample calls will be made by the AlManarah project manager to receive ongoing reports from the coordinators.
