Egypt’s Minister of Education, Tarek Shawky, has signed a cooperation protocol with Egypt Gold to launch the first government-backed technical school which will specialize in the making of accessories and jewelry.

Shawky further explained that this step is an attempt towards shifting the focus of technical education towards applied schools.

 

The minister also explained that ten other technical schools similar to this have already been launched but are tackling different fields such as agricultural and industrial, with the aim of changing the way that technical education is perceived in Egypt and end the stereotypes surrounding them.

The admission will be open until mid-September and eligible students are those with preparatory certificate from schools in Greater Cairo.

The school is located in Obour City and according to Shawky, four or five more branches will be opened. Moreover, students will also be granted a salary and will have two theoretical courses and four practical.

Mostafa Nassar, representative of Egypt Gold, said that there is a lack of technicians in the field of gold and jewelry making and so with the opening of the school, there will be qualified Egyptians ready to taken on jobs in commercial, agricultural and industrial fields.

TV Host Tamer Amin Reinstated and Back on Air After Facing Serious Accusations

Published

By

TV presenter Tamer Amin has been reinstated and permitted to resume his TV show ”Akher El Nahar”on Al-Nahar channel after being accused of misogyny and sexism.

The accusations came after Amin insulted the husband of Olympic swimmer, gynecologist, and member of parliament Rania Elwani during a segment that was aired in June.

Elwani was praising her husband’s support and how he is handling the family and the kids to allow her to succeed as a global sports hero, a medical professional and a politician.

“He has supported me a lot. …In 2004, for instance, he was passing around flyers for my parliamentary election campaign,” she said, adding that her husband was tutoring their children at the moment of the interview.

That was when Amin started to mock the husband for doing what he considered as feminine duties saying, “How do you feel, Dr. Hany, when you’re walking across your reception or living room and find a trophy case with 48 medals and 97 trophies, etc., when the most you have ever achieved is winning a backgammon game at the neighborhood coffee shop?”

 

That of course triggered the National Council for Women to file  complaint against him with the Supreme Media Council. The show was briefly taken off air especially that he wasn’t even registered with Egypt’s Media Syndicate meaning that he wasn’t licensed to act as a media professional.

Now, the TV presenter is reinstated after having submitted all the needed paperwork for him to join Egypt’s Media Syndicate and work under its bylaws and policies.
