Kiron Lebanon at a glance:
Three main pillars of our approach
Kiron provides the opportunity for the students to take online courses and workshops on the Kiron Campus to prepare them for the job market and other landing opportunities they wish for. The students feel more confident and prepared to access the job market.
Kiron offers tailored online and in-person guidance to students depending on the goals that they want to achieve, whether they want to go to university or envisage other pathways. Students have access to our online forum, help center, mentoring services and others, as well as in-person office hours and welcome sessions.
Kiron proposes a blended education initiative, consisting of a digital learning certificate program and peer-to-peer support components. Students are organized in groups and offered access to study centers in different regions of Lebanon. With computers, an internet connection, students pursue their online studies with a tutor present to guide them through the course, and give complementary offline academic support.
Promote and advance the culture of online learning by increasing access to it and the recognition on a broad national level through partnerships with multiple stakeholders, students, faculty members, and NGOS.
