The British Council Sana’a held an Internet and Website training course Feb/ 1 to 5. The training was run in the NCC facilities and trainer was Matthias Leibbrand from the International Community Services.
The 12 participants were representatives of Yemeni partner institutions including the National Women Committee, the Parliament, the National Population Council, as well as the Yemeni British Friendship Association and the British Embassy; the British Council was represented by one of its employees.
In addition to the professional use of Internet, the training program covered the significant issue of website design and website updating, which is a main concern by many organizations. This is because the common procedure is that these organizations get their website preliminary designed and set-up by a specialist, but the staff are usually not trained on the crucial process of updating the site. During the training course the participants designed their own websites and some even put them life.
The closing session was attended by HMA to Sana’a Frances Guy, Director of the British Council Adrian Chadwick, and chairperson of the Woman National Committee Rashida AlHamdani.
HMA handed out attendance certificates to all participants.
