Challenges faced in implementation
In all countries, one of the main challenges faced by EFE relates to the several Covid-19 waves and concomitant lockdowns and restrictions to in-person gatherings and travel. During 2020, EFE successfully pivoted to online and at-distance learning, through platforms such as Zoom or Google Meet or Hangouts, as well as EFE’s new Learning Management System (LMS), which includes custom configurations, integration with EFE's Student Management System (SMS) on Salesforce, and deployment for all EFE Affiliates. The website and course materials are available in all three of EFE's target languages (English, French, and Arabic), a critical component in ensuring the accessibility for EFE participants. Inside each course, participants can have access to a variety of interactive materials to support their learning journey in addition to live course instruction provided by certified EFE trainers on other above-mentioned platforms. EFE is currently providing training and job matching services to youth online, in-person or in a blended format.
