Ministry of Education and Technical Education
وزارة التربية و التعليم و التعليم الفني (MoETE)

UNEVOC Centre (Ministry) since 1995

Founded in 1836, the Ministry of Education and Technical Education (MoETE) is the main government institution in Egypt that is responsible for basic education; kindergarten to grade 12. While governed by the laws and legislations of the Egyptian constitution, MoETE endorses and ensures equal opportunity for education to all, with more than 50 thousand public schools providing free education for more that 22 million students.

Since 2014, the Egyptian government has set education reform as one of its top national development priorities. In the academic year 2018/2019, the MoETE launched the new vision for education in Egypt; implementing the new system, ‘Education 2.0’, on pre K and grade 1, modifying the secondary education system with implementing ‘Education 1.1’, as well as adapting a new system of technical education with international standards, ‘Technical Education 2.0’.

Education 2.0 follows a multi-disciplinary learning approach whereby language, math, social studies and science will all be taught together in an integrated and interlinked package, by the same teacher following specific themes that provide structure for the class discussions, projects and activities.

MoETE also focuses on incorporating technology in the education system, the reason why the ministry introduced ‘Education 1.1’; a revamped secondary school system, where students utilize new technologies such as a tablet to access the Egyptian Knowledge bank —one of the world’s largest digital libraries. Besides technology, ‘Education 1.1’ aims to promote learning for life and endorsing the way students learn through understanding and not memorizing. The examination for the new system ensures students’ understanding of the material as it is relying on the ‘open-book’ examination style.

Further, MoETE realizes the importance of technical education and vocational training and their role in qualifying a large number of young people, as it can provide with skills and capabilities allowing them to meet the needs of the job market for highly educated, well-trained and greatly skilled workforce that is able to deal with up-to-date technology. The ‘Technical Education 2.0’ is an innovative program that will be the spearhead of the transformation of the Egyptian Technical and vocational Education and training system, based on a new vision and sustainable approach for the development of the future Egyptian professional work force. The academic year 2018/2019 saw the introduction of a new system observing the implementation of its first blocks through the “Applied Technology Schools”; a collaboration between MoETE and private sector in the labor market, as well as international accreditation institutes.



Mission

'Education 2.0’ aims to build the student’s capacity and skills for problem solving, creativity, critical thinking, negotiation, teamwork, and other skills that help them to develop their personalities and deal with the issues of the age. The new system encampasses bold interventions to modernize the education system to create a generation capable of achieving Egypt Vision 2030, to bring back learning to the classroom in an attractive and exciting way reflecting the needs and interests of the generation.


Objectives

Technical Education 2.0 has five key transformation pillars that the ministry is currently implementing, the pillars are:

  • T1- Transformed Quality of Technical Education, by establishing the appropriate internal quality systems and standards according to national and international accreditation bodies
  • T2-Transformed Relevance of Technical Education by Transferring to Competency-based Curricula, focusing on ensuring that the student acquires the 21st century skills and competencies to create a society that learns, thinks and innovates
  • T3-Transformed Teachers through Training & Qualification, by establishing a dedicated academy for technical teachers training
  • T4-Transformed Schools through Employer Engagement through Developing & Expanding Work-based Learning, and introducing the PPP model of Applied Technology Schools
