Rabat | 3-4 October 2019
Stakeholders representing industry, policy and training institutions from across six YEM Partner countries participated at the YEM Regional Workshop on Work-Based Learning in Rabat. This workshop also saw the launch of a Regional Report on WBL that provides a set of general findings and guidelines about how to advance the provision of WBL experiences for the youth in the YEM Countries and the broader Arab States.
As the youth represent a growing segment of the working-age population across the Southern Mediterranean region and the Arab states, addressing skills mismatches to promote employment opportunities for the youth remains a critical challenge. In this context, the integration of on-the-job training into technical education and training institutions, as well as the improvement of the quality of on-the-job learning, are seen as powerful vehicles for improving the quality of training and employability of young people.
