  • Improve the reliability of forecasting and assessment results to develop corresponding tools related to specific needs;
  • Set-up coordination mechanisms and produce appropriate resources for a specific sector (tourism) based on the work conducted by different organisations and technical and financial partners;
  • Organize capacity building activities for stakeholders to use skills anticipation tools and results to inform TVET policy making.

Digital Skills Development

  • Define digital skills to be incorporated in TVET programmes in cooperation with concerned entities;
  • Support the internship scheme organized by the Ministry of Education for TVET learners;
  • Identify potential partnerships to support teacher training efforts in the use of the new toolbox.

Work-based Learning

  • Promote TVET as a quality and attractive education option, especially for young women;

  • Collaborate with the MedUp! project on social entrepreneurship.

Regional Platform for Cooperation

  • Continue knowledge sharing activities by participating in sub-regional and regional events and workshops;
  • Contribute approaches to partnership with the employers’ association and an approach to the life skills toolbox (entrepreneurship) to the regional dialogue;
  • Exchange ideas with countries that have strong and well-established work-based learning schemes (Egypt, Morocco and Tunisia) and skills anticipation and assessment experience (Tunisia);
