YEM Project in Lebanon

Skills Forecasting & Assessment

  • Promote ‘Animator’s Guide on Future Occupations and Skills’ as a resource for increasing labour market skills in Engineering, Energy, Oil and gas; Transport and logistics; ICTs; Agriculture and tourism, and Agro-food;
  • Build on labour market forecasting approach developed through NET-MED Youth and National Employment Office (NEO) partnership;
  • Further develop capacities of NEO, NGOs and private sector partners so they can create more sophisticated tools and alternative methods to focus on different stakeholders and their needs (curriculum designers, career counsellors, learners, etc.);
  • Share labour market forecasting results with public stakeholders to inform education and training policy-making and career guidance information;
  • Implement capacity building initiatives for NEO staff (more specifically new NEO employees) and staff from local NGOs
  • Present results from some of the sectoral studies conducted at the regional level and popularize the application of research study recommendations among youth;
  • Discuss results of sectoral studies with different stakeholders, including curricula designers, MEHE (TVET, Higher Education, General Education, CERD) and International NGOs (INGO) in order to create a plan of action going forward;
  • Collaborate with international organisations such as ILO, FAO, and others to strengthen data collection, labour market sectoral studies and analysis.

Digital Skills Development

  • In cooperation with FAO and other organisations, create a Work and Life Skills kit, including basic life skills needed on the job, digital skills and entrepreneurial skills to be used by TVET providers such as MEHE – DGVTE, the Ministry of Agriculture, and other TVET institutions.

Work-based Learning

  • Promote TVET as a quality and attractive education option, especially for young women;
  • Develop a new framework for accelerated TVET, taking into consideration labour market needs, existing Work-Based Learning models, flexibility, certification, technical skills and transferable skills;
  • Provide relevant career guidance based on labour forecasting results.

Regional Platform for Cooperation

  • Collaborate with other countries in sharing experience in sectoral analysis;
  • Learn from experiences of other countries to deepen understanding of digital and entrepreneurial skills, skills anticipation, and approaches to promoting TVET, especially for girls and women in work-based learning;
  • Actively use the regional knowledge platform to post experiences, gather information, share good practices and lessons learnt from skills assessment and anticipation methodologies and results, policy issues, curricula development, and other related developments and innovations in TVET;
  • Build upon strengthened TVET structures and other outcomes of the GEMM project.
