Youth Employment in the Mediterranean (YEM) is a three-year regional initiative (2018 - 2020) led by UNESCO and funded by the European Union, extended until July 2021. The project targets countries in the South Mediterranean region with the aim to support youth employment through improved skills anticipation and assessment systems, and through the promotion of quality and relevant TVET and regional collaboration.
The overall objective of YEM is to support national authorities, together with the private sector, the TVET providers and the youth organizations in the South Mediterranean region, in understanding and anticipating labour market changes with a view to inform the design, implementation and evaluation of relevant TVET policies, strategies and programmes, aimed at increasing youth employment and entrepreneurship.
For all beneficiary countries, the focus of YEM is to promote the implementation of effective collection and use of information on skills needs, to turn them into relevant policy actions and programmes, and to help establish appropriate governance arrangements to ensure good coordination across the key stakeholders, both within the beneficiary countries and across the South Mediterranean region.
The three specific objectives of the project are:
Access concise, reliable and up-to-date information on TVET systems in the YEM Project countries, and also across the world through the UNESCO-UNEVOC World TVET Database.
Access the knowledge resources developed as part of the YEM Project, as well as relevant publications and resources from UNESCO and other project partners.
Engage with key experts and TVET stakeholders from the region and beyond and learn more about new knowledge resources, collaboration opportunities, upcoming events and more.
Engage in discussions with key experts engaged across the YEM Project countries, and beyond topics of thematic relevance.
This set of practical guidelines aims to inform policymakers, social partners and practitioners in the Southern Mediterranean countries about organizing, implementing, managing, and evaluating effective work-based learning (WBL) programs for young people, including making it inclusive of young women. It proposes guidelines for government, social partners, TVET institutions, workplaces, and individuals to achieve this goal.
The guidelines are informed by country reports from Algeria, Egypt (El-AShmawi, 2017), Jordan (Rawashdeh, 2017), Lebanon (Ghneim, 2017), Palestine (Jweiles, 2017), Morocco (Sennou, 2017), Oman (Al-Mujaini, 2017), Tunisia (Chelbi, 2017) and Algeria (Bedou 2018) initial meeting of country representatives in Beirut in June 2018 and in Rabat in October 2019.
