Youth Employment in the Mediterranean is a 36-month regional project funded by the European Union and implemented by UNESCO over the period of 2018-2020. The project targets eight beneficiary countries in the South Mediterranean region: Algeria, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine and Tunisia, where the aim is to support youth employment through improved skills anticipation and assessment systems, and through the promotion of quality and relevant TVET and regional collaboration.
The project is aligned with the UNESCO Strategy for TVET (2016-2021) which highlights the need for inclusive policy dialogue and reinforcement of stakeholders’ capacities to promote TVET transformation in order to foster youth employment, entrepreneurship and improved skills anticipation, in the framework of the Sustainable Development Goal 4 and the Education 2030 Framework for Action.
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 in online exchanges on thematic areas of interest within YEM.
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.
