The National Observatory of Employment and Skills (ONEQ) of Tunisia, with the support of UNESCO in the context of the project Youth Employment in the Mediterranean (YEM), funded by the European Union, organized the second capacity-building seminar on the development of prospective scenarios in Tunis on April 17 and 18, 2019.

The implementation of these exercises together with the main economic sectors of Tunisia aims to complement the skills forecasting model developed as part of the previous project NET-MED Youth, funded by the European Union, with a qualitative prospective analysis. The combined use of these tools aims to strengthen the Tunisian vocational training system through a forecast of the job demand of the labor market.

The next steps, in the context of YEM, include an in-depth and prospective analysis of two pilot sectors by ONEQ, as well as a second Tunisian skills projection exercise, in coordination with all stakeholders of the National Platform.
