A closer alliance between vocational education and business as a way of addressing the high number of young Tunisians not in employment, education and training (NEET) was the subject of the latest round of regional-level meetings of the ETF’s Torino Process – a participatory analytical review of the status and progress of vocational education and training (VET) in the ETF partner countries – held in Tunisia this week.
Participants from Gabes, Medenine and Sfax discussed how vocational education and training, and building stronger partnerships between providers and enterprise, could help to address this. But they stressed that solutions would need to be tailored individually to the different regions.
The discussions feed into the Torino Process regional report, where participating countries share common challenges and solutions in VET development and governance.
