In the framework of the Youth Employment in the Mediterranean (YEM) project, funded by the European Union, around 30 participants met at UNESCO, Paris, for a Capacity-building and Planning session on Skills Anticipation.

The aim was to share the knowledge and experience regarding challenges and solutions in the field of skills anticipation, and discuss how to fine-tune the skills anticipation methodology for the beneficiary countries participating in skills anticipation activities in the YEM project: Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine and Tunisia.

YEM builds on the achievements of the EU-funded NET-MED Youth project’s Employment Component. It has helped build skills anticipation models and mobilized key national stakeholders, including national institutions, youth and private sector representatives, to understand and employ the results from this exercise in service of policymaking for technical and vocational education and training (TVET).

The YEM project is funded by the European Union and implemented over a three-year period (2018-2020). Its aim is to support youth employment and entrepreneurship in the Mediterranean region by improving skills anticipation and TVET systems.
