In Libya, three years after the deep political crisis that led to instability in the country and despite a renewed escalation of an armed internal conflict, stakeholders have requested the European Training Foundation (ETF) to facilitate a wide-ranging discussion on how to improve the quality of vocational education in the country. This report is the result of a series of subsequent workshops conducted under the auspices of the Ministry of Education.

These workshops were led by the ETF over the course of 2018 and attended by representatives from various Libyan institutions across all regions.

In the workshops, the participants engaged in a structured discussion on the state of vocational education and training (VET) in their country, collected relevant evidence and agreed on its interpretation.

This report reflects the outcome of this process. It is meant to serve as a point of reference for decision makers, the international community and anyone else who is interested in Libya and its VET system and requires up-to-date information that is as reliable as possible and vetted by a representative selection of national stakeholders: VET professionals, beneficiaries and decision makers.
