Meeting – VET Reform in Libya

Today, [6.09.2022], I was honored to #participate in the #VETmeeting hosted by the Higher Committee for the VET #Reform in #Libya, at the Economic and Social Development #council to indicate the role and #opportunities of #Erasmus+ programs in Libya for VET REFORM.

Among the most important presented points: the #micro_credential probosal and the setting of national #priorities for technical education #VET in Libya. However, responsibility for VET in Libya managed by VET ministry which is responsible for initial training and supervises (through a board) technical and vocational educational institutions, The Ministry of Labour looks after continuing training. The VET system remains supply-driven, with weak links to the labour market and other stakeholders active in the market; there is no real coordination between vocational schools and employers. The quality of training provided in vocational schools is relatively low due to outdated curricula, an absence of continuing professional development and poorly equipped schools. This has a negative effect on the attractiveness of the system and does not encourage local companies to recruit graduates from vocational schools.
