The EU is funding a pilot project supporting vocational education and training in Libya. It aims to enhance the availability of qualified human resources based on the skills requirements of the labour market, and to strengthen institutional and social partner capacities accordingly. It is the first donor-funded intervention of its kind in Libya.
The project includes activities within a selected number of vocational schools and colleges across the country, seeking to bring together a range of stakeholders in developing practical and sustainable solutions to issues of unemployment, private sector growth and the changing role of the TVET system.
It presents an opportunity to support dialogue and generate lessons learned to inform both long-term policy and strategic development within the sector.
The project is being implemented by the British Council as the lead contractor for a consortium which includes AARHUS Tech (Denmark) and the National Institute for Education (Czech Republic).
