HRD To Build Training Center In Benghazi

According to the Libyan Herald, a new vocational and educational training center is to be built in Benghazi by the Human Resources Development Service of Korea (HRD Korea), in a project funded by the Libyan government.

The $13.6 million deal will see HRD Korea build an institute that is an exact replica of a centre in South Korea. When it's completed, the center will accommodate approximately 900 students.

HRD Korea has also signed a $94.8 million contract with the Libyan Ministry of Labour and the Warrior Affairs Commission (WAC) to send Libyans to South Korea to study in vocational training programs.

The contract for this vocational education and training export project between HRD Korea and the Ministry of Labour was signed two days ago. This opportunity will allow close to 1,400 Libyans, chosen by the Ministry of Labour, to undertake six-months of vocational training courses in South Korea. Fields of study for those chosen to participate include electronics, mechanics, welding and plumbing.

    An Observation.
    I feel it strange that Korea has been chosen to introduce Vocational training to Libya.
    As an expert in this field of some 25 years experience and qualified Mechanical Engineer, the Korean model was originally based on the UK NVQ system. There are a number of differences that make the Korean model somewhat narrower than UK's,with successful UK candidates having a much greater diagnostic ability once qualified.
