YEM Project in Morocco

Skills Forecasting & Assessment

  • Increase further the involvement of enterprises in the governance of TVET in order to reduce the skills gap;
  • Review the nomenclature used by different organisations for the elaboration of evaluation studies;
  • Create synergies between different actors to better respond to labour market demands in terms of skills, and centralization of data collection at the national level;
  • Develop mechanisms and tools for harmonisation of processes for anticipation and assessment of labour market demands and on creating synergies for developing relevant programmes;
  • Adopt specific sector case studies and plan to include other sectors as the project expands;
  • Augment skills forecasting exercises conducted under the NET-MED Youth project, and the development of prospective scenarios to ascertain the skills gap between graduates of training programmes and the labour market needs.

Digital Skills Development

  • Mainstream digital skills in TVET programmes;
  • Develop appropriate resources like regional guidelines to reinforce capacities for better implementation of this component.

Work-based Learning

  • Improve career guidance and counselling systems;
  • Expand workplace learning opportunities to facilitate school to work transition;
  • Diversify monitoring tools for labour markets to ensure easy adaptation of training programmes to the changing labour market needs;
  • Promote subnational initiatives in promoting youth employment through TVET;
  • Reinforce work-based learning, particularly for girls and women, as it is a key priority area of the TVET strategy in Morocco.

Regional Platform for Cooperation

  • Participate in regular consultative foras - conferences and seminars, to facilitate exchange of experiences and good practices;
  • Link to platforms with international organisations (UNESCO, OECD, IBRD) and with countries in Africa, Europe etc. to access relevant databases and experts;
  • Organize capacity building to upgrade methodologies and indicators employed in skills assessment and anticipation models;
  • Participants consider that Morocco can bring to the regional dialogue its approaches to partnership with the employers’ associations and experience in work-based learning.
