In Benin and Morocco, the dual system of vocational training already exists. In Côte d’Ivoire, only pilot training centers offer dual type vocational training. The problem in the partner countries as well as in many other countries is that the offer of the professional training centers is not aligned with the demand for technical and professional education of the businesses. The adaptation of supply and demand promises a better employability of the trained people and therefore it increases the competitiveness of local businesses. The project will use the practice of dual vocational training system as it exists in Germany. The cornerstone of the dual system of vocational training is represented by the business associations which play the key role between enterprises and vocational training centers.
The professional education systems in the partner countries are facing multiple challenges. The exchange of good practices and lessons learnt between Morocco, Benin, Côte d’Ivoire, Brazil, El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala will promote improvements in the professional education systems.
Objectives of the project

The specific objective is that the alignment of the offer of technical and vocational education and training (TVET) with the demand as well as the dissemination of interregional comparative analyses (benchmarking) contribute to the reinforcement of TVET systems in the target countries.
