WHY VOCATIONAL EDUCATION IMAGE PROMOTION?
The countries in the MENA region are facing numerous economic, social and environmental challenges – a globalising economy with growing interdependencies, intensive labour migration flows within the region and worldwide, the demographic gift of a growing population with more than 100 million of young people entering into the labour market throughout the next decades and the increase of new technologies.
Hence, employment promotion became one of the most pressing demands all over the MENA region. The working groups of the sector network SN MENA are currently approaching the subject from different perspectives, since the majority of its member programmes are facing the urgent need of promoting employment and creating jobs.
One of the findings within the sector network has been vocational education and labour market programmes that foster employment can only be implemented successfully if the image of professional education in the partner countries improves at the same time.
Against this background, the careful design of image promotion measures adapted to the context - that also reflect the different challenges regarding the social significance of vocational education - is required.
As this approach is usually not a standard element of development cooperation programmes, and as promoting vocational education can be a time and resource consuming task, a toolbox with ready-made approaches including good and less recommendable practices, comes in handy.
