(ANSAmed) - BRUSSELS, AUGUST 20 - The European Union is funding a programme to improve Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) in the Palestinian territory, aiming for a better match-up between training and labour market demand.

According to the Enpi website (, the EU and the Palestinian Authority signed five implementation agreements for TVET development projects in the following fields: car mechatronics, food production & waitering, air conditioning & refrigerating, office & home appliance, and fashion designing.

With a budget of 4 million euros, this four-year EU funded programme is being implemented by the German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ). It aims at strengthening and scaling up TVET institutions in three pilot regions of the Governorates of Bethlehem, Nablus and Hebron, as well as encouraging partnership between local institutions for technical and vocational education and labour market (LET Councils) and the private sector. It will focus on curriculum development, training of trainers and teachers, the upgrading of equipment, and capacity building in educational administration, with the aim of making TVET institutions more effective and attractive learning places, which are relevant to labour market demand.(ANSAmed).
