Through policy dialogue events, we create opportunity to share experience, lessons and good practice from the UK and explore important priorities for skills and employability in Morocco.
Our seminars and policy dialogues convene experts and policy makers to build on learning from the UK skills sector and facilitate collaboration that meets both the individual and shared needs of Morocco and the UK.
In the framework of the Kafaat Liljamia project, funded by the European Union and implemented by the British Council and the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID), 16 Moroccan delegates participated in a study tour to Manchester on the development and provision of TVET by the private sector. Delegates spent a fascinating week learning how the United Kingdom delivers technical and vocational education through public-private partnerships.
The provision of TVET by public educational institutions is well understood and practised worldwide. However, as systems seek to be more responsive to the labour market and to make provision more flexible, what role does the private sector play in the provision of training? In England, private training providers have higher employer satisfaction rates for apprentices and have become an integral and valued part of the sector. Public-private partnerships are also well established. Participants at this event looked at how the private sector can be involved in the provision of TVET and what policy makers can do to enable this.
