Background

High unemployment, especially youth unemployment, is one of Egypt’s most pressing problems. The reasons are rapid population growth, macroeconomic problems, inadequate job placement services and a lack of job-market relevance in education and training. While the dual training system is ahead of other training options, the quality of the training must be improved further so that it is better tailored to the requirements of the business sector. For the project to have an impact at macroeconomic level, there are currently too few trainees enrolled in a dual training programme.

Objective

The objective of the project "Enhancement of the Egyptian Dual System (EEDS)” is: The number of trainees in a dual education and training programme of appropriate quality is increased. The project is part of the infrastructure program, which is being implemented to avoid flight causes and to integrate refugees and migrants in the Middle East, Middle East and Africa. The project creates perspectives on the national labor market and contributes to economic and social stabilization in the region.
