The Kafaat Liljamia Project was launched in 2017 with the main aim of supporting the development of a governance model for the regional labour market training system. It is remarkable the fact that 40% of Tanger’s population (974.000 inhabitants) is under 20 years old; it is a pretty “young city”, which means youth employment policies are crucial for the future of its citizens.
The model of regional governance envisaged should make it possible to better take into account a double aspiration: the young population, eager to integrate into the active life, and that of the economic sector in search of a qualified workforce and adapted to its needs to ensure sustainable development.
The implementation comprises two main axes:
1) Governance / Coordination axis
Support for coordination between local actors in vocational training, both public and private sector, to better meet the expectations of the labour market, by proposing at the local level a vocational training offer of quality and adapted
Concretely, from Regional Working Groups – GTR, will be organized:
2) Grant axis
The € 900,000 grant program will support local vocational training or technical skills initiatives aimed at ensuring the inclusion of out-of-work groups.
In parallel and complementary, a grant program will support local initiatives to ensure the inclusion of out-of-work groups, in partnership with RWGs.
