Forsah Technical and Vocational Education Training Activity
Forsah TVET supports technical and vocational education and training (TVET) institutions to better prepare Palestinians graduates for the labor market, and to productively engage in local and regional economies.
By enhancing TVET institution’s capacity to respond to the needs of the private sector, creating partnerships between TVET institutions, private sector firms, and youth in specific sectors, and increasing enrollment in TVET program, Forsah TVET will help supply skilled TVET graduates and create an enabling environment for sustainable supply-demand associations and meaningful youth participation. Through partnership with non-governmental Palestinian TVET institutions, Forsah TVET will collaboratively develop new or upgraded training programs. These programs will support Palestinian career paths and link students to employment opportunities, or help them start their own businesses, in increasingly in-demand sectors. Through partnerships, Forsah TVET supports TVET institutions’ responsiveness to the needs of the private sector and the effects of climate change; creates new partnerships between the TVET institutions and the private sector; and increases the number of skilled graduates. In addition, Forsah TVET will support enhanced career development services and mentorships for students. Forsah TVET activities will work with youth to improve awareness of TVET programs and increase student enrollment in partner institutions. Through Forsah TVET, partner TVET institutions across the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem will work collaboratively to enhance the quality, relevance, and access of their training programs, building their capacity to respond to the needs of the private sector and build partnerships with private sector firms and youth in specific sectors. Through Forsah TVET, partner TVET institutions will have improved performance, accessible green facilities, and well-established relationships with private sector actors, enabling them to sustainably respond to and predict workforce demand and the effects of climate change.
