Held in the scope of the Networks of Mediterranean NET-MED Youth Project, this two-day capacity building workshop aims to give to the officials of public institutions involved in the formulation of employment policies, the required knowledge to understand and take part in skills forecasting exercise planned in the Project’s "youth employment" component.

Within the framework of the youth employment component of NET-MED Youth, it is planned to set up, along with the construction of a skills forecasting tool, a series of capacity building activities for national expert’s team in order to provide main stakeholders the required knowledge to better use the model’s results. Thus, a workshop will be organized by UNESCO in partnership with the National Office of Employment and Qualifications of Tunisia (ONEQ).

International external experts will be responsible to introduce and initiate a discussion with the national stakeholders on issues related to skills forecasting (methodology, techniques, comparative experiences, strengths and weaknesses). The second part of the workshop will be devoted to the use of the model’s results in the activities of the various institutions involved.

The NET-MED Youth project is a three-year project (2014-2017) implemented by UNESCO in Eastern and Western Mediterranean countries, and funded by the European Union. It aims at mainstreaming youth issues and priorities across national decision-making and policy implementation. It seeks to achieve this by building the capacities of young people and youth organizations.
