Transition to
Work

Through offering career guidance, entrepreneurship opportunities, apprenticeships, internships and supplying cutting-edge resources such as the Labour Market Information System (LMIS), TVET Egypt manages the smooth transition of students from education to employment. The programme does not only lead their integration into the workforce, but it also bridges the gap between the private sector’s demand for a higher skill standard and the need for an educated, qualified and skilled workforce.

Labour Market Information System (LMIS)

TVET Egypt contributes to effectively enhancing the educational knowledge base through a cutting-edge information hub that analyses trends in the Egyptian market under the cooperation of various ministries and government entities led by the Ministry of Planning, Monitoring and Administrative Reform. LMIS identifies the most prominent sectors and industries across Egypt’s governorates, and supports policymakers in strategic decisions related to, for instance, increasing the volume of schools in a specific area to meet the expected future demand for labour. It also provides employers with data that helps them drive their industries to places across Egypt with a higher TVET output of students who have received industry-specific training.

The LMIS is run by a team of economists and researchers who aim to optimize sectors resources nationwide through gathering raw data and making information available to all stakeholders.

To ensure sustainable development, the programme follows up on the advancement of TVET graduates in the private sector, where tracer studies are conducted to verify the efficiency of the training students received and their relevance to their jobs. Accordingly, this helps identify any gaps and use findings to improve the overall workings of the sector.
