mfpeThe Ministry of Education and Employment in Tunisia provides professional and vocational programs and works with the government to ensure a well-directed employment policy. Furthermore, it supports job seekers, companies and offers all related services. www.emploi.gov.tn


Tunisia becomes more and more interesting for German companies with its competitive, up-to-scratch economy and its well-directed macroeconomic aggregates. Nonetheless, and despite these positive facts, there is a lack of qualified workforce and vocational training methods in general. The project BRIDGE aims at exporting and adapting the German apprenticeship model and vocational training methods to the needs in Tunisia via remote service. Therefore BRIDGE intends to develop a sustainable educational training which involves all employees within a company: workers, specialists and managers. Furthermore, the German dual system of vocational training shall be made exportable for other training providers in the medium and long term.
