Higher level vocational education and training (VET) programmes are facing rapid change and intensifying challenges. This report on Egypt examines what type of training is needed to meet the needs of a changing economy,  how programmes should be funded,  how theyshould be linked to academic and university programmes and how employers and unions can be engaged.  The country reports in this series look at these and other questions. They form part of Skills beyond School, the OECD policy review of postsecondary vocational education and training.



Developing workplace learning

In the strongest vocational education and training (VET) systems, workplace learning plays a central role, while in Egypt, it seems to be relatively absent in many post-secondary VET programmes. Workplace learning is a powerful tool for developing both hard and soft skills, for transitioning students into employment, engaging employers and linking the mix of training provision to employers’ needs. This chapter advances recommendations to develop workplace learning as a systematic, creditbearing, quality assured, and mandatory element in vocational programmes.
