His Majesty Mohammed VI, King of Morocco

Kigali: His Majesty Mohammed VI, King of Morocco, chaired, on Monday 1st of October 2018, at the Rabat royal palace, a working session on upgrading vocational training offer, diversifying and developing jobs and modernizing pedagogical methods, said a statement by the Royal Office.

The meeting is in line with the implementation of the priorities and measures set by the monarch, especially in the Speeches on the Throne Day and Aug. 20, when His Majesty drew attention anew to the issue of youth employment, in relation mainly to the issue of balance between training and employment.

After he was informed about the propositions and measures to be taken by the concerned departments relating to the implementation of the royal instructions, the King has gave his instructions for the development of new trainings in promising sectors and businesses, while upgrading training in the so-called traditional jobs, which remain the main providers of jobs for young people such as the sectors of industry, services, construction, agriculture, fisheries, water, energy and handicraft.

In this regard, HM has particularly emphasized the need to further develop the vocational training offer, by adopting new standards of quality, notably in the tourism and health sectors.
The King has given his instructions to develop short-term skills trainings of about four months, integrating language and technical modules for people with experience in the informal sector, with a view to give them the opportunity to gain access to the formal sector and enhance their know-how and abilities.

At the end of this meeting, the King gave his instructions so that this committee, which is chaired by the head of government, elaborates and submits within three weeks a program of specific projects and measures for immediate application which will be financed notably with the participation of Hassan II Fund.
