Tunisia - Employment and Training Fund (English)

The objectives of the Employment and Training Fund Project are: (a) to accelerate the adaptation of the labor force to rapidly changing job patterns; and (b) to consolidate existing human capital by developing in-company training activities. The project finances the creation of a regionally based Employment and Training Fund and an institutional development program. The Employment and Training Fund consists of: (a) training for placement in a specific enterprise; (b) training for self-employment; (c) in-company training / extension services; (d) sub-contracting to private training / placement companies; and (e) allowances for interview / relocation closer to job site. The institutional development program assists the Office of Vocational Training and Employment (OFPE) in its efforts to improve the quality and efficiency of its employment / training regional services and to promote the development of private intermediaries.
