Torino Process - Israel
This document provides a survey of Israel’s plans to increase the number of students in technological and vocational tracks, and in technological schools; and to invest in educational infrastructures, including advanced workshops and laboratories in schools, and regional technology centres. It also describes the ‘Technicians with Matriculation’ (Tech-Mat) programme, the ‘Springboard to Industry’ programme, programmes to develop a cadre of professional teaching staff for technological education, and refresher courses for teachers in cooperation with industry. It includes a proposal to offer special compensation to technology education teachers so that their salaries compete with those in the industrial sector. This would include remuneration for mentoring projects and developing innovative programmes.
