In the 2014-17 ENI-South programming, priority is given to issues linked to labour market reform and inclusive growth and competitiveness. It will also contribute to EU external assistance interventions to maximise their efficiency and impact, based on the ETF's country and thematic policy analysis.
The ETF will also continue the work on multilevel governance, consolidating and disseminating the results of the Médenine project. It will consolidate via the finalisation of a tool kit including the different methodological instruments used in Médenine and including inputs of other regional projects led by Tunisian stakeholders and other donors (e.g. for skills needs analysis, capitalisation notes on pilot experiences for example the best way to set up and facilitate a local observatory network) and disseminsation workshops in other regions.
In the field of qualifications, Tunisia is part of the Qualiifications for the Mediterranean initiatives, which involves also Egypt, Jordan and Morocco, and whose expected outcomes include a comparison of sectoral qualifications systems, the finalisation of country reports comparing common profiles to national qualifications, the development of selected new common profiles to national qualifications, the development of selected new common profiles and peer learning and capacity building. This will be done by working with the national teams (composed of representatives from sectors and national institutions in charge of qualifications) in using the methodology to develop the new profiles, compare national profiles to the common profiles and identify the gaps that will eventually lead to development in national qualifications.
