EU Southern Neighbourhood

This page is also available in
Civil society is a key partner in the development of skills and vocational education and training. Close to the communities on the ground, Civil Society Organisations (CSOs), including NGOs, associations, youth groups, community-based organisations, etc., help to shape development cooperation strategies.

To find out more about this important contribution, the European Training Foundation (ETF), is conducting a survey aimed at CSOs in Algeria, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine* and Tunisia.

Available in English, French and Arabic, the survey is open to CSOs working to support any aspect of vocational education and training, including skills development and needs assessment, youth employability, Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) support, non-formal and adult learning, support for migrants and other vulnerable groups. 

The information will help to advocate the important role played by CSOs in the vocational education and training policy cycle, from strategy formulation and policy development through to implementation, monitoring, evaluation and review.

Participation is anonymous and takes around 30 minutes. The ETF will distribute the findings will be disseminated later in 2019.
