The following are the main government bodies involved in TVET in Tunisia.
The ministry has overall responsibility for VET (continued and initial), and oversees the agencies managing these two streams. It is currently responsible for the development of the NQF (CNQ), working with CENAFFIF to do this. MANFORME I and II also fall within its area of responsibility.
ATFP is responsible for all the non-continued VET delivery in public schools. It also oversees private training providers delivering nationally recognised qualifications (e.g. CAP, BTS, BTP).
CENAFFIF is responsible for developing programmes for initial VET, and for training trainers and teachers at their centres.
The CNFCPP is responsible for running the TFP (taxe formation professionnelle). Each employer must pay a 1 or 2 % tax every year to cover training for its employees. These funds are then managed by CNFCPP, which approves requests for training by employers. It releases the funds for training and may recommend a training provider where possible (this is not formal – private training providers are not accredited).
Similar to Sector Skills Councils, these organisations work with government/education to analyse work tasks in order to create competences relevant to working life.
ANETI provides advice and guidance for young unemployed graduates, or those who are employed but wish to change their career direction. It also works with universities on careers advice. It helps with CV writing etc., and offers a job matching service. Its clients are job seekers and employers alike. It also works with countries that have asked for workers in certain sectors to relocate from Tunisia, and provides selection, training and preparation for work overseas.
The Ministry of Employment and Professional Integration of Youth promotes employment and training opportunities in Tunisia.
