Enhancing employer engagement in the design and development of effective skills solutions

Human resource development against a backdrop of raising youth unemployment is a challenge facing governments and educators throughout the Middle East and North Africa. Creating conditions for employers to own and drive the skills agenda is essential to the development of effective solutions.

The Enhancing Employer Engagement in the Design and Development of Effective Skills Solutions workshop, held in Amman in September 2015, brought together 26 professionals from six countries across the Middle East and North Africa. The aim was to share knowledge and experiences and discuss good practice partnership models that enhance skills investment against the backdrop of the global race to develop and deploy the talent needed in an innovation-driven economy. 

Delegates left the workshop with straightforward strategies and tools to support them in driving forward change.  The workshop report sets out the conclusions and suggestions for next steps.
