Printer-friendly versionPDF version

This National TVET Strategy replaces the former edition adopted in 1999. It reflects an important paradigm shift of recent years which places quality and relevance of TVET as its priority. Major contents are accepted and have been updated. The new structure follows the inner logic of consistent and feasible TVET system. It integrates binding in all parts of the TVET system in the labour sector. Global experience has shown that the mere expansion of TVET does not solve the problems of unemployment and low productivity of the economy. TVET has to respond to the competence needs of the labour market and create a competent, motivated and adaptable workforce capable of driving economic growth and development.


This strategy was developed with the involvement of a broad range of stakeholders from the private and public sectors assisted by the GIZ (German Technical Cooperation (GTZ) became GIZ as of 01.01.2011) as part of it's mandate, GIZ has been supporting and moderating the revising process of the TVET strategy.


The revised strategy defines the major principles of the intended TVET development in the coming years.  The main thrust of the strategy is that TVET development relies on a TVET system which is relevant, flexible, effective, efficient, accessible, sustainable, and which fulfills its general obligations as an integrated part of the educational system towards the Palestinian society.


On the other hand, the unified TVET strategy will provide the Palestinian labour force with market-oriented training, a structural ability to adapt quickly to changing circumstances and market needs, high quality in teaching through comprehensive and continuous teacher training and curricula development, a financially secure and independent TVET system and, ideally, equal participation of disadvantaged groups.


The overall objective of the National TVET Strategy is to create knowledgeable, competent, motivated, entrepreneurial, adaptable, creative and innovative workforce in Palestine contributing to poverty reduction and social and economic development through facilitating demand-driven, high quality technical and vocational education and training, relevant to all sectors of the economy, at all levels and to all people.



The National TVET Strategy aims to:

  • Create a TVET system that is: unified, relevant, effective, efficient, crisis resistant, flexible, sustainable, accessible, participator, LLL oriented, transparent, holistic, and attractive, ensures articulation and fulfills its general obligations towards the Palestinian society.
  • Create a coherent framework for all actors and stakeholders in the TVET system.
  • Strengthen TVET institutions in view of making them Centers for Technological Competence, Accumulation & Transfer based on local needs and capabilities.
  • Improve the quality of TVET (formal and non-formal) at all levels and make it responsive to the needs of the labour market.
  • Ensure equal access of women and people with special needs to TVET.
  • Strengthen the culture of self-employment and support job creation in the economy.
  • Take into consideration the participation of all stakeholders in the governance approach to ensure a unified system.
  • Develop a sustainable financing system for TVET with efficient and cost-effective delivery systems and management structure.
