Alongside the many achievements of the Israeli economy in recent years, there are also quite a few weaknesses. High poverty rates, high inequality and low labour productivity are the main weaknesses of the Israeli economy in recent years. More than 30% of Israeli youth have an inadequate education that does not enable them to acquire a profession in the future.
Israel lacks midlevel professionals and therefore is often forced to export jobs or recruit workforce from overseas. There is a high demand for workers, especially in the industrial sector and construction industry.
Facing this image, the project aims to create implementable improvement plans for the TVET system in Israel, which hopefully can bring change to this situation. The three major cities of the southern district of Israel – Ashdod, Be’er Sheva and Ashkelon – were chosen as a pilot for this project.
