The purpose of this body of work is to recommend a reform in the Israeli vocational training system amongst the Ultra-Orthodox and Arab populations. It constitutes as an additional phase in the multiyear project undertaken by the Macro Center for Political Economics and the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, which included in 2012 a proposal for a general overhaul of the vocational training programs offered in Israel. The core assumption of the entire project is that proper vocational training offers adults the opportunity to integrate in an honorable manner in the labor market, elevates the participants’ socio-economic status and betters the compliance of the work force and the market’s demands.
