BTC joins forces with VDAB and SYNTRA in Palestinian Territory

  • BTC joins forces with VDAB and SYNTRA in Palestinian Territory

Since 2014, Belgium has the lead in the education sector in the Palestinian Territory.  Together with the Ministry of Labour and the Ministry of Education and Higher Education, the Belgian Development Agency (BTC) aims to enhance the quality and the capacities of training institutions. One of the objectives is to improve the quality and the labour-market relevance of technical and vocational education and training through the creation of public-private partnerships.

To further strengthen our expertise, BTC joins forces with the Flemish Public Employment Service (VDAB) and the Flemish Network for Entrepreneurship Training (SYNTRA). On April 22th, three experts of VDAB and SYNTRA met in Jerusalem with the Consul General of Belgium, Bruno Jans, and the Head of Development Cooperation, Florence Duvieusart, to discuss how the Palestinian partners can benefit from their expertise.

Both organisations participated last week in a practical training workshop organised by BTC in cooperation with the International Training Centre of the ILO on the management of technical and vocational training institutions. In the coming months VDAB and SYNTRA will work closely together with their Palestinian counterparts of the public and private sector to further strengthen the TVET sector.
