Educating Our Youth To Be Future Leaders
Transforming education in Libya to catalyze the socio-economic changes envisioned by Ihya Libya Vision 2023 will require effective governance mechanisms to coordinate institutions, align economic policy with the education and training system, and ensure the quality of institutions and programs. The institutions which have policy-making, regulatory, and operational authority to govern Libya’s education system lack coordination mechanisms to reduce overlapping authority, promote systemic adaptation, and ensure quality at all levels. There are no mechanisms to surmise emerging skill requirements required by the national workforce and to include the views of external stakeholders in education system and planning policies. This lack of coordination to meet economic and development needs has led to high levels of youth unemployment and a mismatch between the qualifications of outgoing students and the needs of the labor market. Enhancing cooperation between ministries as well as increased information sharing between employers and the ministries involved in education and training will help anticipate the skills needs of the economy and provide the labor market with a well-equipped workforce.
