Palestine is affected by a prolonged military occupation, which has severe socio-economic effects on the population, in particular among youth. As a consequence unemployment is on the rise with figures above 40% in the Gaza Strip. Many young people even with a degree cannot find a job. Yet various labour market studies have indicated that employers complain that they cannot find employees with adequate competences to work in their companies and that youngsters with technical skills are in high demand in Palestine. Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) should therefore be the best career choice for youngsters to acquire relevant skills to find a job and to provide the labour market with the skilled youth it needs.
