These reports were prepared at the request of the European Commission, and their aim is to give a general outline of the national vocational training and education systems as well as information about the main challenges facing them, from the perspective of an economic and social development strategy. More particularly, the intention of this report is to describe and analyse:

1) The main characteristics of Morocco’s national vocational training system;

2) The role of vocational training in the country’s socio-economic development and, in particular, its links with the changes in the labour market and the improvements in companies’ human resource skills;

3) The process of upgrading the vocational training system, in which Morocco has been involved for several years now as part of the projects financed by the European Union and other donors; and

4) The employment system.
