Tunisia: Harrow College, Dudley College, Centre de Formation et dApprentissage de Bizerte Afshan Baksh / Helena Mills Sanjeev Ohri Fadhel Sefi / Anis Chtiti
Overview June 2012 till June 2014 Textile industry Apprenticeship / Employer Engagement / Career Orientation / Quality The aim of the project is to support our partners in developing robust processes for Career Orientation/Advice and Guidance, Employer Engagement and Quality Assurance, thus meeting the developmental needs of the partner, its community and local employers. In order to achieve this, the UK partners will share good practice in these fields, specifically based around the vocational area of Fashion and Textiles and bringing UK expertise to the Tunisian education sector.
Three achievements The project has just been launched and therefore these are very new: Support and commitment from an employer who has a global reach An approach used by overseas partner, outside of the project brief, which would benefit one of the UK partners who have been struggling with a similar issue An opportunity has arisen for all partners to benefit from the new state of the art marina which is being built in Bizerte
One challenge There are still changes afoot in the new Tunisia. For example senior staff at a key organisation have been replaced. This means that we will need to start again with some of the relationship building and gaining the same support we had enlisted from their predecessors. Staff changes are to continue for a while yet and therefore it will be up to the project leads to ensure that the project remains focussed and progresses forwards.
Two benefits Encouraging professional dialogue by setting up mentoring/coaching links between staff in UK and overseas partner. Through point 1 – output of these dialogues can result in creating a new and innovative solution to issues
