The Dual Training System Program

FORTE assists the Egyptian Government in its endeavors to restructure its technical education and training system towards a labor market oriented one by the introduction of the dual vocational training. FORTE is supporting the dual system concept in Greater Cairo area in following sectors:

Industrial Mechanics
Electrical and Electronic Installation
Ready Made Garments
Auto Maintenance and Repair
General Administration Clerk
International Transportation Clerk
Service and Housekeeping

The occupational profiles are a three year training program ending with a diploma degree. Throughout the training period and following the principal of the dual system the apprentice will be spending two days per week at school (provides by the Ministry of Education) for theoretical training and four days in company training.


The National Employment Pact (NEP) – Employment Services for Egypt

Forte holds the innovative project ‘The National Employment Pact (NEP)’, thereby assisting young Egyptians to find a decent job. The NEP promotes sustainable employment through offering employment services, and fair and decent jobs to job seeking young Egyptians.

The NEP caters exclusively to the Blue Collar segment of the labor market, where jobs do not represent viable career opportunities for young Egyptians because of its often poor working conditions and little social prestige.
