Abstract

Education, in the form of technical and vocational training, helps to develop sound individual progress in scientific and
technological areas, and requires extensive technical competence and professional skills in addition to specific functional
capabilities. Therefore, the education system requires technical and vocational training in order to develop the knowledge
and skills that will help the workforce to become more flexible and responsive to the needs of the local labour market,
enhancing the possibility of competing in the global economy. Within the Libyan context, there is a need for centres of
technical and vocational education and training to reform their professional education programmes, and to seek to
integrate theoretical education with training appropriate for the labour market. There is also an urgent need for the
system of technical and vocational education and training in Libya to open up opportunities by providing comprehensive
education and training for all, including marginalized people. Such opportunities would enable Libyan citizens across civil
society, including inhabitants of villages, to equip themselves with the necessities for a decent and productive life, and are
vital for the prosperity and welfare of the Libyan community as a whole.
