Vocational Training in Israel
One of the important instruments for expanding participation in the Israeli labor market and reducing unemployment in the long term is vocational training. Experience from many European countries indicates that specific programs initiated by the government with the participation of the business sector, trade unions, the self-employed and the employees themselves, have proved to be highly successful and attained these goals.In addition, we are interested in proposing a structured, operational program, to make these models applicable to the Israeli labor market.
