COFFEE

Geographical zone : Maghreb

Title: Co-construction of a High Employability Training Offer

Project description: The project aims to improve the employability of young Algerian graduates, by meeting the needs of the socio-economic sector for directly employable middle managers. To date, professional bachelor's degrees have not played the role expected of them, as they lack appeal for both students and potential employers. The project therefore aims to give the socio-economic world a say in formulating its needs and creating appropriate professional licenses.

UM's role : Coordinator

Duration : 2015/10/15 - 2019/03/14

Target countries: Algeria

Main beneficiaries: High school pupils, students, the socio-economic world and universities.

Objectives: The expected results are the opening of 18 pilot licenses in all, 2 per Algerian university. To date, the needs for middle managers in the socio-economic sector have been identified. Based on these needs, the Algerian universities are making 3 proposals for the professional bachelor's degrees they would like to open as part of the project. In parallel, and to prepare for the opening of these licenses, the consortium has worked on the production of a structural matrix, a procedure for the co-construction of highly employable training courses, as well as a directory of training courses, skills and professions.
The Algerians will also benefit from training in the "professionalization of training", and each university will send 4 teachers to the European partners to benefit from a transfer of skills.
