The Tunisian-Swiss Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCITNCH) and Swiss Contact, on Wednesday, kicked off a project to improve and enhance the skills of human resources.
“This project is part of the vocational training and integration program for young people in Tunisia, launched jointly by the Embassy of Switzerland in Tunisia and the Ministry of Vocational Training and Employment, the second phase of which started in January 2016 to
extend to 2020 “, Hamda Zeramdini, Executive Director of Swiss Contact told TAP at a reception held in Tunis.
“With an amount worth EUR 1.5 million, the project aims primarily to develop the human resources management system in enterprises and promote the employability of graduates,” he added.
For the president of the CCITNCH, Emna Allani, the project aims to develop a “dual training” (alternating training) that takes place in both the training center and within the company. “
This training, which has “already proven its worth in Switzerland”, will familiarize young graduates and recruits who lack basic skills with office techniques (how to write an email in business French, how to develop a summary report, how to deal with customers…).
Tunisia and Switzerland will sign next Monday a cooperation agreement in the field of vocational training.
