Abstract

This reported study explores the interaction between the outcomes of the Palestinian governmental secondary vocational education (the supply side) and the labour market (the demand side) from the perspective of graduates, training providers and employers. Issues related to the current status of secondary vocational education, gender, training and employability, communication and cooperation between the supply side and the demand side are discussed. The study has concluded that the Palestinian VSE is ineffective, unresponsive and irrelevant to the LM's needs and inputs. The linkage between secondary vocational education and the labour market is weak, superficial and not systematic Recommendations were made by training providers and employers to bridge the gap between SVE and the labour market. Keywords: Palestine; Technical and Vocational Education and Training; Secondary Vocational Education; Training; Employment; Labour Market.
