Vocational education support in Iraq


The MFA's Unit for the Middle East supports Iraqi authorities' TVET capacity building. The planning phase of the project starts in January 2019, during which the Finnish National Agency for Education (EDUFI) prepares a project document. The actual project is supposed to begin later in 2019. The budget for the whole project is 500 000 euro, of which 25 000 euro can be disbursed for the planning phase during January-May 2019. Depending on the results of the project the Ministry may consider to widen the cooperation in the coming years. During an identification phase in Autumn 2018 an independent consult was hired to prepare a mapping of the Iraqi TVET sector relevant actors, donors and possible sectors/activities for cooperation. Based on the report the consult prepared, EDUFI was identified as the implementing partner for the project.
