TUNED, Tunisian Network for Employability and Development of graduates’ skills



The project is a bottom up approach, that starts from the graduates and their university, for modernizing and developing the HE sector within society, strengthening the relations between university and enterprises and improve in turn the quality of HE in place. Current information in Tunisia are in fact rather scattered for a continuous and effective monitoring on the training system, the labor market, and the link between them, and to forecast skills requirements of the labour market needs. The project will thus support Tunisian higher education system by the scaling up of the previous ISLAH observatory, database and platform to include the new coming universities, so to consolidate an integrated demand supply matching model based on the graduates’ database (on the model developed in Italy) designed for:

  • collect and analyse data on university and graduates performances (providing reliable, continuous and updated documentation for assessing the HE system at support of the ongoing reform process)
  • facilitate the university-enterprise cooperation (IT based on-line services are developed and made available to both graduates, and university staff and firms)
  • facilitate the placement of graduates in the labour market (ensuring a better match between education and employment).
  • develop monitoring tools for university/enterprise cooperation
  • improve internal and external efficiency of the higher education system
  • facilitate the orientation and placement of graduates

The project envisage the following Specific Objectives:

  • To build Tunisian capacities by transferring EU best practices on graduates’ employability and monitoring of universities’ performances
  • To enhance the empowerment of Tunisian universities
  • To strengthen university/labour market linkages
  • To increase the collaboration among Universities at local level
  • To support an “open” market for high qualified human capital
  • To improve the quality of the education system in Tunisia accordingly to international standards
