On June 30th, a webinar was held on the Erasmus + TUNED project, “TUnisian Network for Employability and Development of graduates’ skills”, coordinated by AlmaLaurea and aimed at supporting the reform of the higher education system in Tunisia.
The webinar is part of a cycle of events on the subject of entrepreneurship and employability of graduates promoted by UNIMED, Mediterranean Universities Union, partner of the TUNED project, within the framework of the Subnetwork on Employability.
The webinar featured the results of 4 years of work developed in favor of the Tunisian Ministry of University and Scientific Research and the 9 Tunisian partner universities of the project, to monitor students’ study paths and analyze the characteristics and performance of graduates on the academic and employment fronts, as well as to encourage the match between supply and demand for skilled work, with particular attention to the challenges, lessons learned and the impact of the project.
The lively discussion between the speakers and the participants – representatives of 20 universities in the Mediterranean basin – identified avenues of reflection for the implementation of similar solutions in other national contexts.
