Rabat – The British Council Morocco will organize a meeting on the topic “Employability of Marginalized Youth” on Tuesday at the General Confederation of Enterprises of Morocco (CGEM) in Casablanca.
The meeting aims at “building a collaborative international community focusing on the development of marginalized youth in Morocco and the United Kingdom” through a British Council program entitled “Skills for Employability,” which focuses on “skills development and vocational training”.
The program will be conducted in coordination with the CGEM and in partnership with, Moroccan organizations AIDA and Bayti, and British institutes Coleg Gwent, West Lothian College, and Coleg y Cymoedd.
According to a press release obtained by Morocco World News, “the meeting will raise awareness around the issue of employability of marginalized youth,” and aims “to strengthen dialogue and cooperation between the main private and state actors committed to the same issue in Morocco and the United Kingdom.”
The meeting will explain the details of a partnership that includes “elements of technical training, monitoring and educational support engagement with employers to ensure the care of the young beneficiaries in the development of their skills and build their future.”
This initiative was inspired by the vast number of youth facing many obstacles to employment. The program aims to provide skills and training for those in need, under the terms of a partnership between Morocco and the United Kingdom.
Young people from Cardiff and Edinburgh in the United Kingdom and Casablanca in Morocco will participate in the event. They will have the opportunity to exchange their experiences and knowledge overcoming their own difficulties in their access to employment. They aim to show those who are still trying that they can have a real chance to change their current situation.
