The upgrading of industrial secondary school is a sound response to the constraints facing technical education in the Egypt. The project aims to renovate and strengthen technical education, facilitate the integration of school leavers in a modern productive environment, and prepare the necessary broad foundation of technically oriented labour. Indeed, it's initiated in a context where existing technical secondary schools (EST) are not able to meet the needs of the country. They are, in fact, under-equipped and lack qualified teachers. The project, which should be implemented over a period of 40 months, consists of the following four components: (i) Initial Procurement; (ii) Equipment; (iii) Training; and (iv) the Project Implementation Unit (PIU).
The sector goal of the project is to upgrade the technical education system so as to allow this sub-sector to meet the human resources requirements of the country economic development within the framework of the 1988-92 National Five-Year Plan. The specific objectives of the project are as follows: 1) renovate and strengthen technical education offered by STS; 2) facilitate integration of school leavers into a modern productive environment, while preparing them to pursue higher education studies; 3) prepare the necessary broad formulation of technically oriented labour-power (both male and female) for performing under private or corporate modern management at national level, as well as for self-employment.
The main beneficiaries of the project are: the actors of the technical secondary school (teachers, pupils, parents of pupils, etc.) and the Egyptian government.
