Call to speed up procedures to launch “second chance” project for benefit of school drop-outs (Imed Hammami)

The examination of means to launch the “second chance” project for school drop-outs was the focus of a meeting Thursday between Vocational Training and Employment Minister Imed Hamami and a high-level delegation representing the French Development Agency (AFD).

Hammami called for an opportunity to accelerate procedures for the completion of studies on the launch of the “second chance” project for the benefit of school drop-outs, which is due to be launched in early 2018, according to a department press release Thursday.

Hammami also stressed the need to take into account the Marseille school’s model of combating absenteeism and dropping out of school, given its success, while adapting this experience according to Tunisia’s social specificities and economic development.

A model centre will be created in a first stage for young drop-outs between the ages of 16 and 25 by providing an adequate training to this category that meets their needs before generalise it later to other governorates where the rate of dropouts is high, the press release specifies.
