This study was commissioned by the General People's Committee for Education and Scientific Research in Libya as part of the Libyan-German partnership project 'Improving the quality of Basic and Specialised Secondary Education'. It was included in the focus on strengthening the linkages between the education system and society needs, in particular, the labour market. The education system in Libya faces many challenges and has been described in 'Libya at the Dawn of a New Era: Improving Competitiveness in the Global Economy' (General Planning Council of Libya 2006) as disconnected from the demands of the job market which needs a 'jobready' workforce. As economic experts have stated, there is an urgent need to develop a human resources strategy in Libya and to review the education system so that a better match can be made between skills acquired in formal education and the requirements of a modern economy.
