Moroccan Academic Year 2023

At a time when we are witnessing a considerable evolution in the development of specialties offered by higher institutes, a key question arises: how do these university courses respond to the job market? Indeed, many graduates find themselves facing unemployment due to a lack of suitable job opportunities. This situation raises concerns about the match between the training provided and the real needs of the job market. 

 In response to an oral question during the plenary session of the House of Representatives on Monday May 
29, the Minister announced that his department was committed to accelerating and transforming training systems. To this end, a number of measures have been taken, including the introduction of new courses of study that are compatible with the economic fabric. He added that the department is working closely with other ministries to put in place a clear strategy for 2030. These regular consultations will ensure a coherent, concerted approach. 

 “It’s undeniable that many of the training courses offered to date have become obsolete, particularly those offered in open-access institutions such as the Faculties of Law, Economics and Humanities. However, over 88% of our young people are enrolled in these courses. This is 
why the government will implement the National Plan to Accelerate the Transformation of the Higher Education, Research and Innovation Ecosystem (PACTE ESRI 2030)”, reveals Miraoui, noting that “this plan is based on the Royal guidelines for youth and the government program and draws on the recommendations of the New Development Model, developing an exchange approach with the various economic players”. 

 In the same vein, during the next academic year, all the training courses on offer will be developed and adapted in close collaboration with other ministries and taking account of the socio-economic context,” explained the Minister. Adjustments will be made to the pedagogical structure to integrate the development of personal and cross-disciplinary 
skills, as well as the inclusion of digital methods. This approach aims to produce students better prepared for the demands of today’s job market, with an emphasis on multi-skilling and technological tools.
