President Aoun keen on securing jobs for graduates of technical schools


President Michel Aoun said yesterday that he is very keen to secure jobs for graduates and students of vocational schools, considering it a priority to strengthen the production sectors in the country. Aoun was speaking during his meeting at Baabda Palace with a group of students who ranked first, second and third in the technical and professional education, (400 students). Aoun also emphasized the need to boost and empower vocational education in order to contribute to 70% of public education, given the ample prospects available to its graduates. Concurrently, the US Embassy in Lebanon jointly with LAU and AUB celebrated the admission of a new batch of students under Tomorrow’s Leaders Program sponsored by the US-Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI). On the occasion, the representative of the Embassy said in her address to the students, “We look to you as a force of change in your communities.” To note, the total number of students beneficiaries from the US-funded program that provided free college education, has reached some 369 students since 10 years.
