The ILO in collaboration with UNICEF have taken the initiative to introduce the WBL system in the vocational and technical training programmes in Lebanon to contribute byo equipping graduates with labour-market-driven competencies as per the needs of the labour market. This manual intends to guide and support these endeavours. It targets both the formal and informal sector and will be used by in Lebanon (and other Arab countries) by the skills development practitioners and TVET administrators, instructors, in addition to the master craftspersons.

The short-term objective of this manual is to assist practitioners in Lebanon who are engaged in WBL programmes to plan, develop, and implement quality assured WBL programmes. The long-term goal is to support the government in formulation of a national strategy and policy framework to promote the WBL in Lebanon in collaboration with the social partners, and other relevant stakeholders.

This manual has been written building on the lessons learned from the different pilots for WBL programmes in agriculture and construction sectors supported by ILO, UNICEF, and FAO and implemented by different Governmental and non-governmental organisations in Lebanon during 2019 and 2021.
