In Tunisia, around 40 percent of youth are unemployed, many of them with only a secondary education or less. To help them find jobs, the government is undertaking a comprehensive reform of its active labor market programs (such as training, employment services, wage subsidies, and support for self-employment and entrepreneurship). With the reform, programs are being integrated and private service providers are being allowed to participate—with pay based on results (training provided, internships delivered, and job contracts signed).
 
The JKP recently spoke with Mohsen Bentouati—Sub-Director of Employment Programs, Ministry of Vocational Training and Employment—about the planned introduction of a biometric identification card. It will be used to monitor the operation of the programs, the use of services, and to make payments, along with ensuring that the people targeted are those most likely to benefit. He said the government will begin with a pilot program that covers the main regions, initially targeting 10,000 youth who are job seekers and unemployed—which will be rigorously evaluated to measure the impact on job opportunities.
