Whether its upskilling, reskilling or learning something for the very first time, training schemes and courses are an excellent way of building your skillset and improving your career prospects. Despite online trainings being plentiful and at your fingertips – think edX or Udemy – other forms of trainings are also readily available in Egypt.

Egypt boasts an impressive selection of training courses and schemes, such as apprenticeships, on the job trainings, and courses under Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) system. Choosing one of these paths ensures that you can develop both technical and soft skills covering a wide variety of jobs. Training schemes such as these are linked to the kind of skills that employers are looking for, which is great news for job opportunities post-training. Below we have laid out some of the opportunities available from both the private and government sectors. The cost of these programmes varies between institutions and programmes, and some Egyptian banks offer student loans to cover the costs.

Egypt’s Governmental TVET System:

The largest training services on offer are by far those of the Egyptian TVET system, with nearly 3,000 institutions offering programmes covering a large variety of specialisations in the pre-university, tertiary, formal and non-formal sectors.

In order to apply for a TVET course, you need to create a profile on the official Ministry of Education and Technical Education’s website found here.

The process is primarily guided by an in-person entrance exam relating to the courses of choice, and finally an interview. Further than this, each course will have slightly different requirements - for example some courses are specific to the governorate of residence, some courses only admit men, others only cater to those 18 and under.
