Saudi Arabia ranks first globally in technical and vocational education

The ranking is based on the Global Knowledge Index (GKI) 2022 

Riyadh, March 05, 2023: Saudi Arabia has been ranked first globally in the percentage of students enrolled in post-secondary non-tertiary education (ISCED 4), in technical and vocational programmes, based on the Global Knowledge Index (GKI) 2022.

The index is issued by Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge Foundation in collaboration with United Nations Development Programme. It provides reliable data to help countries and decision makers to understand and face the real transformations and challenges, as well as discover future prospects and potential paths.

The Global Knowledge Index contains seven composite sub-indices that focus on the performance of six vital knowledge sectors: pre-university education; technical and vocational education and training; higher education; information and communications technology; research, development and innovation; and economy.

It also has a special sub-index for enabling environment that diagnoses social, political, economic, health and environmental context for those sectors.

Dr. Al-Fahaid, Governor, Technical and Vocational Training Corporation (TVTC) said that expanding colleges and institutes capacity annually is one of the objectives of TVTC, which has been working on this goal since the launch of the National Vision 2030. In 2021, the target was 24%, and TVTC was able to attract more than 28% of high school graduates.

In 2022, the TVTC target was to accept 26% of high school graduates wishing to enroll in technical training programmes.

Dr. Al-Fahaid added that several initiatives and programmes the TVTC worked on enabled it to achieve its goals in this aspect; among them, the most prominent are: expanding bachelor’s programmes and expanding training programmes that begin with employment.

The initiatives included providing specialised programmes that are compatible with the needs of the current and future labour market in the country, launching several programmes to secure employment of graduates of both genders, as well as expanding training and development programmes for women.
