Interview of Dr. Oussama Jadayel, University of Balamand - June 2003

Education and Training

The commitment of today's educational system is to provide quality education and professional training adapted to the needs of a modern society. In a country with few natural resources, the human one is fundamental, and Lebanon succeeds in maintaining its education policy.

The country has the highest rates of literacy and school attendance in the region and universities provide a superior level of academics, equalling the highest standards in the world. Students that graduate from Lebanese universities are internationally sought and recognised as highly qualified. This is turning into a major concern for the future: Lebanon will have to implement a policy to keep its skilled work force within the country, most of which is looking for jobs in foreign companies as the economic situation, and the level of domestic wages are not offering what could be expected after a long course education.

Such good results are obtained thanks to the attention that is given to studies throughout a child’s life. From pre-scholastic programs to primary and secondary schools, everything is done to give students all the opportunities they deserve. Arabic is the common language shared by all Lebanese, and English and French are widely spoken by the majority. The educational system is based on the French baccalaureate, and is at the dawn of a new era. By nature this sector is in constant evolution and the introduction of Information and Communication Technologies will probably bring new horizons to the education sector and especially to vocational training.

People will have the possibility to be trained from the office or from their home. ICT is imposing further changes, and as such, the profile that companies are looking for is changing. A programmer can now monitor three machines where three people were needed only 10 years ago.

Developed countries are facing difficulties in finding qualified IT employees. However, countries such as Lebanon that have understood the importance of this sector will fill this gap in the near future.
