Women and their Professional Future: An Assessment of Training Needs and Training Programs in Morocco.
Youssef, Nadia H.
This report examines the professional future of women in Morocco. There are five major sections. Section one provides background information about the report. An exploratory trip was made to Morocco to (1) investigate ways to promote the entry of a large number of women into the public sector and social service agencies and to upgrade those women who are currently employed into more responsible positions, and (2) identify local training organizations which do or can operate training programs for women. Section two describes the educational system of Morocco. There is a great deal of failure and withdrawal at all levels. Section three, entitled "Identification of Training Needs," deals first with common themes that emerged in discussions regarding particular areas of training for which there is national need and then identifies the particular segment of the female population which is in greatest need to participate in any projected training program. This is followed by a listing of some particular needs for training and supportive assistance which were articulated by specific organizations or individuals. Section four examines the opportunities for and constraints working against the promotion of women in the civil service. Emphasis is given in this discussion to existing mechanisms which might be maximized to work more favorably in the interest of women's upward mobility in the public sector. The report ends with a brief discussion in section five of what the policy implications might be for the different types of training programs. (Author/RM)
