Human resources development is one of the key elements in rebuilding the Egyptian economy. This is required to ensure a supply of skilled and competitive workforce at the global level with high labor productivity. Skills development is an important engine in improving the employability and competitiveness of enterprises, thereby enhancing their development. Skills development facilitates a cycle of high productivity and job creation, contributing to increased incomes for the real overall economy growth. Some of the recommendations include: Promote labor market reforms targeting young people, providing them with incentives and training to promote entrepreneurship, implementing several reform strategies to help create a more market oriented labor force, and stimulating private employers to provide flexible hours for women, childcare, safe transportation and reasonable prices to ease their mobility as well as to provide support for females in the search for jobs that commensurate with their skills. The Aim of the study is to compare the vocational training schemes in Egypt and Germany. It also aims to identify the labor market challenges and the related obstacles in order to identify policies and reforms that would improve technical training schools to ensure that Egyptian youth had the skills to match the current market needs and eventually improve Egypt's competitiveness.
