Morocco's Office of Vocational Training and Employment Promotion (OFPPT), a public training institution that offers vocational education across 35 fields of study via 327 training institutes across Morocco, has chosen Microsoft Office 365 to help enhance its education and vocational training solutions. In addition, OFPPT will work with Microsoft Corp. to create 100 new Microsoft IT Academies across the country. This strategic partnership is designed to transform education and enable OFPPT to continue its mission to offer quality training that aligns with the needs of young Moroccans and the regional economy.

"The approach we've taken with Microsoft is a model of public and private partnership for advanced professional training in the ICT sector," said Larbi Bencheikh, general director, OFPPT. "The use of new technologies will actively contribute to human development, as well as support the growth of the national economy and ongoing infrastructure projects through effective, efficient and proven Microsoft solutions."

Extending Adult Education

Founded in 1974, OFPPT manages vocational training centers across Morocco and provides diversified services, such as seminars and technical courses, training via mobile units, remote learning, intensive adult training, functional literacy courses, and evening classes. Along with adding 500,000 users to the Office 365 cloud solution, OFPPT and Microsoft will create 100 new IT Academies, including some in the midst of prisons around Morocco.
