The idea of establishing Nablus University for Vocational and Technical Education crystallized in response to the current Palestinian government's awareness of the importance of vocational and technical education and training and its role in bridging the gap between the outputs of education and training and the actual needs of the labor market, reducing unemployment levels among youth, maximizing productivity and improving competitiveness, increasing national income and thus improving the standard of living. As a culmination, Nablus University was established by a decision of the Palestinian Council of Ministers No 05/39/18/M.W/M.A on January 13, 2020.The university is a governmental univ. affiliated with the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research in terms of programs accreditation; however, it is completely under the umbrella of TVET Commission and is an executive tool for TVET-Strategies and Plans by providing higher levels of training and qualification (third, fourth and fifth levels), which are recognized regionally and globally within TVET system, that respectively include professions (weeks up to 1 Y), technicians/diploma (2-3 Y) and specialists/ bachelor (4-5 Y).
