Posted August 05, 2018 05:06:52 In recent years, the number of Israeli graduates of post-secondary programs has more than doubled.
The number of online degree programs has grown by almost 20 per cent in the last three years alone.
This is despite a lack of a strong, robust, and comprehensive system of credentialing and certification.
Israel has one of the lowest rates of college completion in the world.
According to the World Economic Forum, the average completion rate is only 57 per cent for Israelis in the lowest 20 per, or 30 per cent of the population.
More than a third of graduates in Israeli universities do not complete their degree.
According in the government-mandated education system, the only credential required for entry into the workforce is a master’s degree, which requires a high GPA and a strong writing score.
There are no requirements for post-graduation professional development, and students are encouraged to pursue their interests online, and they are encouraged not to go to university at all.
In fact, only five per cent graduates complete their education at universities, according to the Higher Education Ministry.
There is no guarantee that graduates of Israeli universities will achieve a degree in a given field.
The Ministry of Higher Education and Science did not respond to the Al Jazeera query on whether it has published a list of postgraduate programmes for Israeli graduates.
The government-imposed system of certification and certification is not universally recognized, according the International Association of Postgraduate Programs.
In its assessment, the association said that the Israeli government does not properly define the standards of competence and competency that must be present for the certification of postgraduates, and that the system does not adequately support graduates of lower education.
It cited as examples the fact that Israeli graduates cannot be awarded degrees in chemistry, biology, chemistry and mathematics because the Israeli Ministry of Education did not develop the appropriate system for the registration of postsecondary qualifications, and it has no mechanisms for certifying students with the relevant qualifications.
The association also noted that the government has not developed a system of post graduate certificates or certification.
The Association of Graduate Education Professionals in Israel (AGEI) said in a recent report that the lack of certification is a major obstacle to training.
The organization has identified several areas in which there are gaps in the system, such as lack of training, lack of qualifications and the lack to communicate about the standards that must exist for a postgraduate degree.AGEi also noted a lack in the training for the postgraduate students, which is why they often do not take the exams required for certification.
While there are two types of post graduation degrees, there are no certification requirements for those that are not post-graduate degrees, and this leaves a gap in the field, said AGEi spokesperson Elisabeth Schildt.
According the association, the government also lacks information on what it considers a post- graduate course, such a curriculum or the type of teaching and research that goes into them.
Some students are discouraged from applying for postgraduate degrees because of the lack and lack of information on the subject.
Accordingto the Association of Professional Engineers in Israel, the Ministry of Training and Employment does not provide information about what certification is or what standards are for a certificate, and the Ministry does not inform about its requirements for certification or the requirements for a certification.
In response to the association’s report, the ministry said it is working on the issue.
