Education & Training

Oman Education & Training

Successive five-year plans have seen Oman’s education system evolve rapidly, with highlights including the expansion of special education programs and the development of teacher-training colleges. In 2013 almost all children in the sultanate were enrolled in school while almost 98% of students completed primary school that year and 92% were enrolled in secondary school. Despite a drop in oil and gas revenues, the sultanate maintained its commitment to education spending in its 2015 budget, with the sector retaining a major share of state expenditure. This will enable a greater focus on both developing the physical infrastructure of the sector and improving the quality of its delivery. Meanwhile a national TVET strategy has been designed to address any mismatches between the requirements of the labor market and the skills and abilities of graduates.
