Amid concerns over the quality of education and training, and in recognition of the country’s growing youth population, the Kuwaiti government has demonstrated its intention to revitalise the education sector through a series of policy reforms and investments in recent years. Some 37% of the population is under the age of 14, while 35% is between the ages of 15 and 34, making the provision of high-quality education and training facilities an essential part of national strategies for economic development and diversification. Many of the recent reforms were announced as part of the Kuwait National Development Plan, known as New Kuwait 2035, a government strategy that prioritises education as one of its seven policy pillars.
