Moreover, the reform significantly strengthens the regulator in the Ministry of Labor, Welfare and Social Services, and sets out an outline for the establishment of a council for technological education. In addition, the reform determines the stratification of the study track so that the students will be able to receive a technician's degree after only one year, and will receive a horizon for continuing studies after being certified as an engineer. This is in accordance with the needs of the employers and students in order to increase flexibility and innovation in the system.

The main points of the reform will include the following items:
1. Setting minimum criteria for a technological college, which will support at least 800 students in order to maximize the system resources and increase investment in each student.
2. An additional NIS 200 million budget plus an additional NIS 225 million for infrastructure and development
3. Creation of stratification in the engineering degree, which includes agreement as a technician after a year and a practical engineer after two years.
