The apparent mismatch between industry needs and the educational outcomes of the South African system points to a potential lack of responsiveness on the part of post-school education and training institutions, to enhance the employability of their graduates.This study explores the interface between various dimensions of the curriculum, and the drivers of institutional and curriculum responsiveness, within the context of debates about employment and employability. The lens of curriculum responsiveness was used to conduct seven case studies in two economic sectors:agribusiness, and automotive production and maintenance. Curriculum responsiveness is a complex interplay of multiple factors, and not a simple correspondence between employer needs and the curriculum.
