Author(s):  Kerr, A.
Publication year: 

A key area for policy in South Africa is how to develop a strong foundation of labour market information and to provide the type of intelligence and signals that can help government, stakeholders, education and training providers, and students to make more informed decisions about how resources are invested in skills development, education and training. In order to address this need the DHET initiated a four year
Labour Market Intelligence Partnership (LMIP) project, with research to be conducted by an HSRC consortium. The project investigates labour market and skill issues, with a view to produce recommendations on how education and training institutions could respond to signals from the labour market, with the goal of developing a credible skills planning mechanism for South Africa.
