LMIP Capacity Building Programme: Session 5 - Methodologies to identify skills needs

Tuesday, 16 August 2016


The Labour Market Intelligence Partnership (LMIP) is a unique undertaking designed to inform and support evidence-based skills development policy in South Africa. In addition to research collaboration and information sharing, this large-scale programme includes a component aimed at research and institutional capacity development in the country. This is a very ambitious goal, conceptualised to move beyond increasing the number of researchers working in this area (through a bursary and internship programme), to focus on strengthening and supporting the capacity of the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) and other stakeholders to manage a labour market intelligence system through structured learning sessions.
