Centre for Education Policy Development
The Centre for Education Policy Development (CEPD), on behalf of the Human Resources Council of South Africa (HRDCSA) secretariat, invites suitable service providers to submit proposals for a review of the current skills development system with a view to inform the best model for delivering a skills development system that allows for the coordination and articulation of skills development efforts across all sectors of the economy, and all institutions engaged in the development of skills to support the goals of human resource development in the country. The objectives of the research are as follows
- Identify the strengths and weaknesses of the current skills development systems, as well as key dependencies and causes for these strengths and weaknesses.
- Assess the impact of the current skills system on the total employable population.
- Assess the impact of the current skills development system and the availability of critical and scarce skills on the performance and potential of the economy.
- Assess the appropriateness of the institutional and systems design for skills delivery including the manner in which it facilitates access to skills, and promotes quality, relevance, mobility and adaptability.
- Identify and evaluate the linkages and interdependencies between the various skills sub-systems e.g. foundational education, Seta’s, HET, FET, etc.
- Assess the efficiency and effectiveness of the system with respect to the allocation and usage of national resources.
