In accordance with the Skills Development Act, 2008 section 10(a) each Sector Education and Training Authority (SETA) is required to develop the SSP within the framework of the National Skills Development Strategy (NSDS). The SETAs are mandated to promote skills development in their designated sectors. This process involves sector planning research to ensure that public investments in the skills development resonate with the needs of the SETA’s constituencies and key government economic and social priorities. In this regard, the SETAs are tasked to develop and submit Sector Skills Plan (SSP) Annual Updates to the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET).
Based on the above, the ETDP SETA would like to contract a research partner to conduct research that will provide authentic data and labour market related information to inform the SSP update for 2020/21. The research partner appointed will be allocated the Research Organizations subsector and will be expected to complete the project within six (6) months.
