A smorgasbord of statistics spanning an entire decade is available for Education and Training.
The NQF Impact Study 2002 – 2012
SAQA has released an amazing NQF impact evaluation report. We can mail it right to your inbox and save you some bother.
SAQA took a frikkin long time to produce this.
One can only hope that they have now acquired and correctly implemented a strategy to keep feeding a robust industry with these reports on at least an annual basis.
But round of applause to SAQA, let’s hope the details pan out… #FingersCrossed
Education and Training Market Intelligence
The wealth of information available in this study can be used by education and training organisations to strengthen their strategic growth plans. The insights offer information about market competition, barriers and opportunities.
Read the report
The Study is loaded with useful facts and details that will help you sharpen market insights about segmentation that we’ve never previously been able to quantify because so many components of the value chain are incomplete. For example, it’s still impossible to geographically map exact numbers of providers as SETA, QCTO and SAQA information is inadequately integrated and updated.
This frustrating factor impedes industry as they can’t quantify the range of available learning interventions and provider success rates.
Look at graduate information for possibly the most useful statistics and match them to scarce skills within your sector. If you can spot trends where insufficient candidates are graduating, try to ascertain the reasons why. Reasons can include the following:
- primary beneficiaries (learners) can’t afford to invest
- business believes the qualification is too long and opts for placing employees (18.1 candidates) on skills programmes
- poor marketing and programme packaging
