      I am always very grateful to the range of people who submit information to me to ensure that skills-universe members are kept abreast of events. I have been receiving a number of different documents – I will try to space them out. As many will know I have more industrial relations experience than skills development experience, so in my terms – the attached document tables and sets out the opening gambit, the basis for a negotiation.

      As I understand the attached document –
      * it first sets outs the extent of our national dilemma on unemployment,
      * it notes particularly the extent of youth unemployment,
      * the relationship of level of education to unemployment is clear,
      * skills demand/skills available mismatch & international comparisons,
      * the effect of COVID & ILO stats confirming the extent of the effect,
      * how the skills levy holiday has affected the budget available,
      * but all the other financial contributions that the State has made,
      * and finally, the court decision to set aside the Regulation 4(4) published in Notice 23 of 2016 in GG 39592 – that is the Mandatory Grant reduction from 50% to 20% is set aside.

      Therefore, the proposal is:-
      as we have the SETAs established until 2030, (except MQA), and we have a National Skills Development Plan (NSDP) until 2030, supporting the National Development Plan (NDP),
      the DHET proposes:
      * that the community –
      * including BUSA and all other stakeholders –
      * I assume also including NEDLAC,
      should engage in consultation on new Grant Regulations, which will have a longer duration (unless some other unforeseen events occur).

      Personally, I would respond – I agree, let’s get to it.

      Please see attached document.
