NSA & Northern Cape skills development roundtable discussion
On Tuesday, 10 October 2017 the National Skills Authority (NSA) held a skills development Roundtable discussion in the Northern Cape bringing together 200 representatives from government, business, organized labour, SETAs, NGO’s, CBO’s, institutions of higher learning and private training providers, etc.
The purpose of the round table discussion was to bring together all skills development role players within the province to discuss the challenges and blockages experienced in the implementation of skills development interventions and find possible solutions on how to unblock them.
The round table sought to encourage thoughts/discussion on:
Fostering a common understanding of the roles and responsibilities of various stakeholders in the skills development landscape.
Skills development challenges confronting the province.
Building partnerships between all spheres of government and the private sector to enhance maximum participation of all sectors.
Commission research to determine the magnitude of SETA challenges and the value of their contribution within the province.
Possible interventions for the identified challenges.
Developing an action plan with clear timeframes on resolutions captured.
