It becomes very clear that there is a genuine and sincere lack of knowledge of the complexity of the skills development sub-sector – and the contribution it makes to the national economy.
So I thought I would put together a very summarised document indicating aspects of the sub-sector, without getting into a very lengthy, highly detailed “book”.
As all practitioners will well understand this is a very diverse, complex sub-sector.
So please make yourself a cup of coffee and read the attached document. I would very much welcome your input. What else must be in the summary? What is not correct, or should be taken out?
Appreciate your thoughts.Share on Social Media

It isn’t. It’s political.12th Jun 2020 at 11:31 am #75194Johann BotesParticipant
Yes the is a well written document and gives clarity. I genuinely hope that the people who need to make the decisions going forward also understand it in the same way as we do. I think you have summarized it spot on.
It is actually a pity that revenue loss cannot be connected to this document, which may be a good but difficult exercise, to establish the percentage providers are financially down on a year to date comparison from the previous year.
We are as small provider on a year to date comparison with last year are 74% down from 2019. Thus the impact is huge if you look t the figures. Some providers will be forced to close down.
Thanks for your effort.12th Jun 2020 at 12:19 pm #75195
yes thanks you for your post.
I am aware of the power dynamics at play.
However, my approach is to move forward in between/despite the players. I am committed to the implementation of skills development because I very firmly believe that it is the key pillar of redress.
In this case I do also believe that it is to the benefit the hundreds/thousands who are simply trying to survive.
I do also support the concept of Save the academic year Save lives – for all those learners part way through their Leanerships, Internships, apprenticeships, etc.12th Jun 2020 at 12:22 pm #75196
Thank you Johann. Now that is a very frightening figure and confirms what I feel about the sub-sector intuitively.
I want to send this document on to a number of email addresses. But I see no reason why we can’t also start working on some numbers.
One thing I want to add to the document is to explain that only the very largest employers have formally accredited skills training centres. The remainder of companies – including many of the largest – use private providers.
