ICT skills at the intermediate level in South Africa: Insights into private provision and labour market demand

The government and the private sector have recognised the invaluable role that information and communication technology (ICT) plays in responding to national socio-economic imperatives. The importance of ICT skills to the economic, social, and political trajectory in a globalised context cannot, therefore, be overemphasised. The potential of, and limitations to, intermediate-level ICT skills in so far as they contribute to South Africa's human resource capacity is considered essential to the country's current form and future trajectory of development.

The government and the private sector have recognised the invaluable role that information and communication technology (ICT) plays in responding to national socio-economic imperatives. The importance of ICT skills to the economic, social, and political trajectory in a globalised context cannot, therefore, be overemphasised. The potential of, and limitations to, intermediate-level ICT skills in so far as they contribute to South Africa's human resource capacity is considered essential to the country's current form and future trajectory of development. This research monograph examines the supply and demand for intermediate-level ICT skills in South Africa by studying selected training providers, giving insight into key demand elements. People interested in current developments in the ICT training field, as well as legislators and regulators of the industry, will find this research monograph essential reading.
