Skills shortages in South Africa : case studies of key professions by J. (Johan); Breier, M. (Mignonne) Erasmus( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Skills shortages in South Africa are widely seen as a major obstacle to the achievement of targeted economic growth rates. Yet there is some dispute as to the nature and extent of these shortages, given the large number of unemployed graduates. The case studies presented here explore the question of shortage in nine key professions and artisanal trades, and find evidence of skills scarcity in most fields. The case studies provide insight into the reasons for shortages and surpluses in relation to South Africa's own context and history. They also consider the international market for knowledge and skills, in which South African qualifications are highly prized. The monograph emanates from a study on sector specific research and related skills requirements commissioned by the South African Department of Labour in 2006. It formed part of a wider research project on scarce and critical skills related to the National Skills Development Strategy and the National Industrial Policy Framework of 2007, for which the Human Siences Research Council led a research consortium comprising the Development Policy Research Unit at the University of Cape Town and the Sociology of Work Unit at the University of the Witwatersrand

Survey of activities of young people in South Africa 1999 : summary report on children's work-related activities( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

South African children aged between 5 and 17 years are expected to help the family and school by participating in both economic and non-economic tasks. This is the case particularly in the deep rural areas of the 'former homelands' where there are few job opportunities for adults, and where electricity and piped water are rare. For most children, however, this type of work does not take up a large proportion of their time. Nearly half (45% or 6,04 million) of South African children aged between 5 and 17 years (inclusive) were engaged in one or another kind of work-related activities, when using low time-based cut-off points. When higher cut-off points used, 36% (4, 82 million) of such children were engaged in work. As many as 51% of children living in the deep rural areas, that are mainly in the apartheid-created former 'homelands', were engaged in at least one form of work activity. Among children living in commercial farming areas, 35% were engaged in work activities. In informal urban areas the proportion of children involved in work decreased to 30% and in formal urban areas to 19%. Of all children aged 5-17, 0.9% (118 000) were engaged in economic work for three hours or more per week in commercial agriculture, 0.2% (26 000) in manufacturing, 0.01% (2 000) in construction and 0% (none were found) in mining
