Skills That Are In Demand In South Africa

Man writing Skills development
As more and more jobs are being eliminated due to the automation of industries, it is becoming increasingly important for individuals to acquire skills that are in demand. If you are not skilled enough with a certain skill set, you will not be qualified for any of the available jobs. This can lead to unemployment.

The age of rapid upskilling, reskilling and internal mobility is here. Never before have organisations across the globe seen such rapid acceleration of automation and economic uncertainty, as in the time post covid. 

Volunteering can most certainly help you get a job. There is a growing trend among universities to produce graduates that are practically prepared for the workplace and fully equipped to lead in every sector.

One of the biggest assets to any business is its employees. As the job markets continue to evolve, and business environments become more competitive, companies are realising why employee training and development is essential to an organisation.

Minister Blade Nzimande has announced what he called a 'huge decline' in skills development levies which are used to fund the Sector Education and Training Authorities.

A short course refers to learning that combines both practical and theoretical skills. It opens up many doors of opportunities for students to learn about a specific industry in a short period of time. The main purpose of short courses is to develop and upskill your current set of skills. It aims to provide you with the basic skills you need to become a professional in your chosen career field. The duration varies from a couple of weeks up to 6 months – 1 year depending on the type of course you are pursuing.
