The Skills Development Summit 2018 will unveil a pragmatic vision of skills development that integrates the need to develop skills, create jobs and grow the economy.
This vision will be set within a framework of inclusivity and social transformation, and will be displayed against the backdrop of international competition, which represents the bar to which South Africans need to aspire to raise themselves. It’s a game-changing vision,and Skills Development Summit will provide the workshop in which an exciting economic future will be forged for industries and the nation as a whole.
Enter the Knowledge Economy
As South Africa enters the Knowledge Economy generation, the importance of sustainable and relevant skills training and development is the key factor in the growth of our economy over the coming decade and beyond. Human resources are the great new asset of the global economy, and the digitization of Africa offers the continent the opportunity to advance at a rapid rate in terms of global productivity.
Skills development has little value without a targeted and well thought-out plan, and the National Government, the HRDC, as well as the numerous SETAs and TVET Colleges throughout South Africa have played a key role over the past few years in developing plans and strategies for ensuring a focused and sustainable developmental plan that is aimed at ensuring the right skills are being developed at the right time and for the right individuals.
From teachers to artisans, engineers, scientists, mathematicians and entrepreneurs, the blueprint has been drawn up,debated, refined and now rubber-stamped. All that remains is for the various sectors and industries to build on this blueprint, adapting where required as needs and opportunities evolve.

Attendance will ensure that an organisation’s own skills development initiatives are in line with the national blueprint.
