Skills Development Research and Analysis

The second strategic priority of the MQA strategic plan is to “support objective decision making for skills development through research in the sector”. The NSDS III places the importance of reliable and accurate data to inform skills planning.


One of the agreed MQA’s 6 strategic objectives in the SSP 2012-2017 and the Strategic Plan is to support objective decision-making for skills development through research in the sector. This is strongly aligned to the NSDS III goals of accurate data and good quality skills development research.

Given the need for MQA to focus on producing excellent labour market research, which includes increasing the accuracy of the WSP-ATRs submitted, the MQA will focus on 4 core labour market research projects in the year ahead. Furthermore impact assessments of priority programmes are planned as well as additional research reflected in the strategic plan and in support of South Africa’s mineral beneficiation strategy. Increased effort will be made to establish more formal cooperation with various national and sectoral institutions including universities regarding research related to the mining and mineral sector and skills development.
