What are Critical Skills?

According to the Framework for Identifying and Monitoring Scarce and Critical Skills [DHET, 2005, p.7], critical skills refer to particular capabilities needed within an occupation, for example, general management skills, communication and customer handling skills, teamwork skills, problem solving [cognitive skills], communication [e.g., language and literacy skills] and technology skills. Scarce skills are addressed by equipping people with registered qualifications on the national qualifications framework (NQF) such as degrees, diplomas or certificates or part qualifications, while critical skills can be acquired through registered part-qualifications or nonregistered short courses which can include individual modules within a qualification.

In short.

Critical Skills: GAP's can be filled with short courses. (Accredited or not accredited).

Scare Skills: GAP's can only be filled with Qualifications, Degrees. This is occupations/jobs that needs to be filled.
