What is the purpose of the Skills Development Act?

  • The short supply of skilled staff is a serious obstacle to the competitiveness of industry in South Africa. The Skills Development Act of 1998 aims to:
    Develop skills for the South African work force;
    Increase investment in education and training, and improve return on investments in those areas
    Encourage employers to promote skills development by using the workplace as an active learning environment;
    Encourage workers to participate in learnership and other training programmes;
    Improve employment prospects by redressing previous disadvantages through training and education;
    Ensure the quality of education and training in and for the workplace, and
    Assist with the placement of first time work-seekers
