The Steel and Engineering Industries Federation of Southern Africa (SEIFSA) requests your company’s support for the 2019 research study that the Manufacturing, Engineering and Related Services Sector Education and Training Authority (MERSETA) awarded to SEIFSA.
SEIFSA in partnership with FR Research Services, led by Prof Hoosen Rasool, to conduct research on the extent of artisan skills imbalances (shortages or surpluses) in the Metal Industry and the use of accredited recognition of prior learning (ARPL) as a vehicle to increase the pool of skilled labour. The findings are expected to feed into the MERSETA sector skills planning process and provide skills intelligence for informed decision-making in its structures.
SEIFSA would appreciate your support by giving Prof Hoosen Rasool and his research team your inputs in the form of an interview or short questionnaire in this research investigation. As a key stakeholder in the industry, we value your insights on this matter.
Please contact Melanie Mulholland or Michelle Norris at SEIFSA if you require further clarification about the study. They can be reached at (011) 298 9443 during office hours. SEIFSA appreciates your support of this industry-benefitting research initiative.
