Abstract:Almost 3 million South African youths between the ages of 18 and 24 are so-called 'Neets', i.e. not in education, employment or training. The country faces serious challenges in providing its youth with pathways to transition successfully into a differentiated system of post-school education and training. This volume offers an overview of the different facets of post-school provision in South Africa, paying attention to the impact of the national qualifications system on occupational training, the impact of youth unemployment, the capacity of the post-school system to absorb larger numbers of young people, the relationship between universities and Further Education and Training colleges, the need for more strategic investment in skills development, and a youth perspective on education and training policy.
