Goldfields TVET College
On a daily basis, South African employers are confronted with problems and challenges arising from a shortage of adequately qualified and experienced candidates to employ. The flipside of this is that many young people obtain vocational or occupational qualifications from TVET Colleges but are unable to access the job market, because they lack workplace experience. This occurs in the context of a skills crisis in South Africa and a desperate need to grow the economy and also create jobs to alleviate poverty and the consequences of this. One of the biggest challenges South Africa faces is a large population of unemployed youth, many of whom have matric or TVET qualifications, but no employment prospects due to a lack of work experience.
