Problem / Challenge The current skills supply system does not meet the demands of industry. It is segmented and poorly coordinated.
Skills supply challenges
Skills development faces three major challenges:
A significant gap between demand and supply of labour with growing industry demand far outpacing supply.
A weak technical and vocational education in terms of capacity and quality (poor teaching, large number of teacher vacancies, outdated buildings and equipment,curriculum unrelated to the work place, and lack of engagement with the private sector).
Limited involvement of employers and enterprises to provide market responsive training with high labour-market outcomes.
