The Sector Skills Planning (SSP) research provides an overview of the skills gaps within the MICT industry, it outlines the interventions aimed at addressing Sector Priority Occupations that are considered scarce and critical. This research is documented in an annual 65-page document called the SSP which is based on an extensive triangulation process which involves consultation with the industry. The SSP research serves to:

  • Identify key drivers of change in the industry
  • Identify Top 10 Sector Priority Occupations (scarce skills and critical skills)
  • Identify SETA’s priority projects
  • Guide grant allocations

Through the outcome of the SSP research, the MICT SETA Strategic Plan is informed.  The research serves as basis for the development of the SETA’s Strategic Plan. Other documents informed by the broader outcomes of the SSP include:

  • 5 sub-sector mini research reports
  • Career opportunities guide

Other research conducted includes Tracer or Impact Studies, OFO Code Mapping and rural skills needs surveys.
