Abstract: 

This Briefing Paper begins from the bold assumption that it is intermediate skills that are critical to the future growth of the South African economy. The intermediate band of qualifications are postGrade 12, pre-degree qualifications (NQF Levels 5-6). These are the para-professionals and the midlevel technicians who hold career-oriented and vocational qualifications that are required in large
numbers in an increasingly sophisticated ‘knowledge’ economy. ‘Ramping-up’ provision in this band remains one of our greatest education and training challenges.
