RESEARCH INSTRUMENT 1: This research guide introduces a new research framework, design and methodology that can yield evidence that complements and adds to the quantitative data traditionally used for skills planning. Specifically, the focus is on understanding interaction in skills development systems, and the capabilities of education and training organisations to form effective partnerships and learn through interaction – i.e. interactive capabilities. The guide should be read in conjunction with a set of fieldwork guides and templates for research in universities, TVET colleges, firms and intermediaries such as the Sector Education and Training Authorities (SETAs).
